Polygon is reporting that Spike Lee has had a role in developing NBA 2K16’s MyCAREER mode, as revealed by leaked promotional materials. Lee is mentioned on the game’s cover with the familiar credit “A Spike Lee Joint”, along with the tagline of “Be The Story”.
The leaked images have also given us a glimpse of this year’s cover players. Similar to NBA 2K12, it appears as though NBA 2K16 will be available with three different cover players to choose from: Stephen Curry, James Harden, and Kevin Durant, who also appeared on the cover of NBA 2K15, and alongside Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin on the NBA 2K13 cover.
No official announcement has been made as yet, and while Polygon has been able to confirm the leaked images as authentic, a 2K Sports representative has declined further comment at this time. Nevertheless, it would seem an official announcement will be coming soon, along with details on Spike Lee’s involvement with the game.
