[ad_1]

Top Spin, the beloved tennis video game franchise that hasn't seen a release in over a decade, is getting a revival. Publisher 2K revealed on Tuesday that Topspin 2K25 will be coming soon, pairing the announcement with a teaser trailer. The development coincides with the ongoing Australian Open, capitalizing on the first Grand Slam tennis fever of the year. Topspin 2K25 will be handled by Hangar 13, the 2K-owned studio behind the recent Mafia games. 2K has not specified a release date or window, with the game expected to be “coming soon”. However, with the 2K25 moniker, a release can be expected sometime later this year, as is the case with other 2K sports game franchises.

The TopSpin 2K25 teaser trailer showcases a fully licensed Australian Open competition, along with snippets of gameplay and cinematics rendered in the game's engine. Although no licensed players are shown in the trailer, it would be reasonable to expect the final game to include some of the biggest real-life tennis stars. “Topspin 2K25 is 2K's next must-play sports game that fully immerses fans in the world of tennis,” 2K said in the trailer description, promising more information on a release date, game features, and more in due course. Happened.

The announcement of Topspin 2K25 comes almost 13 years after the release of the last game in the Top Spin series. Top Spin 4, developed by 2K Czech, was released in March 2011 on PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 consoles.

It's worth noting that 2KCzech, also responsible for earlier titles in the Mafia series, merged with Hangar 13 in 2017. It has also been confirmed that the studio is working on an untitled Mafia sequel, colloquially known as Mafia 4. In 2022, Hangar 13 was merged. Said that the next Mafia game is “a few years away” from officially coming out.

2K hasn't revealed the platform for Topspin 2K25, but it's likely to hit current-gen and last-gen consoles. While the Top Spin franchise is making a long-awaited return, it's not due to a lack of tennis video games on the market. Australian developer Big Ant Studios released two tennis games – AO Tennis 2 and Tennis World Tour 2 – in 2022, both published by Nacon.
