For the past several years, the WWE and 2K have brought players new wrestling titles for fans to enjoy and invest in the world of the WWE, with the publisher retaining exclusive publishing rights in a renewed contract deal.
Reports revealed that 2K Games has renewed its partnership with the WWE for a new multi-year deal, with the publisher to retain exclusive rights to new WWE titles on all platforms, from the console-based WWE titles to the mobile-friendly “SuperCard” iteration that offers wrestling gameplay in a free-to-play format.
2K Games COO David Ismailer detailed in a statement on the renewed partnership:
“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. We are very pleased to extend our partnership with WWE and look forward to many more years of collaboration.”
The company’s most recent release was WWE 2K16, which released last fall for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360.
