2K has announced the addition of former Baylor Bears center player Isaiah Austin to the roster on NBA 2K15 on all platforms. Austin is now available as a playable free agent to celebrate his courage following his diagnosis of Marfan syndrome. Prior to the diagnosis, Austin had been a first-round prospect in this year's NBA draft.

Players can add Austin onto their team as a free agent, as well as in the MyTEAM mode. He can also be seen on this week's episode of NBA2K TV. To appear in the game, Austin underwent facial scanning at the NBA 2K studios.

NBA 2K15 launched on October 7 for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. The game was well-received in GameSpot's review, praised for its refined animations and customisation options offered in MyCareer mode. NBA 2K15 was the top-selling game for the month of October in the US, beating out Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and The Evil Within.
