“Great games come from the passion of a team driven by the pursuit of quality and the empowerment of an independent studio model,” said Condrey on the unveiling of the new 2K studio. “2K’s studios have creative and technical autonomy, backed by a world-class infrastructure of support, and that offers the perfect recipe to build a new studio and craft experiences that will lead the next generation of gaming for fans everywhere.”
