2K Sports has revealed the official cover art for NBA 2K11, which features Michael Jordan on the cover. The cover features a three-panel, iconic image of Jordan. 2K Sports says the cover is a departure from previous NBA 2K titles to reflect the "significance of having the greatest player of all time grace the cover." NBA 2K11 is not yet rated by the ESRB and will be available October 5, 2010. The website for the game can be found here.
"We knew as soon as we signed Jordan that we needed to do something special for the cover," said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. "This could possibly be the most highly anticipated cover art in the history of sports games and we think the image we came up with delivers on every front. I think fans will be pleasantly surprised at how Jordan is actually used in game, as NBA 2K11 will pay homage to 'His Airness' in many ways, but the cover art represented our first chance to stop and honor him along the way."
Michael Jordan says, "It's exciting to see it all come together. I am looking forward to seeing the final product, but my kids might have to give me some lessons."
