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. Shortly after the WWE confirmed that, 2K Games began teasing a new announcement concerning the future of the WWE 2K series, saying it would share more details today.

WWE 2K21 has been cancelled and we all know why

WWE is a sports franchise that sees yearly game releases, but it looks like that schedule might be upended this year. WWE has apparently decided that this year's WWE 2K game, which would presumably be WWE 2K21, has been cancelled. Of course, if the WWE has decided to go in a different direction with this year's game, it wouldn't be surprising given the state that WWE 2K20 launched in.

Battleborn has been officially sentenced to death

Gearbox is currently basking in the success of Borderlands 3, but one of the company's other recent releases hasn't been doing so well. We're talking, of course, about Battleborn, which seemed doomed from the very beginning as it launched to lukewarm reception and had to compete with the behemoth that is Overwatch.

Borderlands 3 becomes 2K’s fastest selling game despite Epic exclusivity

2K Games and the folks at Gearbox Software have reason to celebrate today, as Borderlands 3 is officially a hit. Publisher 2K Games revealed today that Borderlands 3 is its fastest-selling game of all time, which probably won't come as much of a shocker to series fans.

The Lost Loot Machine will pick up loot that was left behind and allow you to access it later, but there are some things to keep in mind before you begin relying on it.

NBA 2K20 trailer is a tone deaf love letter to loot boxes

NBA 2K20 trailer is a tone deaf love letter to loot boxes

You'd think that given the unrest surrounding loot boxes, most publishers would want to avoid drawing attention to them. Take-Two is not one of those publishers. One of the new trailers for NBA 2K20, which is out next week, is somehow all about microtransactions. We're not really sure who at 2K Games thought this trailer was a good idea considering the heat that companies like EA have received for their characterization of loot boxes, but it really comes off as a tone deaf celebration of the thing gamers seem despise most at the moment.

NBA 2K19 is so realistic it now shows unskippable ads

NBA 2K19 is so realistic it now shows unskippable ads

Some games like Minecraft are perfectly fine with stylized graphics. Others, however, want to be as close to reality as possible. That's probably nowhere truer than with sports games, considering they pretty much try to recreate reality as faithfully as they can. It seem that 2K Games has gone over and beyond photorealistic graphics and is making NBA 2K19 as close to reality as possible, including the commercials.
