The interesting thing is that Kurakasis does not make any “statement” in his post, contrary to what the gaming pages in Turkey share. The only source of the allegations that 2K and FIFA have reached an agreement is Kurakasis. Instead of saying 2002, he wrote 2K2. In other words, it is not a statement but rather a reading of intent. In fact, no reliable ‘foreign’ game page has reported the issue, and the Reddit thread opened on the subject was removed by the moderators.
