2K Sports Inks Deal With NFL

by Ryan SmithApril 1, 2012

After years of out cries from fans around the world, and countless YouTube videos comparing the latest Madden releases to NFL 2K5, it seems your voice has been heard. After weeks of negotiations, the NFL has finally agreed to a 10 year deal granting 2K Sports the rights to produce new titles.

While Madden is still a hot seller in the video game world, and often one of the most anticipated titles each year, fans and critics agree that the series has become somewhat stagnant since the NFL pulled their license from 2K Sports.  Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K Sports, is looking to reclaim their throne on which Madden sits.

[quote]”It’s an honor for 2K Sports to not only have what is considered by many the best football ever made, but this new deal is an even bigger blessing that we can now continue to build upon those formulas and deliver a game that will knock the wind out of you.”[/quote]

While the final details are still being ironed out, fans can expect NFL 2K14 next Summer.

At the age of 3, Ryan received an NES from a relative and the rest is history. Sneaking up past his bed time to play Ninja Gaiden or Super Mario Bros was a common practice for him, and often caught too. Wasting his youth away on the SNES or Genesis, slamming controllers, and wishing death upon his video game foes. Many a nights Ryan stayed awake to defeat that final boss. There was nothing more rewarding. As the PlayStation and N64 came around, his love for video games increased until it inevitably became one of his passions. Now days, much of his free time is consumed by playing on Xbox Live with friends. Here on The Game Fanatics as the Reviews Editor, Ryan gets to share his passion of videos games with all of you! There's nothing more rewarding than that. /win
