2K Games will not have a booth on the show floor at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo this summer, the publisher has announced on its website.

"At 2K, we're excited for the new opportunities coming with the next generation of hardware, and are hard at work preparing our announced titles for release," the company explained.

"While 2K will not have a booth on the show floor at this year's E3 conference, we will have a lot of great news coming your way this spring," the statement continues.

2K's slate of upcoming titles includes the Brave New World expansion for Civilization V, XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iOS, WWE 14, NBA 2K14, and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.

Though 2K Games will not have a presence on the E3 2013 show floor, parent company Take-Two Interactive will hold its typical business meetings at the event.

"We are going to have a meeting room in the upper concourse level and we'll be doing some business meetings as we usually do," a Take-Two spokesperson confirmed with Joystiq. "2K is not participating."

It is unclear if Rockstar Games will participate in E3 2013. The label typically does not attend the show. Grand Theft Auto V launches on September 17 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Earlier this week, Nintendo announced that it would not host a major presentation at E3 2013 in favor of smaller events to showcase new titles.

The Entertainment Software Association--the group responsible for organizing E3--is seeking $190,000 from bankrupt publisher THQ for money owed over booth space reserved for the show.
