Earlier today, 2K Sports announced not only is MLB 2K13 alive and well, but also coming to PS3 and Xbox 3260 March 5.
Until today, the future of the MLB 2K series remained up in the air. The exclusive third-party rights 2K Sports parent company Take-Two held to publish licensed baseball games expired last year. About the same time, a 2K Sports spokesperson told Kotaku that MLB 2k12 would be the last.
Today’s press release, of course, proves otherwise.
“We’d like to thank our league partners for their support in helping us reach an agreement to bring back MLB 2K,” Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports, says in the press release. “We know fans are extremely passionate about the MLB 2K series and the Perfect Game Challenge.”
As the image above—taken from the box art—indicates, Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price has been chosen to grace the game’s cover. No doubt for his ability to throw lightning-charged pitches like some modern Greek demigod.
