I'm not a baseball fan but I play NBA2K every-other year and still prefer to download updated rosters for NFL2K5 vs the annually atrocious Madden.

 

The 2K sports group is easily the most talented sports dev imo. I'm surprised to hear this, MLB games must be low in demand these days.

Not much of a gamer, but the games I do play are mostly all sports games, especially baseball and footblall and NASCAR.

NFL2K5 = Tecmo Bowl for the next generation.
Also the only sports game that actually kept me engaged for an entire season.
My Eagles beat KC that year for the Super Bowl.  TO had to of scored like 14 touchdowns. Gotta love the irony.

MLB2K wasn't a good game. The Show kills it every year. EA's old game, MVP Baseball (they had to stop producing because of a license agreement between MLB and 2K), was better than 2K as well. 

 

The news isn't all that surprising. Baseball games aren't nearly as popular as Madden, but 2K wasn't great. It had bright spots, but there were only a few.

Hm.

Like I said, I'm not a baseball fan, but the 2K sport's NFL and NBA titles have never disappointed me.

But yeah, I have now read that most people prefer Sony's The Show to MLB2K.

I think this is GREAT news.  2K spoiled the franchise.  Maybe EA will get the license back.  Say what you will about EA, but their baseball games were excellent.
