2K Sports Officially Gets Into The WrestleMania 29 Ring With Superstar Challenge 2013

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. (2K Sports, THQ, WWE 13, WWE 2K14, Xbox 360)

I really can't wait to see what 2k brings to the wwe games. Show it already! :(

If anyone can breath life into an old sports game that severely needs a reboot, it would be 2k.

I just hope they get to make football games again sometime in the near future. Damn you EA and NFL for making Madden the exclusive NFL game.

Can't wait to see what they can do with WWE.

HHH and Kevin Nash always give the best interviews.

I remember when HHH and Steph were feuding and she insulted his "big log" and he replied by saying "Even a 747 looks small going through the Grand Canyon." lol!

I hope 2K can revive this game.. I loved the original Smackdown games, but they became so dull after Smackdown Vs. Raw.
