2K’s Upcoming Soccer Video games Will Function Actual-Life NFL Athletes Due to New Deal

2K has been spinning up its sports activities division to make soccer video games, and it is bought some actual warmth behind it. Yesterday, 2K Sports activities confirmed it has entered a brand new partnership with the NFL Gamers Affiliation and OneTeam Companions for its upcoming slate of soccer video games.

By way of this deal, 2K Sports activities will have the ability to use the title, likeness, picture, and variety of over 2,000 present NFL gamers in its a number of upcoming soccer video games. The size of the deal has not been specified.

Earlier this yr, 2K Sports activities introduced it could be making football games once again by way of a brand new partnership with the NFL. For a very long time, Digital Arts has had digital soccer on lockdown with its Madden sequence, however 2K’s return will differ in a notable approach: it won’t be a simulation sport, a style for which EA stays the NFL’s sole associate.

So whereas Madden will remain the sole sim in town, 2K now has each the league and participant licenses it might want to begin crafting its lineup of soccer video games. What that can appear to be remains to be unclear; with simulation off the desk, hopes appear to be that 2K will enterprise extra into the arcade territory, although that might vary anyplace from Tremendous Mega Baseball to NFL Blitz.

“We’re thrilled to be working with the NFLPA and OneTeam to deliver the largest and finest stars in soccer to the video games we’re engaged on,” stated 2K President David Ismailer in a press launch. “We need to give followers experiences which can be genuine, memorable and enjoyable, and having a roster of real-life sports activities heroes by way of the Gamers Affiliation and OneTeam is a big a part of delivering on that promise.”

It looks like the precise time to try to steal away Madden’s viewers share, or at the least siphon off a few of it. Final yr’s model was not a series high, with this yr’s Madden Bowl exemplifying some of those issues fairly nicely.

Madden NFL 21 is due out this coming month on Aug. 28, 2020, and it is already bought next-gen plans within the works. It’s going to be a bit earlier than we see what 2K plans in response—2K’s slate will not begin rolling out till at the least April 2021—however hopefully it is one thing that can shake up the at the moment Madden-dominated area of digital soccer.
