Visual Concepts’ super-successful NBA 2K franchise is returning with NBA 2K21! In the press release, it mentions that the NBA 2K21 cover athlete for this generation (PS4, Xbox One), will be Portland Trailblazers star Damian Lillard.
To mark this announcement, a new trailer has been revealed called “Everything Is Dame” which you can watch below.
Here’s what Lillard had to say about his NBA 2K21 cover athlete announcement as well as a look at the cover itself.
This is a special moment for me in my NBA career. I’ve been a fan of NBA 2K for years and love how they represent all aspects of basketball culture. I’ve been playing 2K my whole life and I’m honored to join the other NBA greats who have been on the cover. I’m grateful to all my fans and can’t wait for everyone to experience this game later this year. – Damian Lillard, Portland Trailblazers
While Lillard might be the cover athlete for NBA 2K1 for current-gen (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Google Stadia), the press release notes that there will be an announcement for the next-gen (PS5, Xbox Series X) cover athlete tomorrow.
Once we know more details regarfing tomorrow’s announcement, we’ll let our readers know. That said, don’t be surprised if a certain no. 24 is announced as the next-gen NBA 2K1 cover.
