    That might very well explain why NBA 2K19 was deeply discounted to about $3 last month. I remember EA having ads in Need For Speed games even dating back to NFS Underground 2 if not 1 but they were on billboards. Perhaps 2K is in a competition with EA for the title of the most hated video game company.

    Very shady stuff by 2K...the company that made Grand Theft Auto.

    Technically it’s not correct what he says. 2K is a subsidiary of Take Two Interactive and so is Rockstar.

    Apart from that 2K has nothing to do with Rockstar.

    Unless both get their marching orders from Take Two. With the micro transactions from both games, it's obvious that 2K and Rockstar aren't necessarily calling the shots on those money decisions.
