NFL 2K13 News Post


Go Fanboy is reporting that 2K Sports has already approached the NFL about a licensing deal. Will it happen? Will we see NFL 2K13?

Quote:
"It looks like everything we had been hearing over the last year and half has turned out to be true as word is now coming out that Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of 2K Sports, has approached the NFL about a licensing deal for the 2013 NFL season. It was rumored last month that the NFLPA, the official association representing players of the National Football League, were already in preliminary talks.

While nothing solid has been worked out, all the pieces are falling into place. Take-Two has sold of several major assets - including their mega-distributor JOAG in Cincinnati, Ohio in order to raise capital. We'll keep you updated as the details emerge."

Such a shame the NFL loves exclusive licenses. Free them up, NFL!!! How legit is this source, though?

My goodness, they need to just send them a copy of NBA 2K 11, and tell them that "we can do this to NFL Football."

Great news! Madden is beloved only b/c it has the exclusive NFL rights. I look forward to a realistic football sim with the polish of NBA2K11.

And fans want them to get it. I hope there not going for an exclusive license but rather them than anyone else. The NFL should go with 2k but I think Goodell will only care about $$$$.

With new heads of the NFL and NFLPA, i hope they go the david stern route.

If both EA and 2k want to ante up for a license, let them both have it. Come on NFL, let us consumers have that competition!

I really hope that 2K11 will out sell Madden 11. That is the only chance that the NFL will listen.

Not likely as 2k basketball has never come close to Madden in sales.

A couple things work in 2ks Favor here:
- The recent American Needle ruling. The NFL may relax there exclusive deals as a result.
- NBA 2k Owns the NBA Market
- 2K Could argue that less titles means they could devote more man power towards the NFL game.

If the NFL goes with Exclusivity again, it stays with EA. But I do not think that it is totally out of the question that 2K would be allowed to make a game, Madden sales have dipped so what does the NFL have to lose? I actually have a pretty good feeling about this, I think 2K will make a NFL game soon ...

it's past due. ea had their shot and more than proved that they couldn't handle it.

The fact that the NFL is agreeing to meet with 2k is an encouraging sign. I doubt seriously that the NFL will cut its ties with the Madden franchise, so if they grant a license to 2k, it's more likely to be in addition to EA instead of in lieu of.

2k is hungry. EA is fat, happy, and content.

2k's not afraid to appeal to the sim player. EA's made no secret of appealing to the casual audience.

Will be interesting.

we can only hope and pray


Videogame football is still so far away from where it should be right now

Im not a basketball fan but I will buy nba 2k11 not just to support 2k but because from everything Ive seen and heard its just a quality sports game with complete modes, great animations, and great gameplay, and I can enjoy that on any sports title.
 
# 15 michapop9 @ 10/05/10 06:20 PM
Im a huge 2k supporter, with that being said do not take away the license from EA or make it exclusive, let 2k and EA go at it, only then we will see the potential of videogame football realized.

First NBA 2K11 release, then this?? Great day. Although I have always prefered Madden, they have really really lost me this year. I don't want an exclusive license period, but EA had their shot. At the same time, EA CAN'T lose Madden, so i hope an exclusive license between EA and 2K are in the works.

They will listen to whoever has the most money.

This needs to happen asap.

I hope they get an answer soon so they could have two cycles for 2k13.
