Finally! The Rock, has come back, to a video game cover!
Take-Two Interactive’s Executive Vice President of Consumer Products, Casey Collins, announced the news over this past weekend during all the Wrestlemania craziness in New York. They also cleared up the mystery of what exactly the title of the game would be and it will, indeed, be brought under their 2K Sports banner as WWE 2K14.
As I’m sure you know THQ had been stealing the show with WWE’s video game license for as long as anyone can remember. With the company’s “out of nowhere” collapse a few months ago, Take-Two took the opportunity to continue its streak, as they grow one step closer to becoming best in the world when it comes to sports video games.
What some wrestling fans may notice is that in the past the WWE champion, at the time, is usually placed on the cover. With the announcement coming just days before The Rock’s time was up and John Cena’s time was starting, you’ll have to wonder if “The Great One” will be he champ again to promote the game when the time comes.
What do you guys think of The Rock on the cover this year? Will you be counting down the days till it’s time to play the game? Let us know in the comments!
