WWE 2K15 launching October 28 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4

2K confirms launch date and platforms for this year's professional wrestling game.

2K Sports announced today on Twitter that WWE 2K15 will launch October 28 in North America across Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. The professional wrestling game will be available internationally three days later on October 31 for the same platforms.

WWE 2K15 was previously announced, but we didn't know anything about platforms or a release date until today. 2K also shared a logo for the game today, but there's no screenshots, video, or other game details to speak of. Last year's WWE 2K14 was developed by Yuke's.

I'm hoping they use the extra RAM of the new systems to increase the number of active wrestlers in a match... I want some 4-way tag action!

I just hope Yukes is gone. Bring us a game that can finally be as great as the AKI-developed N64 wrestling games. Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 and WWF No Mercy are still the greatest.

Does this mean...Yukes is finally gone?

I just want a good CAW, and we haven't seen one since RAW on the XBOX.

I'm getting this. I missed '14, but the pin bug of '13 annoys me. Still, hopefully we'll get an engine upgrade soon for the new generation of hardware. I think the last one was when it was renamed Smackdown vs Raw.

Not a joke, but they need to make a wrestling "simulation mode."  Meaning the gameplay revolves around cooperation between the combatants, with the controls doing as much.  Players will have control over how they will "sell" their opponent's move, either to oversell or no-sell.  Winner will be predetermined, and if you're the winner, you never have to manually kick out (though you can) as the AI will always let go at the very last second.

ill pass this time they never improve the game a whole lot to make it better its boring every year bring back the backstage areas where we can go from the ring to the backstage thats what people want and let us fight in the crowd

Wonder when they will actually work on improving the gameplay mechanics of the game?

It seems like they've hardly took a step forward in the right direction but I guess if people are buying it yearly who is to blame them for having suckers like that.

And yet Call of Duty gets all the hate. Not this yearly release.

I never once bought a WWE game during the previous generation of consoles (I had the xbox360), but I'm planning to buy it annually starting with this this year's version on my PS4.

Would like to see current attire for wrestlers. Not what the game creators think looks cool but actual attire. Would also like to see attitude era superstars along with ruthless agression era superstars and divas. Time to take out the retro and title dates in the entrances and vs. Screen. Would love to have superstars like Goldberg in the game still. Brock lesnar trunk attire with chest tattoo. Randy Orton beard or no beard option. Triple H long hair or short hair in same superstar profile. Undertaker deadman inc. Pants and Rollin entrance song. Also more realist hairstyles and trunk and tights designs. Things you'd want your superstar to wear.

Proper story mode please like Smackdown2. Need good feauds, assaults in ring backstage make it seem life like none of the boring same cutscene you get clotheslined from behind and then stomped on. Also why not some wcw wrestlers, arenas or even a wcw story mode or invasion style since they have the rights to them. wolfpac, nwo, classic sting etc etc,

if there's a group of people who need to organize, it's professional wrestlers.  the WWE basically owns these guys.

I wonder if it will have graphics that actually look post 2005 in this game?

thinking of this title , makes me miss the first Smack vs Raw on PS2 my most fav. title after that is just  to easy even on hard or whatever mode.

They need every cent they can get after that stock plummet of theirs.

THQ and AKI have been the only ones to create a good wrestling game.

WWF No Mercy was the only wrestling game I've spent many hours playing. New WWE games are boring, and don't quiet have half the No Mercy had.

What I hope:


-2k graphic engine (nba 2k14), so we can finally get realistic looking models.


-Get rid of Yuke's (they're dropping the ball with each release, plethora of bugs)


-Career mode, GM mode back.


-Custom music, use our own tunes. 2k14 only allowed ONE custom tune, which is crappy. We need custom tunes so we can make the CAWS more loyal to their real life counterparts.


-A more advanced create an entrance, so we can make animations frame by frame and not using full entrance templates. So if we make a CAW of wrestlers not in the game we can make their entrance exactly how it is in real life.

Just make WWF No Mercy 2 and I will be happy.

Please no part timer covers I refused to buy last year's due to rock cover. I would like to see an up and coming star on cover like cesaro or bad news Barrett.

I would also like to have the custom wrestler story mode back too. Bring back a Hardcore Championship storyline with it lol.

@SavoyPrime everyone wants Aki but Aki is gone and basicly is a shadow of its former self meanwhile Spike has a bigger legacy yet i rarely see people show them love kinda of sad really

@FighterforJC  This simply does not work for a videogame mode. Developers already tried doing this with the PSP game called The Con, and it ended up being really boring as a result.

@SLAMMIN23 I did like when you could manually go from the ring to the backstage areas at will, I'd think that should be possible (especially with the new gen system's hardware).

BlackBaldwin

That would require thought and love for the franchise and its fanbase I doubt it will ever happen.

@BamaGoatt  You could turn over the cover and get Daniel Bryan, there were multiple copies with double covers. Not buying a game for the cover is stupid, were not in the 80s anymore.

@chev77588 @BamaGoatt  really I am close to the rocks age just never liked him or his character. I was more into wcw back then though so didn't watch raw or smackdown as often. Funny how people rip tna when they are ripping off the attitude era nicely, sadly I hear they are going more pg soon as well guess that means no more Samuel Shaw stalker character.

BamaGoatt

@Chronologo @BamaGoatt  how is it stupid? Each game sold puts money in the rocks hand I wanted no part of that just like I avoid his movies I avoid rock promoted stuff.

@chev77588 @Staranime010

Actually they are. There's a reason THQ and 2K never changed developer. Also worthy of note is that if they did change developer, they would most likely have to start the game from scratch, meaning all the creative suites would have to go and people would end up moaning because the Yuke's games had more content...

The issue isn't with the developer, but the 1 year cycle. Every year they feel the need to introduce a new feature to make the game feel fresh, even though the under lying code remains unchanged. They spend so much time on these 'revolutionary' features, they don't have enough time to Q&A and something ends up broken. It's not the developer that damages the WWE games, it's time.

@funny16 @BamaGoatt  sure but the cover athletes get paid for each game sold the rest just get paid under the legend or wwe contracts they signed. If you don't get it let me be clear I hate the rock never liked his character don't find him funny at all. I hate him so much that I started liking John cena for a bit lol.

@BamaGoatt  That makes no sense. They are getting paid whether they are on the cover or not.

BamaGoatt

@sanchango  yes actually I do that didn't buy ncaa last year due to a Michigan player on the cover didn't buy Madden when Ray Lewis was on the cover and didn't buy nba 2k14 due to lebum cover. I have a right to skip games that pay people I don't want to support with my money.

sanchango

@BamaGoatt @Chronologo  that is stupid, probably a bad comparison, but it's like if wheaties put an athlete I didn't like. I love wheaties, but because they put that athlete on the box, I decided not to buy a box. 

Do you not buy sports games if there is an athlete that you don't like? The point is you buy the game FOR THE GAME not because of what's on the cover.
