2K and the LEGO Group have announced “LEGO 2K Drive,” a AAA driving adventure game, available worldwide on May 19. Developed by Visual Concepts, “LEGO 2K Drive” evolves the LEGO play experience with a vast, open world where players can build any vehicle, drive anywhere and become a LEGO racing legend. 

“LEGO 2K Drive” will be the first release in a multi-title partnership between 2K and the LEGO Group to develop AAA LEGO games. “LEGO 2K Drive” will combine elements of open-world driving and fast-paced competitive racing, while introducing a diverse vehicle customization system. 

A collaboration with supercar and hypercar company, McLaren Automotive, will bring the McLaren Solus GT and McLaren F1 LM – just released in a LEGO Speed Champions double-pack set to help celebrate 60 years since McLaren was founded by racer and engineer, Bruce McLaren – to the world of Bricklandia. 

“Video games have long been an important way our fans experience the magic of the LEGO System-in-Play, and 2K’s strong track record of delivering quality, innovative titles for a broad range of audiences makes them the perfect partner to create the next iconic AAA LEGO games,” says Remi Marcelli, senior vice president, gaming and metaverse experiences, LEGO Group. “Beginning with ‘LEGO 2K Drive,’ we’re excited for fans to experience a fresh new take that builds on the LEGO humor and fun fans have come to expect.”

“The LEGO Group is an iconic brand with decades of innovative consumer experiences, and we were thrilled at the opportunity to partner with them as we continue to expand the 2K portfolio to new audiences worldwide,” says David Ismailer, president and chief executive officer, 2K. “‘LEGO 2K Drive’ is an incredible first step in our multi-title commitment to delivering new, groundbreaking LEGO games.”
