For the majority of sports gaming franchises, it is usually a one-horse race. Football and Hockey are conquered by EA, and unfortunately for 2K Sports, the MLB now only has The Show. 2K Sports has decided not to renew their contract for 2014, meaning no MLB 2K14 this year. This also means that MLB 14 The Show will be the only MLB baseball game released this year (sorry Xbox fans).
Earlier today a 2K Sports representative provided the following statement to Polygon: “We have decided not to renew our MLB 2K series for 2014. We are very proud of the achievements made by the MLB 2K team and look forward to their contributions to our future titles, including NBA 2K — our industry’s #1 rated and #1 selling basketball franchise.”
2K has removed all evidence of their MLB 2K franchise’s existence from their website.
