Developed by Visual Concepts, a 2K studio, NBA 2K16 is not yet rated by the ESRB. NBA 2K16 is scheduled for release on PS4™, PS3™, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC on September 29, 2015 in North America, but preorders can get it early on September 25th.
Demonstrating the NBA 2K series’ commitment to authenticity and innovation, 2K and Visual Concepts joined forces with legendary filmmaker and master storyteller Spike Lee to direct, write and co-produce the NBA 2K16’s MyCAREER experience enabling fans to be the story of an NBA player with drama never before experienced in a sports game. Lee’s resume, not only as the most famous fan of the New York Knicks, but as director for the classic feature film He Got Game and Nike’s Mars Blackmon commercial series, demonstrates his passion for basketball culture and storytelling ability which culminate as an interactive experience in NBA 2K16’s MyCAREER.
“Partnering with legendary 2K and Visual Concepts is one of the most unique challenges I’ve had in filmmaking, and allows me to push the boundaries of innovative storytelling,” said Spike Lee. “My hope is fans will feel even more connected to the world of basketball in NBA 2K16.”
Paralleling Curry, Harden and Davis’ path to stardom, NBA 2K16’s MyCAREER gameplay will combine NBA 2K’s most-played mode with a rich, original story written and directed by Lee and produced by Lee’s production company, 40 Acres and a Mule.
“Working with Spike Lee on NBA2K16’s MyCAREER has elevated our most popular game experience from both a visual and narrative perspective,” said Greg Thomas, President, Visual Concepts. “By writing and directing the MyCAREER storyline, Spike brings the real world experience of the NBA to life like never before making NBA 2K16 the ultimate simulation.”
