"NBA 2k17" has long been revealed to arrive. In fact, pre-orders have reportedly started already. However, rumor has it that its release date might likely be pushed back. Why? This is due to significant line-up changes in NBA -- specifically Kevin Durant's move to Golden State Warriors.
As previously reported here at iTech Post, "NBA 2k17" is slated to hit the shelves on September 20 this year. It will arrive on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Apart from that, the upcoming title is already made available for pre-orders, with fans having the option to select three types of editions.
However, the release date for "NBA 2k17" is taking the center-stage after rumors about its possible delay surfaced. This all rooted from former Oklahoma City Thunder and now Golden State Warriors Kevin Durant.
According to Mobile & Apps, KD's decision to take his talents alongside Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson somehow affected the development of "NBA 2k17" in one way or another. This is for the main reason of a possible unbalanced lineup.
The good thing, though, is that 2k developers have neither deny nor confirm the "NBA 2k17" speculations. Hence fans might just want to chew it up as a grain of salt. After all, pre-orders for the game are still set in place. And this alone could make the possible delay close to non-existent.
For "NBA 2k17" fans who pre-ordered the game, they are expected to receive the title four days earlier than the announced release date. Pre-ordering is synonymous to acquiring the standard Early Tip-Off, Kobe Bryant Legend Edition and, the last but not the least, the Kobe Bryant Legend Edition-Gold for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The said editions are priced at, respectively, $59.99, $79.99 and $99.99.
"NBA 2k17" is believed to include better performances in terms of Face-scanning, something that was a huge issue in 2k15. Moreover, an improved MyCareer is also expected, as well as some fixed story levels.
