2K and WWE have signed a new multi-year agreement for 2K to develop and publish future WWE video game titles.
The studio have extended their agreement with the professional wrestling organisation to develop further WWE titles since they originally acquired the rights back in 2013 following THQ’s dissolution.
WWE 2k14 was the first WWE video game title developed under the 2K banner and they have since developed two further titles – WWE 2K15 and most recently, WWE 2K16.
“2K’s leadership in authenticity, quality and overall brand dedication has been a perfect complement for WWE,” said Casey Collins, WWE Executive Vice President, Consumer Products.
“Our continued partnership ensures WWE remains at the forefront of global video game brands as we continue innovating and publishing our offerings on multiple platforms.”
2K will also continue to invest in the WWE SuperCard, a breakout hit card-battling game that has been downloaded more than nine million times.
“2K’s partnership with WWE over the past three years has resulted in a successful and important addition to the Company’s portfolio of profitable franchises,” said David Ismailer, Chief Operating Officer for 2K.
“We are thrilled with the positive momentum of the WWE 2K series, including generating year-over-year growth, as well as the success of WWE SuperCard. We are very pleased to extend our partnership with WWE and look forward to many more years of collaboration.”
No financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
