2K Sports, Inc. is a division of 2K Games that develops and publishes sports video games. It comprises a single development studio, Visual Concepts, which was purchased from Sega in 2005 after Sega Sports shut down. 2K Sports mainly develops and publishes American sports video games; such as NBA 2K series, the NHL 2K series and the WWE 2K series. It previously produced the MLB 2K series. In January 2005, Take-Two Interactive acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of Visual Concepts and its wholly owned subsidiary, Kush Games, the developers of some of the companys sports titles, and certain intellectual property rights associated with these products from Sega for $24 million USD. 2K Sports, which in late 2004 purchased development studio Indie Built from Microsoft Game Studios, closed down the Indie Built studio in April 2006. Indie Built was known for its work on the Amped, Links, and Top Spin series. However, 2K Sports still owns the rights to these intellectual properties. 2K Sports has the exclusive third-party rights to produce Major League Baseball and World Poker Tour games.
