The cover player for the standard edition is yet to be announced, while LeBron James will appear on the 20th Anniversary Edition cover. It will be the direct sequel to NBA 2K18, and is expected to be followed by NBA 2K20.
Development & Features
NBA 2K19 will be a sim-oriented basketball video game, likely retaining modes such as MyCAREER, MyGM, MyLEAGUE, MyTEAM, The Playground, The Neighborhood, and 2K Pro-Am, as well as gameplay elements such as the Pro Stick. The current gen version of the game is built on the Eco-Motion engine, which made its debut in the PlayStation 4/Xbox One version of NBA 2K14. It is also expected to retain additional content such as the historical squads and All-Time Teams.
Editions & Cover Players
On June 5th 2018, LeBron James was revealed as the cover player for the 20th Anniversary Edition of NBA 2K19. The anniversary cover art is a departure from the usual style for NBA 2K, and notably features LeBron wearing a generic black jersey. On July 2nd, the cover player for the standard edition of the game was revealed to be Giannis Antetokounmpo. The cover art featuring Antetokounmpo had been inadvertently leaked a week prior. Ben Simmons was announced as the first Australian cover player on July 4th. The 20th Anniversary Edition of NBA 2K19 will retail for $99.99 USD, while the standard edition will cost $59.99 USD.
NBA 2K19's pre-order bonuses were revealed on June 5th, alongside the announcement of the 20th Anniversary Edition featuring LeBron James on the cover. Unlike previous years, only customers who pre-order the 20th Anniversary Edition will be able to play the game four days early on September 7th.
