2K gets in on NFL games

Postby [Q] on Thu Mar 12, 2020 6:17 am

EA's exclusive deal with the NFL is ending and it looks like 2K is going to make an arcade-style game for the time being before challenging the entrenched but stagnant Madden series. Could be an interesting parallel to EA trying to take back marketshare of the NBA market.

For the first time in over 15 years, "Madden" is getting some competition in the world of football video games.

The NFL revealed on Tuesday morning that it's ending its years-long exclusivity deal with Electronic Arts on football games. "Madden" will continue to be produced in partnership with the NFL, but the NFL is also working with 2K Sports — the company behind the smash-hit "NBA 2K" franchise.

That new arrangement encompasses a "multi-year" deal that includes "multiple future video games" — the first of which is expected to arrive next year, in 2021.

EA's still got the exclusive rights to the sim style apparently, so it's not exactly what football gamers have been clamouring for. Still big news, of course.
