With NBA 2K21 having been out since last September (current-gen) and November (next-gen) and now well into its life cycle, many players are looking towards the future with NBA 2K22 and when they’ll be able to pre-order the upcoming game.
When to Pre-Order NBA 2K22
As of this writing, 2K hasn’t released official information about the NBA 2K22 pre-order, but we can use previous versions of NBA 2K pre-order dates as a reliable reference of when to expect it.
If 2K and NBA 2K22 sticks to the usual schedule from past years, as expected, then early July 2021 will be the time frame that NBA 2K22 pre-orders will be available, along with information on the NBA 2K22 pre-order bonuses.
Where to Buy NBA 2K22
The most common places to pre-order NBA 2K22 are Amazon, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Gamestop, and the official 2K Store.
What NBA 2K22 Pre-Order Bonuses to Expect
NBA 2K pre-order bonuses typically include digital content add-ons such as virtual currency (VC), clothes, shoes, accessories, skill and Gatorade boosts, MyTEAM cards, and even unlocked player animations. The amount of bonus content is based on which version of the game was pre-ordered. Along with versions for each console generation, there are two versions of the game: Standard Edition and Legend Edition. The Legend Edition version will offer more digital content than Standard due to it being the more expensive version.
As for the NBA 2K22 release date, going off of past years, NBA 2K22 will likely release sometime between September 3, 2021 and September 10, 2021.
