It has been confirmed that filmmaker Spike Lee will be helping create MyCareer mode in NBA 2K16, and the game’s three cover stars have also been revealed.

A few months ago, some leaked images suggested that Lee would be helping create the upcoming game’s MyCareer mode, but now Lee has confirmed that information himself. Speaking with USA Today, he explained that he will be both writing and directing the game mode.

We follow a kid through the trials and tribulations of being a top high school player and the decisions he has to make.

Lee went on to say that around nine hours of “cinematic narrative” has already been captured by 2K Games, which, according to 2K’s spokesperson Ryan Peters, will translate into around 12 hours of story content. Peters then talked about Lee’s involvement:

We just told Spike, ‘You transform the narrative, and we’ll change that into digital polygons. And he did that, bringing a protagonist and antagonist to the story.

It has also been revealed that basketball stars Stephen Curry, James Harden, and Anthony Davis will be on the cover of NBA 2K16 when it releases on September 29 on PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC.
