WWE's video game franchise is in new hands for the first time in 2013 and fans are anxiously waiting to get the latest news and rumors from WWE 2K14. WWE's video games were some of the more popular video games on the market, but after THQ filed for bankruptcy, the rights to the WWE's video game franchise were sold over to 2K Sports, which is set to release their first WWE game in WWE 2K14 on October 29, 2013. There already have been some big news updates involving the new video game with the Ultimate Warrior making his return to the WWE in WWE 2K14 and The Rock being featured on the cover. There also have been a few confirmed superstars for the WWE 2K roster.
So far CM Punk, Dolph Ziggler, John Cena, The Rock, Stone Cold, Ryback, Shawn Michaels, Macho Man Randy Savage, and Ultimate Warrior have been confirmed for WWE 2K 14. However, the Ultimate Warrior is a pre-order exclusive. The remaining roster should be revealed soon, with the October release date quickly approaching. You can likely assume a lot of the big names on the current roster will be involved. The Randy Orton's, Daniel Bryan's, Big Show's, Kane's and the popular names that have been with WWE for at least the past year are all likely to be included.
Some other rumored names that aren't as obvious according to IGN include Scott Hall, Rowdy Rowdy Piper, and Andre the Giant. As Bleacher Report notes, on the night of last year's SummerSlam (August 18th), the entire roster was announced. Maybe the night of this year's SummerSlam fans will finally learn who will be on the roster for WWE 2k14?
