2K, a wholly owned publishing label of Take-Two Interactive today
officially announced the take over of the WWE video game license from THQ.
2K now holds the exclusive worldwide rights to publish the WWE video games
across all major platforms and distribution channels. Yukes will continue
to develop the game in Japan and the THQ/WWE team who worked on the games
before will continue to work on WWE ’14 for 2K. ³The 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,” said David Ismailer, Chief
Operating Officer for 2K. “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.” 2K is the
team behind the popular NBA 2K series and Greg Thomas, Executive Vice
President of 2K Sports, said that combining their background in developing
the NBA game with the WWE franchise will result in the most authentic WWE
video game experience on game consoles.
