This limited edition also gives players the opportunity to lock in all the action throughout the season with a 12-month subscription to the included NBA League Pass. We look forward to celebrating this game with the community when it launches on September 9th.”

Not only is Michael Jordan returning to the covers of NBA 2K23, this year the 'Jordan Challenge' returns, challenging players to relive 15 iconic moments from Jordan's glorious career.
