Devin Brooker also unveiled as NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete


Accompanying the announcement of Michael Jordan’s return as Cover Athlete for two editions of NBA 2K23 earlier this week, 2K has also revealed that the Phoenix Suns’ Devin Brooker will be featured on the standard edition of the game, as well the cross-gen Digital Deluxe edition.

Brooker is a three-time NBA All-Star and was in the 2021-22 Kia All-NBA First Team selection. In the US and Canada, a further WNBA edition will be available featuring the Phoenix Mercury’s Diana Taurasi and Seattle Storm’s Sue Bird, but this will apparently not be an option in Australia. Brooker’s appearance on two editions of the game in Australia means there’ll be four total editions of NBA 2K23, outlined below from 2K – it should also be noted that the Digital Deluxe, Michael Jordan and Championship Editions all have dual-gen access on PlayStation and Xbox:

More information will be shared in the coming months.
