Enough Conspiracy Theories, Let's Talk Legit Expectations

This board has been just pounded with speculation that, with the limited info we have now, is very easily disproven.

Let's recap what we actually know about 2K's next football game:
  • NFL offerings will span multiple video games centered on fun, approachable, and social experiences
  • The games will be non-simulation football game experiences
  • The market is for casual gamers
  • 2K has the rights to the NFLPA and the NFL itself

Since we know these titles will be non-simulation and focused on casual, approachable, social experiences featuring real players and uniforms, we can't rule out that it could be the following types:
  • Flag Football
  • Lego
  • MyTeam Style (with created players and teams)
  • Playgrounds
  • Street


In my opinion, these are the most realistic paths forward. Those expecting an APF type game or an 11 on 11 sim are setting themselves up for a huge disappointment.

Probably a Playgrounds type game, but a MyTeam type of game wouldn't be that surprising either.

I'm not expecting it to be 11v11 either way, but who knows what the contract language deems as simulation.

^^ True (updated the OP).

I honestly would be celebrating if it was either NFL Street-esque or a MyTeam type of game. Those are my preferred choices.

Re: Enough Conspiracy Theories, Let's Talk Legit Expectations

Okay I had never even thought that a flag football video game was a possibility but I can't stop laughing about the idea now. To be clear, I am not expecting 2K to make a flag football game, I am just tickled by the thought lol.

As to legit expectations? Looking at Grand Theft Auto V and every recent NBA 2K game, I expect micro-transactions.

I demand a “Fight for the flag” button mashing mini game in the first version of this game.

Re: Enough Conspiracy Theories, Let's Talk Legit Expectations

In one of the original press releases didn't a spokesperson for Take - Two or 2K also mention something about "authenticity & realism" too?

Basically, none of us (either pessimists or optimists) have a damn clue what they have in store.

All we know is that it can't be "simulation" but with no indication what that even entails.

Again, it can fall into a category as shallow as NFL Playgrounds (very possible, but with limited appeal, IMO) to something more ambitious that takes elements of APF (some gameplay & some team creation), yet in an 'arcade' styling to not infringe on the EA + NFL deal.

They'll need to do something fun, engaging, sustainable & with high replayability to make this a success, IMO. There is a clear and obvious reason why 'arcade' - style titles have died off throughout the last few decades.

And clearly, microtransactions will play a part in this upcoming title. The bigger question is how will that effect offline players & people who don't spend $100's of dollars in My(Whatever) features.
