Nintendo won’t be the only one sidelining themselves from E3 this year. 2K Games, publisher of the recently released BioShock Infinite, has announced today that they will be skipping the Electronic Entertainment Expo this year entirely.
The revelation came through a post on their forums where the firm said that they are hard at work on their upcoming games and hence, won’t have a booth on the E3 show floor this year.
Here’s the full statement made by company spokesperson 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. Subscribe to our Twitch channel at twitch.tv/2K and on YouTube at youtube.com/2Kgames.
E3 is one of the biggest media events of the year where publishers and developers from all circles come under one roof to show off their newest projects. However, recent trends have seen to firms opting for a more direct approach with sites like YouTube and Twitch.
Nintendo clearly has seen better results with their frequent Nintendo Broadcasts. It’s also very cost-effective.
