2K Sports is the publisher of some of the best American sports games like NBA 2K, The Golf Club and WWE 2K 2019. The video game publisher is a subsidiary of 2K Games.
If you have a 2K Sports account, you have a platform through which you can buy a variety of 2K products and receive newsletter subscriptions. You can also access official 2K websites through the account.
It is important to note that 2K accounts are not the same as my2K accounts. The 2K account system is an upgrade of the my2K account system. All existing my2K accounts should be upgraded to 2K accounts.
Recovering a 2K Sports account includes several scenarios which all involve you having an account but not being able to use the account. It can also include finding out that your 2K account has expired when you try and log in.
Email address not verified
One reason you can be locked out of your account is if the email address associated with your 2K sports account is not verified. To verify the email address, open the email and click the link in the verification email sent by 2K Sports.
If you have received several verification emails, use the most recent email as the links in the older messages will not be valid.
If you do not receive the verification email, check your spam folder for the email. If it is not there, go back to the 'Missing Verification' link in the 2K Sports website and enter your email address. 2K Sports will immediately send you a verification email.
You may try to log in to your 2K account but the account keeps responding that your log-in credentials are invalid. In such a scenario, the best thing to do is reset your password.
To reset your account password, follow these steps:
1. Open the 2K Sports website
2. Click the Password Reset button on the sign in page
3. Input your email address ad click 'Send Password'
4. Open your email address and open the password reset email from 2K Sports
5. Click the link in the email and proceed to reset your password
