The lights are on
The WWE license officially belongs to 2K. The publisher bought the rights to make WWE games from THQ, but now all the paperwork is signed, and 2K is officially the new publisher.
The WWE games are still being created by Japanese developer Yukes, but starting with WWE '14, you will see some new logos at the beginning of the game's start screen.
Look out for the next entry in the WWE series this fall.

HAHA I just put this news tip a bit too late I see.
SUPER Stoked to see this game coming this FALL!!!
I remember when this happened for the NFL and suddenly it was the end of the world.
So the gist of this story is that nothing is really changing other than the logo? I'm not complaining, or celebrating, I'm just trying to get the situation straight in my head.
Cool. I wonder if they can take it back to the old 'smackdown' days!
Bet Dan Ryckert is happy
So Yukes is still making the games huh? I would have hoped that the franchise would have taken a break and come out strong with massive changes with the change of hands here... lame...
It's keeping the same devs? I was hoping they'd bring some 2K magic to the game, and have a career mode like in NBA.
ah 2k treatment! nice
graphics should be nice even tho they was already
The Predator Engine was a breath of fresh air, but I agree that there should be a new direction for the series. Take a break and create something from the ground up!
I heard that Visual Concepts is also going to be a part of the development with Yukes, not just Yukes exclusively. So for people out there that want to see a "new direction" for the game (like myself), it looks like we might see a little bit of that after all.
Things get back to normalish right away. Cool.
okay lets see how this works out.
I just want a super diverse character and move editor with an unlimited entrance creator & with next gen graphics! And I want the Rock/Stone Cold era back & 2 women who feed me grapes while i play!
