2K Games is a global developer, marketer, distributor and publisher of interactive entertainment software games.[1] 2K Games is a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive, and was created on January 25, 2005 after Take-Two acquired developer Visual Concepts and its wholly owned subsidiary Kush Games from Sega for US$24 million. The name "2K Games" comes from Visual Concepts' sports game lineup typically referred to as the 2K series, which were originally published exclusively for the Dreamcast console.

2K Games is headquartered in Novato, California. The label publishes a wide variety of console and PC titles developed both internally and externally.
