NBA 2K22 Release Time
What time does NBA 2K22 come out?
That depends on where you live - sort of. NBA 2K22's official release date is September 10, which means you get access to it the minute after 11:59 p.m. September 9.
However, there's a slight wrinkle. In what's likely a glitch of some kind, New Zealand already has access to NBA 2K22, and it's prompting people to take extreme measures just to play the game early.
Which we absolutely don't recommend doing. It's not confirmed, but some reports say changing the time and location can damage the system.
