In this writer’s humble opinion, the best Xbox tennis game of all time is 2K Top Spin 4 on Xbox 360 (sorry Virtual Tennis fans, that’s just how I feel!). Now, over a decade later, a rumor suggests that 2K may be bringing the series back.
This comes courtesy of journalist Shepshal_Nick on the XboxEra podcast (who also talked about an apparent “Gears Collection” on the same show), mentioning that the Czech team at 2K’s Hangar 13 appears to be working on it:
“I don’t want to get anyone too excited about this because remember a lot of these things are never 100%, they’re just rumors and mumbles and things we hear… I hear that we might see a new Top Spin Game. I think it would be Top Spin 5.”
“So yes. At the moment it is rumored that the Czech team at Hangar 13 is working on a Top Spin tennis game which we will probably hear about next year.”
Additionally, it was also mentioned on the podcast that EA might consider bringing back the old Grand Slam tennis series, though Nick doesn’t seem so sure about this one, suggesting he needs to be more into it.
In the meantime, remember that we have Match Point: Tennis Championships arrive day one on Xbox Game Pass in July, and we hope to add Top Spin 5 to the Xbox tennis games lineup in the not-too-distant future.
