2K Sports confirmed that NBA 2K14 is officially coming October 1st for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.  In addition, the game will also make its next-gen debut later in the year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Though its new features haven't been announced, we do know one thing – the Miami Heat's LeBron James will be on the cover, and will also be the focus of a special pre-order King James Bonus Pack that includes an additional 10,000 credits in virtual currency, a LeBron Signature Skill for MyPlayer, and extra content for the new Path To Greatness mode.

“My friends, family, and fans all know how much I love NBA 2K. I remember, as a kid, getting so excited for the game to come out and see who was on the cover and it's amazing to be a part of this great tradition,” said James. "I love partnerships and opportunities that connect me directly with fans. I know from my own experience and now watching my own kids, NBA 2K is among the coolest and purest ways for fans to connect to the NBA. I love being a part of it.”
