2K May Be Working on Golf Game

Posted June 9th, 2013 at 9:45 pm


2K Sports may have a golf game in development based on the recent registration of a domain by Take Two. The domain, 2KGolfLinks.com, was registered last month and spotted first on Twitter before reaching NeoGAF.

Though Take Two has made past statements regarding their desire to avoid paying for licenses – which was of course followed by obtaining the WWE license and then re-upping MLB 2K for a year – with golf there is no need for an expensive payout rather smaller negotiations taking place on an individual basis for courses, gear, and any professional golfers.

Should this be a console game it would be the perfect time to enter the market with the Tiger Woods series taking a year off in 2014. However it’s important not to jump to that conclusion as it could also be a social or mobile project.

    bring back Ben Hogan.

    This could be the fact that 2K owns the Links the rights to the links series. Chances are that they simply renewed the license to the sites for safety reasons.

    30 seconds of research…and I did it for free.

      But did they own those domains before? And if not, why now?

      It’s certainly worth at least noting.

    To go with the domain name, I’m pretty sure they bought the Links brand when they got Amped & Top Spin from Microsoft.

    Either way, I hope this is true. I’d love to see another golf game on the market. I enjoy the Tiger Woods games, but Links 2004 on the original Xbox is still easily my favourite.

    Links was a great golf game…was disappointed when they stopped releasing it. I would love to see 2k come out with a golf game for the consoles.

    THIS over football? Whatever, 2K.

      You say that like they can just up & make a new football game, which isn’t really an option unless something happens that causes EA to lose their exclusive NFL license.

        “You say that like they can just up & make a new football game”

        I think you’ve read enough of my posts to know that I’m not some naive dudebro who thinks a football game can just be made overnight. And you say this as if 2K doesn’t already have a mature engine sitting on the shelf.

        “which isn’t really an option unless something happens that causes EA to lose their exclusive NFL license.”

        Remember All Pro Football? You don’t need an NFL license to make a football game.

        APF didn’t sell well because it was light on features and was poorly conceptualized, but a stronger effort certainly would’ve made a mark and it still can. I’m fairly confident that a better, more well thought-out version of APF would outsell any Golf game 2K would create.

        They Can make a college football game, they just have be willing to pay for the license

    Who cares about a boring ass Golf game? 2K should be working on a FOOTBALL & BOXING game.

    • Iown You

      Football for sure.

  • Patrick

    so we get two golf games, but no ncaa basketball games?

    If 2K does bring out a golf game, they have to get a lot more golfers on the game. For me, that’s the biggest problem with the Woods games; having 25 or so professional golfers is weak in this age. I understand the costs involved, but I’d be much more interested if I could play with more than two dozen professionals. Tennis games have suffered in the same capacity when it comes to number of professional players involved and it takes part of the lure of the game away for me.
