It is acquired 4 video games deliberate for this yr, however within the following two years it is planning for a complete of 19 core releases, together with seven sports activities simulation video games and 4 free-to-play.
This was specified by the corporate’s quarterly earnings immediately, throughout which the writer additionally outlined the 4 releases coming this yr: WWE 2K22, NBA 2K22, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, and a fourth sport from 2K that will likely be introduced later this month.
