2K Games will not be on the show floor at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo this summer, according to an announcement on its website. The company did not give any particular reason for not attending this year's show, only promising to release information on its slate of upcoming games later this spring.
"At 2K, we're excited for the new opportunities coming with the next generation of hardware, and are hard at work preparing our announced titles for release," the company wrote on its web site. "While 2K will not have a booth on the show floor at this year's E3 conference, we will have a lot of great news coming your way this spring," the statement continues.
Joystiq confirmed that, while 2K will not have a booth on the floor at E3 this year, it will hold private meeting with the press there in a meeting room.
"We are going to have a meeting room in the upper concourse level and we'll be doing some business meetings as we usually do," a Take-Two spokesperson confirmed with Joystiq. "2K is not participating."
Rockstar, a division of 2K Games, will likely not attend this year's event either – but the makers of Grand Theft Auto don't generally attend the show anyway.
2K Games is working on a number of big properties including XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iOS, WWE 14, NBA 2K14, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, the Civilization V expansion Brave New World, and Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V.
