PostSubject: Report: 2K Sports Might Be Bringing Back College Basketball, But Not How You Might Expect   Tue Jul 21, 2015 4:08 pm

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2015/07/21/report-2k-sports-might-be-bringing-back-college-basketball.aspx

Today, ESPN Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell stated on his Twitter that 2K Sports has obtained the licenses for at least 10 college basketball teams and will have some sort of college basketball offering for players.

Recently, speculation occurred that 2K Sports had something in the works after Operation Sports was able to confirm licensing for a set of teams using the The Collegiate Licensing Company's database (which handles most licensing for NCAA products). Unfortunately, after the report gained some traction, 2K no longer appears using the search for any of the teams it was previously listed under (Arizona, Arizona State, Connecticut, Georgetown, Kansas, Louisville, Michigan, Texas, UCLA, Villanova and Wisconsin.) However, a recent leaked achievement list for NBA 2K16 also pointed to some involvement with college teams.

2K has indeed gotten the licenses to at least 10 college teams & will have college basketball.

Rovell's report today only adds more credence to the possibility that 2K will bring back college basketball. Whether this is just for a part of Visual Concept's NBA 2K series or a brand new college basketball game remains to be seen. Although a new report by Pastapadre seems to indicate that it's NBA 2k16 related.

2K Sports last published its NCCA series in 2008. EA Sports stopped soon after in 2009. In recent days, a $60 million settlement had been finalized due to EA and The Collegiate Licensing Corporation improperly using players' likeness and not compensating them for such across its various college franchises.

Rovell also revealed on Twitter that despite rumors to the contrary, EA is unlikely to return with a college football game.

Told rumors of EA returning with a licensed college football game in the very near future are not accurate.

Heard about this a few days ago. Can't wait for MyCareer mode now. And Spike Lee is directing the storyline so that's another plus. YO

Full details on NBA 2K16, including the MyCareer.



Apparently you start in high school, then pick a college, then make it to the NBA. This game (and revamped career mode) sounds GREAT. clap clap clap
