News: The souped up sluggers of The Bigs are back on the PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360.
When The Bigs was first announced, Major League Baseball was in the middle of the Mitchell investigation into steroid use in the sport. So naturally, a game about souped up players smashing dingers into the atmosphere became the subject of plenty of jokes. Now, 2K Games has announced The Bigs 2... just a few weeks after baseball's biggest star, Alex Rodriguez, was linked to steroids. Sometimes the jokes write themselves.
Like it's predecessor, The Bigs 2 will be developed by Blue Castle Games and will be released on the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360. It will be in stores this Summer and offer more of the over-the-top baseball moments that the original did.
?Fans have been clamoring for a follow-up to The Bigs since it launched two years ago, so we're excited to now deliver The Bigs 2,? said Greg Thomas, senior vice president of development, 2K Sports. ?In the spirit of celebrating the most epic moments in Major League Baseball, The Bigs 2 offers a refreshingly fun and unique experience of dramatic walk-off homeruns, miraculous wall catches, acrobatic diving grabs, and many more incredible plays you'd usually see only in a highlight reel."
2K Games didn't reveal much else about the game, but we'll have more soon.
