IGN on 2K8

Just a little blurb, but something...

Quote:
K Sports' Football Makes a Comeback
This isn't much of a prediction, as Mr. Jon Robinson already broke the story, it's more of a reaffirmation (we also predicted this game last year). As we understand it, 2K Games will bring football back to the sports market, only in a very different way than before. Since EA owns the NFL, NFL Players license, the NCAA Football license, the Canadian Football License, the Official Poland Football license, and pretty much any license under the sun related to football, Visual Concepts has to do something pretty drastic to make a gridiron game. So, somewhat like Acclaim's Wrestling Legends, the former football developer will pick select legends licenses, compile them into a next-gen football game, and make football viable again. Expect an announcement this spring and the game to hit the shelves this fall.

Re: IGN on 2K8

It's a reaffirmation, not a prediction

Fortunately, I have a boatload of games to keep me occupied till fall.
Once Mass Effect comes out, I'll talk to you guys in a few months

Re: IGN on 2K8

Instead of using Legends, why not make a generic football game with fake teams and players? How many players and teams can you really have from just Legends? Can they have 31 teams filled with legendary players? I just don't know how they are going to do this? I hope they make a game that it is fully customizable...

Because you need to have a selling point for the game.

And just because there's Legends doesn't mean there won't be some sort of customization.......

they are most likely gonna have like a few legends on each team and then fill the rest of the roster with made up players

Re: IGN on 2K8

I think most of us is just soooo tired of speculation. There are too many games out to worry about one possible football game.

That's my guess- face it, they need something recognizable to draw in gamers. Joe Montana etc. on the cover will go a long way towards establishing it.

I just have to ignore rumors and get surprised one day It'll make time pass quicker.
