Award Winning Actor Michael B. Jordan to Star in NBA® 2K17’s MyCAREER

Partnership brings critically-acclaimed actor to award-winning
franchise’s dynamic single player mode

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–2K today announced that award winning actor Michael B.
Jordan will star alongside gamers in the all-new NBA® 2K17
MyCAREER storyline. Jordan’s resume boasts starring roles in critically
acclaimed films Creed and Fruitvale Station, as well as
compelling performances in television shows The Wire and Friday
Night Lights
. The addition pairs one of Hollywood’s most sought out
actors with one of the most dominant entertainment franchises,
solidifying NBA 2K as the ultimate intersection of sports
and pop culture.

NBA 2K17 was the perfect platform to connect with a new,
unique audience and challenge myself to expand my abilities as an
actor,” said Michael B. Jordan, who was most recently inducted into the
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in July 2016. “I’m humbled
at the opportunity to help influence a franchise that I’ve been a
passionate fan of since its first release.”

Jordan’s addition continues NBA 2K’s legacy of partnering
with entertainment’s biggest stars including legendary filmmaker Spike
Lee, who directed last year’s NBA 2K16 MyCAREER
experience. To create a genuine experience for fans in this year’s
title, Jordan immersed himself with development at NBA 2K’s
studios to capture his in-game likeness through dynamic motion-capture
technology, while undergoing hours of scene development and voiceover
audio recording.

“We saw tremendous success and engagement among our fans in last year’s
MyCAREER narrative, and wanted to deliver an even more tailored
experience by partnering with Michael B. Jordan,” said Alfie Brody, Vice
President of Marketing for NBA 2K. “Working with an actor
of Michael’s caliber represents a commitment to giving our fans only the
best and continuing to push ourselves as an entertainment platform.”

In NBA 2K17’s MyCAREER experience, Jordan stars as Justice
Young, a rising NBA star that teams up with your MyPlayer. Throughout
the game Justice acts as a friend and support system while navigating
the realities of playing in the NBA, with greater emphasis on in-game
choices that will directly impact outcomes on-and-off the court.

The NBA 2K17 Standard Edition will be available in both
digital and physical formats for $59.99 on Xbox One, Xbox 360,
PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer
entertainment systems, and Windows PC platforms on September 20. The NBA
2K17 Kobe Bryant Legend Edition
will be available in digital and
physical formats for $79.99 on Xbox One and PlayStation®4
system. Also available for pre-order is the NBA 2K17 Kobe Bryant
Legend Edition Gold
