2K Games have announced that they are set to continue their relationship with WWE, following the successful release of WWE 2K16 at the end of 2015. The partnership is set to continue with a “multi-year extension,” which will see 2K Games maintaining the exclusive rights to produce WWE licensed titles.
The announcement, which was produced by both parties, presented itself as somewhat of a love-in as the two companies spoke of how content they were with the arrangement. 2K Games confirmed they’ll continue working on the WWE 2K series, as well as committing to the future of WWE SuperCard as their Chief Operating Officer explained their pleasure at the committed future:
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.
Along with this WWE Executive Vice President, Consumer Products, Casey Collins, added:
2K’s leadership in authenticity, quality and overall brand dedication has been a perfect complement for WWE. 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.
So it seems like WWE fans can expect to see more and more along the lines of WWE 2K16 with each passing year and, based on our review of the latest instalment, the franchise is in fairly good hands for now.
