Take-Two Faces Lawsuit Over Controversial ‘Loot Boxes’ in NBA 2K

Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. is facing a class-action lawsuit over the deceptive sale of loot boxes to minors in its popular NBA 2K video game series. 

One of its  recent iterations of the basketball game franchise, NBA 2K21, has sold more than 10 million copies and some 2 million people played the game daily last year, according to the company’s latest annual report. The game costs $59.99 and players can spend additional money on in-game currency they use to upgrade a player’s clothing or receive new players.
