Despite a mixed reaction from both fans and critics, WWE 2K15 has already outsold WWE 2K14 by a very big margin.
According to a report from Wrestlezone, WWE 2K15 has now officially passed WWE 2K14 in terms of overall sales. No exact figures were given although the game has been selling at a much faster rate.
WWE 2K14 came out way back in October 2013. WWE 2K15 has eclipsed that game’s total sales in just around five months. There is an advantage since WWE 2K15 came out for the PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox One.
WWE 2K14 also came out at a very bad time. It was released just prior to the launches of both the PS4 and Xbox One consoles. Many gamers opted to save their money on those systems instead of paying for WWE 2K14.
It’s also being noted that WWE itself promoted the WWE 2K15 video game heavily last year. The game featured frequently during weekly episodes of Raw and Smackdown.
It will be interesting to see how WWE 2K16 fares in terms of sales. WWE 2K15 may have sold very well, but word of mouth for the game hasn’t been that great.
Wrestlezone also claims the first official details for WWE 2K16 will be announced at E3 later this year. Plans could change though and details could leak earlier than June.
