Part-time draw The Rock will grace the cover of the latest WWE game, WWE 2K14
. Casey Collins, Executive Vice President of Consumer Products, announced the news (via Pasta Padre
) prior to this past weekend's Wrestlemania 29 event, where The Rock lost his championship belt against John Cena. Don't worry, we're sure he'll get it back in time to promote the game later this year.
The WWE license was held by THQ for years, up until the company's collapse
late last year. THQ then proceeded to auction off its assets
, with Take-Two securing the WWE license and placing it under its 2K Sports banner. WWE 2K14
is due this fall.Update:
We followed up with 2K Sports to confirm what this game is actually called. The original announcement
by Take-Two called it "WWE '14," but Joystiq has confirmed with 2K Sports that the game will indeed be called WWE 2K14
. All references to the game in this post have been updated with the correct title.
