2K Sports returns to making NFL video games

Recommended Posts



2K is getting back into the officially licensed football video game business, having struck a “multi-year partnership” with the NFL that covers “multiple future video games,” the parties announced Tuesday.

But don’t call it a comeback: The deal is for “non-simulation football game experiences,” according to a news release from 2K, so it doesn’t give the publisher the ability to revive its dearly departed NFL 2K franchise. Electronic Arts’ Madden NFL series will remain the only simulation football game in town — for now, at least.

The agreement between 2K and the NFL — for which the parties did not disclose financial terms — will produce “multiple video games centered on fun, approachable and social experiences,” said 2K president David Ismailer in a statement. That suggests that the publisher will focus on making games such as arcade-style sports titles in the vein of Saber Interactive’s NBA 2K Playgrounds 2.

Yeah can we get a NFL Playgrounds game please?
