The WWE 2K series will continue for awhile according to the latest press release from the companies involved. 2K Games and WWE have signed a new multi-year agreement, extending their partnership for an unspecified number of years. This means not only will we see WWE2K 17 later this year, but expect WWE 2K18, 19, 20, and probably beyond. This also means other companies can’t produce WWE games, so hopefully 2K keeps putting out quality titles.
“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,” said David Ismailer, Chief Operating Officer for 2K. “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.”
“2K’s leadership in authenticity, quality and overall brand dedication has been a perfect complement for WWE,” said Casey Collins, WWE Executive Vice President, Consumer Products. “Our continued partnership ensures WWE remains at the forefront of global video game brands as we continue innovating and publishing our offerings on multiple platforms.”
The financial info behind the deal was also not shared, so we unfortunately don’t know how much 2K payed to secure the exclusive rights to all things WWE.
