2K Announces NFL 2K Games will Return in 2021

NFL 2K

The NFL and 2K games have officially announced that they have reached a deal to bring back the popular games. The company is aiming to release the game in 2021 at the earliest. This will be the first non-Madden NFL title since NFL 2K5, which was released in 2004.

Video game and pop culture news outlet IGN announced the news via Twitter on Tuesday.

EA Sports and the Madden franchise still have the rights to a “high-end simulation” football game. 2K stated in their press release that the game will include many non-simulation experiences. However, it is unclear the exact definition of what entails a simulation and what the 2K franchise will have to do differently than Madden.

These “non-simulation experiences” may trend towards more casual gamers, but, again, little is known about what the definition is or may change to be with this new deal between the league and 2K. Either way, a new challenger in the NFL games market is welcome, as Madden and EA have had a monopoly for close to 16 years.

The NFL “2K21” will likely come out next year.
