2K to Issue Updated NBA 2K18 Kyrie Irving Cover in Boston Celtics Uniform at a Later Date

2K will issue an updated NBA 2K18 cover, featuring Kyrie Irving in his newly acquired Boston Celtics gear. Unfortunately, the updated cover will ship at a later date, not specified. Senior vice president of basketball operations for 2K sent the official statement to GameInformer and Polygon.

We are excited to be part of one of the most memorable NBA offseasons in history with Kyrie, our 2K18 cover athlete, and Isaiah, one of the stars of our 2K roster, trading places. This isn’t an unprecedented event, a cover athlete being traded – but it’s certainly interesting timing with 2K18 being released in less than a month. The good news is that as the most authentic and realistic basketball game on the market, we’re used to being nimble and responding to changes in the NBA. Fans should be thrilled to know that we will issue a version of 2K18 featuring Kyrie in a Boston Celtics uniform at a later date.

Bleacher Report took at stab at the new cover.

    It been nice if they would send out a copy of the new cover provided you had a receipt as proof of purchase.

    I expect they'll offer a 'print your own' option.

    I wonder if the digital cover will be Kyrie in a Celtics or Cavs uni.
    Or if they'll update it later on.

    I think we both know the answer to that already...

    Remember when Brett Favre was traded to the Jets but EA kept him in his Green Bay uniform on the cover?  No big deal, besides Kyrie is wearing the old Cavs uniform and no one seems to care.
    I wonder how much later? 
    If I don't pre-order and wait a week to buy the game will the updated cover be out by then? With the game being 3 weeks away, I thought they might be able to get it updated before release.

    I'm guessing all Star break or December. They probably have a warehouse with Millions of covers. Good luck changing that. Like some said. I wouldn't care.

    Just saw this on ESPN, very interesting sounds like IT's physical didn't go over very well.

    The Cleveland front office, as well as the entire league, already knew his hip was in bad shape - they're just angling for more assets.

    So how awkward would it be if the deal fell through.
    Both teams.
    As a Pacers fan.
    :popcorn:

    Business as usual I don't buy the Lebron/Kyrie drama. Cleveland is done and now everybody looking for their exit plan. Lebron will be out so Kyrie needs to find his new contending home.
    i find it hilariously interesting since he hurt said hip in last years playoff series vs the cavs anyway. been looking for that play, but it's been hard to find. they didn't show it on replay when it happened. nor could i find it from nba or ximo.

    Well the Celtics camp claimed he was injured in the previous series and he aggravated it when he went up against Cleveland.

    Not really a big deal to me since I don't really care about covers on games.

    Don't usually care either but since he's my favorite player in the league I care now. :nocomprende:

    I will never understand the paradox of not caring so much, that you care to let people know you don't care. It's so weird.
    Anyway, I think it's dope. If that pic on the switch is legit, I'd be a little upset because I like the layup cover. I seen a really nice Photoshopped version of the original with just the jersey updated (I think in this thread?) that I like better though.

    Human need to express individuality.
    2K's photoshop looks a bit better than the one that was floating around to me. Cleaner, anyway.
