Announced on September 17, 2014, NHL 2K is the first in the series released exclusively on mobile. Chris Snyder, vice president of marketing at 2K Sports, viewed the brand revival on those platforms as building on the success seen by NHL 2K11's mobile release, while simultaneously targeting an underserved market. He confirmed that there are currently no plans to release new NHL 2K games on home consoles.[4]

NHL 2K was taken off of the App Store and Google Play in mid-2016 after two years on the market.
