2K Release Statement About the Omission of Four Horsewomen in WWE 2K16
Now that we have the full list of wrestlers for WWE 2K16 there appears to be some noticeable omissions. This has led to not only annoyed fans but also some superstars too.
The problem is surrounding the four women wrestlers from NXT known as the Four Horsewomen. These are Sasha Banks, Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Bayley. As these are four of the most impressive performers for the company and are part of one of the main stories at this time why are they missing?
The obvious thought for this would be future inclusion in DLC for the game, but this appears not to be the case. In fact, a statement by 2K has made the situation clear:
“With our final roster reveal this past Monday, it was awesome seeing the excitement for The New Day, Enzo and Cass, Mikey Whipwreck, and more. But it was clear that some in the community are frustrated by the lack of the newer Divas added to the main WWE roster recently.
We pushed as hard as we could to include Sasha Banks, Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Bayley in WWE 2k16, but it simply did not work out for various reasons. While we are not divulging full details on WWE 2K16’s post-launch plans just yet, we can confirm that the Four Horsewomen will not be available as DLC.
We are proud to have and built the largest WWE roster to date featuring the most Divas ever. The WWE 2K16 disc includes all of the Divas on the main roster at the time we locked it in (13 playable in total).
We all agree the Divas Revolution is great for business and look forward to celebrating the Divas even more in future WWE 2K titles.”
What makes the situation even stranger is the fact that the wrestlers themselves were even scanned for the game:
