Forbes - With THQ no longer in business, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has inked a new deal with 2K Sports (a division of Take Two Interactive) to continue the successful lineage of pro wrestling video games. Beginning this fall with WWE 2K14, 2K Sports will usher in a new era of virtual wrestling.
To officially get things kicked off, 2K Sports held its first ever 2K Sports Superstar Challenge at Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey at WresleMania Axxess. Ironically, the 16 WWE superstars and divas that participated in the video game tournament were playing THQ’s WWE 13 game, which stands out as the best wrestling game ever made in my opinion. Behind the scenes, many of the key creative talent that made WWE 13 have moved over to 2K Sports and are continuing that franchise under a new publisher and banner.
