In a very surprising move, 2K Games has confirmed that the servers for WWE 2K15 will go down forever later this month. This has angered quite a few people since the game is not even that old.
2K Support announced on Twitter: “
#WWE2K15 server to be discontinued 5/31/16 at 11:59PM PST, ending online matches & community creations“. WWE 2K15 only came out in October and November 2014. Not to mention the PC version came out in April 2015. The lifespan of the game is considered to be very short among owners and they are not happy.
2K Sports did something similar to the NBA 2K franchise not too long ago. They shut down the servers just 18 months after the game went on sale. Fans got agitated so they extended the servers for a further six months so they were shut down 24 months after the game came out.
An annoying part about shutting down the online servers in WWE video games is that you can no longer download the community creations. Many people use this to download cool created wrestlers that other gamers have made. They often create NXT stars that are too new to be put in the game or wrestlers from other companies.
