WWE: 2K Games Ensures the Future of WWE Video Games!

WWE.com has broken the big news for fans of the WWE video game franchise as 2k Games (commonly referred to as just 2K) and WWE have agreed to a multi-year agreement that will see 2K exclusively produce WWE’s video games. There has been a lot of questions, worries, and speculation regarding the franchise after there was no mention of the WWE games when THQ (the long-time developers of WWE’s games) sold off all of its assets to other game developers following the company filing for bankruptcy and subsequently going out of business. 2K is the company responsible for some of the biggest sports games of all-time, including the annual NBA 2K and MLB 2K franchises.

2K’s Chief Operating Officer, David Ismailer, commented on the deal, “The WWE series is a great addition to our stable of triple-A titles and we’re very happy with this exclusive agreement with our new partners. We look forward to capturing the excitement of WWE and marrying it with the same commitment to authenticity and entertainment that we give to our NBA 2K and MLB 2K franchises.” The Executive Vice President of Consumer Products for WWE, Casey Collins, also spoke on the new agreement, “2K’s reputation for outstanding quality and dedication to authentication are a perfect fit for WWE. This new partnership will ensure that WWE continues to be one of the leading video game brands in the world and we look forward to continuing the franchise with the benefit of their expertise across a variety of platforms.”

The Executive Vice President of 2K Sports, Greg Thomas, concluded, “The development work on the WWE franchise is impressive and we’re excited to combine our background in developing the NBA 2K series with theirs in this new partnership. Fans can expect the most authentic WWE experience on game consoles this fall.”

As eluded to by 2K Sports’ VP above, 2K has already began working with Japanese company, Yukes (which has been a part of the developmental team for the WWE games for several years), on WWE ’14, which will be out in the fall of this year (WWE typically has its games come out around October or November).
