Game developer and publisher 2K Games, along with the National Football League, have announced a partnership that will see 2K return to creating football-themed video games with the NFL license for the first time since 2004.





Under the agreement, 2K will create non-simulation football game experiences. Jason Argent, Senior Vice President of Sports Strategy and Licensing at 2K, describes it as "a deep, fun and very authentic product offering. They're not (a) very traditional simulation product".

The simulation rights are currently exclusively owned by Electronic Arts, who have been creating the Madden NFL game franchise since 1988. According to a source, those rights are up at the end of the 2021 NFL season. 2K, along with other companies, has expressed interest in acquiring those rights.

If someone can make an NFL “non-simulation” game that is closer to Madden/2K from the late 90s than it is to NFL Blitz - I’m all in. 


Also, does this mean EA will start making the game a sim? Patrick Mahomes throwing 80 yards from the back of the endzone with no momentum doesn't scream sim to me.
