I know that 2K Games might be a little shook at NBA Live this year, but I never thought that NBA Playgrounds was also in their sights (jokes)! The arcade basketball game that more resembles NBA Jam is developed by Saber Interactive. It was originally published by Mad Dog Games, but the second iteration NBA Playgrounds 2 will now be published by 2K Games per our source. The new name will also be changed to NBA 2K Playgrounds 2.
Now I know that 2K Games has a lot of money and can provide more advertisement for the game, but I fear they will try and add some of their crazy business practices (like VC) to a fun arcade game. If they try that mess, this game is DOA! Take a look at the trailer below ICYMI.
