Tiger Woods is coming back to games after striking deal with 2K

2K made a couple of big announcements today, and they're all about golf. For starters, 2K Games has purchased HB Studios, the developer behind PGA Tour 2K21 and The Golf Club, and it expects the deal to close before the end of the current calendar quarter (which wraps up at the end of March). The second announcement is a lot bigger, as 2K Games and Tiger Woods have penned a long-term exclusivity deal for Woods' name and likeness.

Take Two CEO says you’re ‘ready’ to pay more for games

Take Two CEO says you’re ‘ready’ to pay more for games

With the arrival of this new generation of games consoles comes a renewed debate on the cost of games. Most AAA games cost $60 at retail, and it's been that way for some time. Of the publishers who are eyeing a jump to $70 retail games, Take Two has been one of the most aggressive and visible, wasting little time in pricing NBA 2K21 at $70 and making cross-generation upgrades for the game only available in a more expensive edition.

NBA 2K21 The City gives the game an MMORPG spin

NBA 2K21 The City gives the game an MMORPG spin

The next-gen consoles launching in just a few days' time offer new hardware that is just begging to be overused and abused. Most of the time, developers flaunt richer graphics and audio that these technologies enable but they also open games up to more content as well. Case in point is NBA 2K21's new The City mode, which pretty much builds a virtual city around basketball. Beyond matches between players, however, the next-gen City also gives players a lot more to do even when they're not playing basketball.

2K Games describes NBA 2K21 unskippable ad as a bug

2K Games describes NBA 2K21 unskippable ad as a bug

With gaming on consoles, PCs, and even mobile becoming an even more lucrative industry, it's really no surprise that brands see it as the next fertile land for advertising revenue. Some might have even come to accept that as a sad fact of life, just like web ads, especially on free to play titles. But when you're paying dozens of dollars, the last thing you want is to be interrupted by an ad you can't escape from. That's the surprising situation NBA 2K21 players found themselves in and, according to the game's publisher, it was simply an honest error.

NBA 2K21 sneaks in unskippable ads because loot boxes aren’t enough

NBA 2K21 sneaks in unskippable ads because loot boxes aren’t enough

NBA 2K21 is coming under fire today for playing unskippable ads that players have to watch during loading screens. Ads in games are nothing new, but generally we only see them in free-to-play mobile titles. The difference, of course, is that NBA 2K21 is a game that costs $60 upfront, and even more if you want to get a next-gen upgrade, which means that people probably aren't going to be too fond of these ads.

Take Two pulls back from more expensive Xbox Series X and PS5 games

Take Two pulls back from more expensive Xbox Series X and PS5 games

Heading into the next-generation of game consoles, one of the big question marks is price - not just the prices of the consoles themselves, which Sony and Microsoft have both conveniently avoided talking about thus far, but also the prices of the games made for these machines. Several weeks ago, we got an indication that game prices might be on the rise in the next generation thanks to Take Two and NBA 2K21, which will be priced at $70 on both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

Mafia: Trilogy now official with remakes and remasters galore

Last week, 2K Games teased the impending reveal of Mafia: Trilogy. At the time, most of us assumed that this was going to be a remaster of the first three Mafia games, and it turns out that we were correct - for the most part, at least. Seeing as the Mafia trilogy spans three different console generations, Mafia II is only game of the bunch that's actually being remastered, strictly speaking.

Today, we finally know: 2K is remastering the Mafia trilogy and releasing it on modern platforms.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds revealed as WWE 2K21 gets officially cancelled

Last week, the WWE announced that there wouldn't be a WWE 2K game released this year. The organization didn't give a reason why, but one doesn't have to wonder too much given the critical and fan response to WWE 2K20.
