2K is one of the biggest publishers of sports titles, with the company being well-known worldwide for the NBA 2K series. Now, 2K games is beefing up its sports lineup thanks to a partnership with the National Football League (NFL).
2K and the NFL’s partnership is a multiyear endeavor, and it includes the creation of multiple feature American Football games. This partnership marks the return of football themed games to 2K’s stable of sports titles and IP.
“The NFL is one of the most successful sports brands in the world, known for creating incredible entertainment for fans,” said David Ismailer, President of 2K. “We’re thrilled to be back in business with the NFL in a partnership that will span multiple video games centered on fun, approachable and social experiences. It’s exciting to bring together 2K’s expertise in creating award-winning sports games with the NFL’s renowned status as a world-class entertainment and sports organization.”
This partnership all but confirms that there will be an NFL 2K game coming very soon, maybe even in 2021. Given the popularity of NBA 2K, as well as 2K’s other sports titles, an NFL game from the developer will likely be a big hit considering how massive the NFL fanbase is.
