MLB 2K11 Developer Call

On February 23rd 2K Sports held a call with their development and marketing team to give us the scoop on MLB 2K11. This year they are focused was the depth of the core of the game as well as enhancing the realism of the franchise simulators (realistic stats and outcomes based on ratings). In the past they have made improvements to the hitting and pitching but this year a big focus was fielding. So superstar fielders will look like superstars in the field; I’m guessing this change was made especially because of Franklin Gutierrez. The only big change in the Million Dollar Challenge is the entry age was moved from 18 to 13 and the first opportunity to win is April 1st. They don’t expect this year’s winner to have as easy as a time as last year due to fielders not being as fast and the possibility of more errors. They also feel that there will be more walk committed by the user and borderline pitches won’t automatically be strikes but more 50-50. My favorite section, My Player, doesn’t receive any new features, but does get an overall polishing like much of the game. You can also look forward to 2K’s new player models which all players will get a makeover with. You can look for MLB 2K to launch March 8.
