2K Shanghai was founded as a subsidiary of 2K Games on 9 May 2006, in response to China's rapidly growing gaming market. Initial projects for the company included doing Chinese localisation for Civilization IV, developing an original intellectual property, and "serve as a hub for sales, marketing, development and outsourcing opportunities in China".
Two additional studios, 2K Hangzhou and 2K Chengdu, were founded in 2007 and June 2011, respectively, and 2K Shanghai was renamed 2K China to reflect its overall management role.
On 6 November 2015, 2K Games' parent company, Take-Two Interactive, announced that they had closed down 2K China due to profitability concerns over their in-development title Borderlands Online. Due to the closure, Borderlands Online was effectively cancelled. 150 people were made redundant at 2K China and its 2K Hangzhou studio, while the 2K Chengdu was retained as a quality assurance facility.
