WWE 14: 10 Implications From THQ Sale To Take Two

WC: With the news yesterday that video game publishing giant THQ had bottomed out and was in the process of selling off all of its assets, the Internet exploded, with many wondering which franchises would end up where. While most big projects have already been picked up, many were left guessing where the lucurative WWE license might end up, and though the ink isn’t quite dried on the contracts yet, it’s widely anticipated that Take Two Entertainment’s acquisition of the license will be completed in the next few days.

What does this spell for WWE games to come? It’s a confusing time as no official statements have been made yet; will Yukes continue development on their next WWE game, WWE 14, or will this year’s title be quickly cobbled together by the superb team at 2K Games, who develop titles under the Take Two banner? Or strangely enough, will there perhaps be a “fallow year” without a WWE game for the first time in well over a decade?

Here are 10 implications from THQ’s impending sale of the WWE license to Take Two. (PC, PS3, THQ, WWE '14, Xbox 360)
