2K to acquire PGA Tour 2K21’s HB Studios

A huge win for the Nova Scotian studio.

2K has announced plans to acquire PGA Tour 2K21‘s HB Studios, the Canadian-based developer that’s also behind The Golf Club and its sequels.

The acquisition is expected to be finalised in the coming weeks.

“The team’s love and knowledge of golf is immediately evident in our games,” said James Seaboyer, President and Studio Head at HB Studios. “We’re thrilled to officially become part of the 2K family and continue development of the PGA TOUR 2K franchise. Our work with 2K on PGA TOUR 2K21 brought our capabilities and aspirations to the next level, and we can’t wait to show the world what we’re planning for the future.”

“Through our new partnership and acquisition of HB Studios, we’ve reaffirmed our commitment to the PGA TOUR 2K franchise, expanded on our successful independent studio model and invested in both the right people and resources to bolster our portfolio of world-class sports experiences,” added David Ismailer, President of 2K.

2K advised that HB’s Lunenburg, Nova Scotia studio would remain its headquarters, soon to be part of Take-Two Interactive Canada’s portfolio.

PGA Tour 2K21 is out now on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 Switch and Stadia. We reviewed it (quite favourably!) here.
