If it’s NBA, 2K want to be involved. Today they are pushing forward into the basketball realms once more with a partnership with Saber Interactive that will see NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 become a reality.
Growing their NBA video game portfolio, 2K will be the publisher of Saber Interactive’s NBA 2K Playgrounds 2. Whilst the title may be a bit of a mouthful, with 2K providing their NBA expertise, and Saber being able to see the series grow after the first edition of NBA Playgrounds, fans of basketball should be left excited at the prospect of a new over-the-top two-on-two basketball experience… if only because it’ll complement the best-selling NBA 2K simulation franchise and expand 2K’s footprint in the basketball video game space.
“The original NBA Playgrounds was a fantastic throwback to the glory days of arcade-action sports,” said Greg Thomas, President, Visual Concepts. “The new NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will step up this energy and attitude big time – with a bit of added NBA 2K flair – giving fans of both franchises an exciting new way to game with friends around the world.”
“No one is more committed to bringing fans a great basketball experience than 2K. We can’t wait to share more on how we’re teaming up to make NBA 2K Playgrounds 2’s incredible arcade action bigger and better than ever for players,” said Saber CEO Matt Karch.
NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will be released this Fall on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC. Keep an eye out for it!
