While annualized game franchises are something that happens with a lot of different genres, one area where we can kind of understand it is sports games. Here's everything we know about the next WWE game.
Few wrestlers have reached the cultural icon status enjoyed by John Cena over the course of his 15-year career with the WWE. Still, not everybody is a fan of the guy, which is highlighted in the trailer for the WWE 2K18 Cena (Nuff) Edition, a special edition of the game that boasts a whole bunch of extra goodies both physical and digital.
2K Games announced through WWE superstar Seth Rollins that for the first time in five years, finally WWE 2K is coming back to a Nintendo game console. This is a pretty big deal for a multitude of reasons, some of which Seth Rollins himself goes through in the announcement video.
With professional wrestling being as popular today as it has ever been, we figure now is as good a time as any for fans to dive headfirst into the latest installment, WWE 2K17. To that end, we've put together a collection of unlock lists to help you beef up your game roster right out of the gate.
Set to launch on Oct. 11, there's still a bit of waiting time between now and when wrestling fans can get their hands on WWE 2K17. Thankfully, that hasn't stopped 2K from rolling out fresh details on the game, including a nice, long look at what features will come packed on this year's iteration of the series.
If you follow gaming on YouTube you've likely come across a channel with more than a half-million subscribers called UpUpDownDown. It's a team effort hosted by WWE wrestler Xavier Woods, going by the YouTube moniker of Austin Creed. He recently explained how he got into gaming and how games changed his life.
WWE and 2K Games have renewed their partnership together that allows 2K to publish officially licensed WWE games across multiple platforms. This means several more years of 2K Games' WWE themed games. However, the financial details were not disclosed so there's no telling who gets what part of the share from the game sales.
It looks like Hulkamania isn't running wild on anyone anymore, brother. Following the recent release of some transcripts and interviews where Hulk Hogan uses racial slurs and other language, WWE has been systematically erasing Hogan from wrestling entirely.
It's been a long time coming, but a change is finally going to come... sort of. 2K Games and WWE have announced that they have finally acquired the last piece of the puzzle in the WCW banner of hall of famers: Sting.

Wrestling and non-wrestling fans may have heard of The Undertaker, a near seven-foot tall pro-wrestling athlete that uses an undertaker gimmick to get over with the crowd. While the whole darkside element of the character is popular, it's only matched in popularity by Mark Calaway's undefeated streak at Wrestlemania. Well, in case you didn't know, he also seems to have a streak going on in games.
Yesterday THQ sold off many of its studios and games to other companies. There was no mention of what happened to their license to create WWE video games, though. Rumor has it that THQ has found an interested buyer: Take-Two Interactive, the parent of 2K Sports.
We always figure that annual sports titles usually only get minor makeovers each iteration. It's not really possible to do a major breakaway unless it was already in the works a few years beforehand.
