WWE Games heading to 2K
THQ as a company has been dissolved and all of it’s licenses and properties have been auctioned off.
The status of a WWE game for 2013 will depend upon how the new publisher approaches WWE video games. If the publisher starts from scratch, there may not be another WWE game on the market for at least a year or two.
A formal court document shows that WWE’s license was NOT auctioned off in the sale of THQ’s assets. This tends to indicate WWE cancelled their licensing deal with THQ and has shopped or is shopping their property unilaterally.
A source from 2K has confirmed that the company will be acquiring the WWE games license.
