If you are an NFL lover, then you may be familiar with EA Madden series, which was the only game in town of how it sounds for ever. It is unfortunate that the EA series has skipped the switch completely, meaning that unless you have a PS4 or Xbox One, you have lost everything to good gridiron performance.
That wasn't always the case. Back in the & # 39; 90s and early & # 39; of the 00s, there were several opponents benefiting from an official NFL license, and that meant a lot of variations on all of the hardware platforms.
One of those excellent agencies NFL 2K series, which started life on the Sega Dreamcast. It went on until ESPN NFL 2K5 In 2004, EA later canceled an NFL license against any other company to use it – which is why we're at a point now, with no real rival in the Madden series (NFL 2K's first developer Visual Concepts can make a temporary return to the stadium with All-Pro Football 2K8, but can only use retired players and fictional teams).
Things are about to change, though. 2K Sports has announced that it has submitted a multi-year agreement with the NFL that will allow it to produce “more video games” based on sports, all backed by an official NFL license.
Before you get too excited, however, it is worth noting that this agreement covers only the "football simulation experience", which means the NFL 2K revival is not on the cards. Instead, the "many video games focusing on fun, accessible and social experiences" are the order of the day, indicating that we can see classic style titles as NBA 2K 2 Playgrounds
Games are not expected until 2021, and 2K Sports hasn't said what its internal studio is working on. Virtual ideas currently dominate the NBA 2K Franchise, and recently took over WWE license, by side effects.
