2K Games and WWE will continue their licensing agreement for years to come, according to both companies. Financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.
Long-time developer Yuke’s began working on the series in 2000 — at first under THQ, and then with 2K and its studio Visual Concepts three years ago. Their first, collaborative dip into the series was WWE 2K14.
In addition to the regular console franchise 2K stressed it will continue to invest in WWE SuperCard, the card-battling game developed by Cat Daddy Games studio. WWE SuperCard has been downloaded more than nine million times on mobile devices.
The latest WWE game has received a mixed response, though IGN’s own WWE 2K16 review was distinctly positive.
