2K should just scrap MLB since they can't produce quality anymore

Because Sony has the rights to produce the only first party MLB licensed game for the forseeable future, effectively, denying Microsoft the ability to make one. Unlike how EA has a monopoly with NFL rights, at least Sony configured their deal with MLB to allow third party developers to be able to make MLB games for any console. Sony cares about the gamers, not so much about Microsoft.

I knew 2K owned third party rights but didn't know Sony owned first party rights.

Because they don't have a studio set up for that? Also the licensing contracts as stated above.

during the entire time 2k had the third party license microsoft could have set something up.

and are we sure sony owns the 1st party rights?...because i have never heard of that.
