You Won’t See the End of WWE 2K Games….Ever
If you are a fan of WWE 2K Games, then we have some pretty awesome news for you. There won’t be an end of WWE 2K Games as developers fully intend to keep making new entries as long as possible.
2K Games has exclusive video game rights for WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and it has no intentions on letting it go to anyone anytime soon. Both 2K and WWE have signed a multi-year extension deal.
According to David Ismailer, Chief Operating Officer for 2K:
2K’s partnership with WWE over the past three years has resulted in a successful and important addition to the Company’s portfolio of profitable franchises. We are thrilled with the positive momentum of the WWE 2K series, including generating year-over-year growth, as well as the success of WWE SuperCard. We are very pleased to extend our partnership with WWE and look forward to many more years of collaboration.
The deal is good news for 2K Games but I don’t think fans would be too ecstatic about this. The biggest downside with such deals is that it may cause the franchise to become stale and stagnant, some might argue that it already is, but you get the point.
This year, 2K games will release WWE 2K17. Motion Capture for the game has began and the very first superstar to be revealed is Kenny King.
