Big year ahead as 2K turns five

2010 marks the fifth year of Take-Two’s label 2K Games.
The division was set up in 2005 and has produced smash hits such as BioShock, Carnival Games, Borderlands and the NBA 2K and NHL 2K series.

Speaking to MCV, 2K boss Christoph Hartmann explained how far the company has come and its overall transformation.

“Since 2K started five years ago we have changed from having quite a lot of smaller, licensed titles based on external brands to a powerhouse that release only a few – but critically and commercially successful – each year,” he said.

The publisher is celebrating its fifth birthday by building on its previous successes with a string of new titles.

“While we did a few promotions on Steam, we’re celebrating by doing what we love and what we feel we do best – creating high-quality games,” said Hartmann.

“2010 is shaping up to be a banner year. We kicked it off with BioShock 2 and MLB 2K10 early in the year and will launch Mafia II in August, Civilization V and NHL 2K11 in September, followed by Sid Meier’s Pirates! and NBA 2K11 in October.”
