"But it wasn’t before long that the XFL would fold, forcing McMahon and NBC to lose a lot of money.Flash forward almost 20 years later…
Now, after two decades, the XFL is preparing to make its triumphant return. And although things didn’t work out the first time, McMahon and his group of investors don’t foresee the same mistakes happening again."
But it will fail again and it's hilarious they don't realize that. People don't like football that much. They like their NFL team and playing fantasy football and that's it.* Even if an XFL game has the best football gameplay of all time it won't matter in terms of sales.

It really depends how you quantify success. AAF wasn't a failure as far as interest went, it was in a flawed state financially.

XFL won't have that problem, at least initially.

2k should make another football game that would include squads from defunct leagues such as USFL, WFL, AAF, UFL and new XFL.

The problem is the costs to make the game. No one is investing money unless they know they can make a profit on this game or at least make a name to sell other games.

You would think by now with all the engines out there, they just need to change how the players interact and let the physics happen. It is going to take a change to get 2k back.

Better tech to just scan every game played, capture the plays, motion capture, player ratings, etc. Then feed all the info into the engines for physics, lighting, sound, etc. With the GPS tracking starting, maybe it won't be too far off.

2K just needs to make it for XFL but also make it fully customizable (sort of like ncaa 14) and it could give madden a run for it's money since there is zero customization in that game. football gamers are craving for that at this point.....especially with what you can do in NBA 2K.

I would have so much fun with a game like this. Given the legal limbo the rights to team names, logos and uniforms must be in, it will never happen.
