E3 06: 2K Sports heads back to rink, courts
First screens of 2K7 editions of NBA, College Hoops, NHL unveiled; more details, including platforms, expected next week.
With no messy labor negotiations, tricky salary-cap issues, or other player-versus-owner arguments, sports on the digital front, unlike their professional real-world counterparts, can continue on unabated barring an exclusive license. It should come to no one's surprise, then, that 2K Sports is bringing back its fall lineup for another round of hoops and hockey.
The sports arm of Take-Two Interactive today released the first screenshots for NHL 2K7, NBA 2K7, and College Hoops 2K7. No details on any of the games have been released, but more information should be available next week at E3.
2K has not announced which platforms the games are headed for, but it should be noted that all three games are available in their 2K6 incarnations for the Xbox 360, with NBA 2K6 and NHL 2K6 ready at launch.
