2k Games 'No Comment' on Eurogamer Claims of Blacklisting
Following the news that 2K games has sacked off an over-zeleaous PR agency (The Redner Group) in the USA, UK games site Eurogamer's Editor at Large has claimed that his site is actively being blacklisted by 2K in the UK for a 3/10 review score given to Duke Nukem Forever.

This morning, Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell tweeted:

"I feel sorry for @TheRednerGroup today. We are blacklisted by @2KGames and it seems to be standard practice."

The Redner Group found itself out of a contract following tweets from a staff member threatening to blacklist sites who had reviewed Duke Nukem Forever in a 'venomous' way.

We've been in touch with 2K this morning for any comment regarding claims of a blacklist in relation to one of Europe's biggest gaming sites. We were told, "In response to your question, 'No comment'."
