Yes this 2K leak is real but I'm not sure all of it is going to be at E3. Can't wait for Marvel XCOM though https://t.co/6TxZSk8hDa

Listed is the cover athlete for NBA 2K22, which claims it to be Dirk Nowitzki. It also mentions a new game that has been referred to as “Cthulu Meets Sants Row”. This game is known as Codename Volt and is possibly being developed by Hanger 13, of Mafia III fame.
A major claim is that we can expect a Tiny Tina spin-off game. The game, which is called Wonderland, seems to be similar to other games Borderlands games, having multi-class heroes. Randy Pitchford rumored several projects through tweets. He claims that Gearbox will also develop all spin-offs of the franchise as well. The big Borderlands game he has been teasing might be this one.
The last big reveal is of course Marvels’ XCOM. During an earnings call CEO Strauss Zelnick stated:
“As a result of the engagement from the past as well as the success of XCOM Chimera Squad and XCOM 2 on Switch, Firaxis games had one of its best years ever,”
This of course paints a picture of where the studio stands moving forward. Working under the title, Codename CODA, the game will be “XCOM with Marvel Heros”. While the game hasn’t been referred to under the Avengers title as of yet, most team-ups in the universe do owe to the vast number of popular characters you get access to.
Gearbox will have their E3 showing on Saturday, June 12th while 2K will have their E3 showing Monday, June 15th.
