WWE 2K16 will have the largest cast of playable wrestlers of any game in the series, boasting over 120 different characters.

The news comes by way of an Instagram post from developer Visual Concepts. In the post, the studio responded to doubts about its claim of having the largest roster ever in the upcoming WWE 2K16. The developer also noted that the number counts only unique wrestlers and does not include the variety of different models that some characters have.

In comparison, last year's WWE 2K15 had only 67 playable characters, meaning that the roster has nearly doubled for this year's game.

WWE 2K16 launches on October 27 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. Which character do you want to play as in the game? Let us know in the comments.
