The LEGO 2K Drive teaser announcement was made by a reluctant ANN minifigure news anchor Vicky Wheeler. The teaser features a steamroller wreaking havoc through a construction site with a stunning mountainous backdrop. While it’s not clear whether players will be able to drive the steamroller or explore the construction site, the tantalizing glimpse of the game has left fans speculating.
The game is a result of LEGO’s partnership with 2K, which has already been hinted at LEGO.com’s Intellectual Property Notice page. Previous leaks from last year also revealed that a minifigure polybag featuring the 2K logo will be offered as a possible product tie-up with the LEGO 2K Drive racing game. If you recall, Take-Two Interactive Software, or 2K, is the company that also gave us highly successful video game franchises such as Grand Theft Auto, NBA 2K series, Red Dead Redemption, WWE, and more.
