As posted on their official blog, it was announced that 2K Games won’t be at this year’s E3 event. Instead, they will be announcing their next-gen titles through their own events. As stated by 2K’s Ronnie Singh:

At 2K, we’re excited for the new opportunities coming with the next generation of hardware, and are hard at work preparing our announced titles for release.

While 2K will not have a booth on the show floor at this year’s E3 conference, we will have a lot of great news coming your way this spring. Our slate of titles coming this year include highly anticipated games like Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Brave New World, XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iOS, more content for Borderlands 2, as well as WWE 2K14 and NBA 2K14.

Stay tuned for our live gameplay and event broadcasts to see the latest gameplay from our upcoming titles.

2K Games: What Lies Ahead

The company’s “event broadcast” is more likely akin to Nintendo Direct livestreams, which is becoming a popular way for game publishers to reach out to gamers without the need for expensive trade events.

What 2K Games has lined up is yet to be known. That’s because aside from the mentioned titles, nothing else were scheduled. No next-gen announcements were made either.

Prior to this, Nintendo announced last week that they won’t be having their usual E3 press conference this year. However, their giant-sized booth will be seen in the event.
