GameSpot News has learned that Midway is currently preparing a follow-up to its popular Ready 2 Rumble for Sony's PlayStation2. The game is slated to release in time for the console's US launch this fall. The title will no doubt land on other platforms, such as Sega's Dreamcast, around the same time as well.
While no details on the game have been revealed so far, there are rumblings (no pun intended) that the sequel will feature a more challenging single-player game. Also, hints have been dropped about the sequel containing secret "celebrity" characters.
Midway is also currently developing another wrestling title using the Ready 2 Rumble engine that will likely land on the PlayStation2 as well. We'll keep you posted.
