Today we're learning a little bit more about Marvel's Midnight Suns, thanks to a pair of new trailers.

WWE 2K22 finally gets a release date, but fans may not be happy

It's been a while since we last heard from the WWE 2K series, and it seems it'll still be a while yet. 2K Games has finally announced the release date for WWE 2K22, but unfortunately, it's not going to be the release date most fans had in mind. That's because WWE 2K22 isn't launching this year as originally expected.

2K Games today announced NBA 2K22, the next installment of the long-running sports franchise.

For the first time this year, a WNBA player will be on one of the covers of NBA 2K22, but sadly, that edition will see only limited availability.

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).

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.
