Developed by Yuke’s, the seres’ traditional developer, WWE 2K14 promises to combine the "studio's signature gameplay with 2K's commitment to authenticity.” The Rock is this year’s cover star.

You’ll be able to grapple with the title on October 29th in North America, which suggests a November 1st release in Europe.

WF No Mercy HD remake for the XBLA would do.

Awesome gameplay, decent roster and no PG shit.

Get AKI's old Wrestling game engine (VPW2, No Mercy, etc.)
Update it with new moves, a huge CAW mode (like before) and add enhanced graphics

Id love to see them to try and implement a Raw 2 style multiplayer season mode from the original Xbox, it wasnt perfect but the idea was there and I think if they worked on it it could really add to the multiplayer side of the game.

The thing about No Mercy was that it felt, in my opinion, the right amount of slow movement and actions to make it seem authentic.

Today's games for the WWE are just to fast and slick, it needs to slow it down like No Mercy did.

@2 How can this game not be what it used to be when there has never been a 2k WWE? Give them a chance before writing it off aswell.

This game won't be that much different than WWE 13, from THQ as it is using the same studio and for a period of it's development was still under THQ management.

I expect more change in WWE 2K15, as 2K are planning on bringing it in house.

Let hope it is turn out being great. I did like few WWE games from Yuke's but I still loved and one of best games of all-time is WWF No Mercy. I alway wish WWE game going back from what WWF No Mercy gameplay.

I think this new WWE game will be just like yearly WWE games with add some new twists etc...

Servers usually terrible in recent years. I hope 2K Games make sure Yuke's have better servers unlike THQ didn't make sure. I think because THQ don't have kind of money help to update Yuke's servers. Maybe 2K Games this time help and better servers for Yuke's

Wait and see.... :):)

Signature Gameplay? So the same we've had for the past 8 years? Honestly, the only thing they change are the control scheme & roster. I usually rent them, but got WWE 13 for the excellent Attitude Era stuff. This game series could honestly benefit from taking a leaf out of EA Sports' book with Tiger Woods 15 & take a year out to look at where it can be bettered.

@8 - AKI's No Mercy engine (or more specifically their VPW2 engine) is still the best gameplay engine for any wrestling game - it just "feels" alot better rather than the overly fast feel that all of the SvsR games have had (including WWE12 & 13).

Add in the fact that the moves list is alot more comprehensive (sure you'd need to bring it upto date with some of the newer WWE finishers etc. but it'd be easy to do), and that you could also create MMA fighters and have UFC/Pride style matches in addition to all of your standard wrestling bouts and you can see why it has the following that it does and so many people consider it the best wrestling game engine out there to date.

Sure, looking at No Mercy or VPW2 now they look old - but thats cause they are! (- over 10years old infact!) However despite being old, the AKI engine is still the best and its gameplay still holds up - Now just imagine what could be done with that AKI engine on current gen console technology...

Last time I played a wrestling game was in 1999 on the Genesis, I understand football games but im surprised that wresting still has the momentum to have yearly game releases.

I was very happy when 2K got these, I've always preferred their sports games to EAs and believed they could do a fantastic job with the WWE license. Then I found out Yukes were still developing it and I knew it would continue to be a disappointment. 2K need to take these over themselves and kick Yukes to the curb asap.

@25 Oh I hear ya with the 'need to move on' - I kinda feel thats something that WWE titles have lacked in a long time and they've been mostly the same with just a roster update and maybe a graphical tweak here and there.

Hopefully if 2K bring development in-house next year we'll finally see a game thats able to 'borrow' the best elements of previous wrestling-game engines and improve on it. Having servers that don't fall down every 5mins would also be a big one-up on the last couple of WWE THQ releases for starters! ;)

I'm not into watching wrestling anymore, but I love creating characters on this game. The one I enjoyed the most was SmackDown vs RAW 2010, after that the editor wasn't that good.
Since this now belong to 2kGames, I'm waiting for some screens. But I still may skip this one and buy the next year game instead, as the next ont will not have any early work or ideas from THQ.

There is a TNA game, and I liked it as a base model for them to build from but it was widely panned, and the company that made it went under.

I hope TNA find someone else to make another one, I'm surprised they haven't already.

Fingers crossed for next gen,

It's a fighting game without fluent fighting. The WWE game can't do what the first Batman game already could: fluent fights.

so the Rock is the cover? yeah, cause everyone wants to see that. but I guess between Rock & cena, I'd go the Rock. but I would prefer CM Punk anyday.

Fuck off Rock, you are shit. you are only in it now for movie promotion & money.

#33 you're an idiot The Rock comes from a family of wrestlers and loves the business, it's not his fault the current WWE writers are garbage and that Vince McMahon wants to shove a stale 8 year old John Cena down everyones throats.

@14...If you are going to correct someone on their might want to learn the difference between there, their & they're...

@34...Im with 33 on this one...let's face it...if the rock truly cared for the wrestling business...he would have worked each week day in and day out as opposed to appearing periodically via satellite to promote his latest movie and stealing the llimelight from other wrestlers that deserve much as I dislike have to agree that he's one of the hardest workers there...

Im looking forward to this game...I get them every year and this year will be no different...I'm interested to see what 2k brings to the one purchase for me..

#34. i agree with you that the Rock has history with the business. My point is what #35 stated. Rock is a guy who with WWE its all about him, its his limelight, a reason why CM Punk has taken a break, because of all the backstage BS. What had the Rock done from the Royal Rumble to Wrestlemania? a few appearances, a few segments of "story time with Rock", Rock bottom here, people's elbow there. Try to deny it, but he WAS just there for GI Joe & a free title shot. Yes he does have a share in the company, but for him to say " The Rock is home" then disappear, My opinion is (& it is my opinion) He didn't deserve to win the title at Royal Rumble & he doesn't deserve a cover for 2k14. CM Punk, Dolf Ziggler, Antonio Cesaro, hell even Zack Ryder, guys that throw themselves & give 100% every week deserve a cover more than the Rock.

8: What the hell are you talking about? Def Jam Vendetta and Fight for NY were both outstanding games. Unrealistic, yeah, but fun as hell. Nobody can mention the Def Jam game that came out for the 360, because that didn't go anywhere near AKI's engine. The two outstanding engines that the Smackdown series hasn't touched is the AKI/THQ engine that made Revenge, No Mercy, WrestleMania 2000, etc., and the Fire Pro engine, NOT the terrible Avatar "Fire Pro" that's on the marketplace.

Vendetta and Fight for NY proved that not only has the AKI engine held up well through all these years, but that it can even remain to be a strong engine through graphical upgrades, because not only were they outrageously fun, they were great-looking games. Apply that, return the seriousness of No Mercy and its predecessors, and you got yourself the perfect game.

Also, 36: Agree completely. I've been following Punk on the indies for over 12 years, and even though his little chart showing how long he held the title led me to believe that he wasn't going to have a record-setting title reign, I was very upset that that possibility was destroyed by someone who really doesn't even wrestle anymore. The reason he won the title at RR was so that he could carry around the belt at Red Carpet appearances, promotes the E while he promotes his movie, Vince gives him a cut of the company promotion, win-win-win for The Rock. I was at WrestleMania this year, and even not being a fan of Cena's at the time, I celebrated far beyond what I'd ever expected when Cena won. I felt like the belt was out of Hollywood and back in wrestling where it belonged. Bababooie

First of all CM Punk is on a break because he's recovering from injuries and hasn't been wrestling non stop since he started. Second The Rock came back because he loves to wrestle and he wanted to pay back the company that put him on the map. He couldn't wrestle every week because he had other obligations to promote and shoot movies, it wasn't his choice to be made champion that was Vince's whole idea to try and put Cena over. The Rock risked his body at Wrestlemania and almost had ruined his planned Hercules movie by getting injured, the guy literally put his career on the line for the fans but so what fuck him right ?

@38 Im sorry dude, but how can a guy put his career on the line when he's gassed 5 minutes into the match?
Seriously, this shit isn't real, & anyone that knows that & pays attention should know of all the backstage politics. What Rock's gone for like 10 years out of the ring, GIJoe is promoted & the magical WWE fairies magically give the Rock a title shot worth millions of dollars for a cut of profits for him being there. Punk was legit injured atWM because of the announce table not breaking yes. But he is sick of undeserving stars getting handed everything while the hard workers are fucked aroun. Like I said Dolf Ziggler, Antonio cesaro, kane, daniel bryan, zack ryder, jericho ( do i need to go on)?. Yet cena, ryback,ROCK, kofi kingston get handed titles.
Seriously, are you one that believes in it? The bottom line is the rock didnt deserve to win at RoyalRumble & he doesnt deserve the cover. Get over it.

@38: Once again if the rock really loved to wrestle and cared about the fans he would have come back 7-8 years ago when he was still relevant...he's essentially has gone down the same path as Hogan, Nash, Flair and all the other oldies that wont give it up and retire...he's a money hungry whore who only cares about himself and not the business and the paying fans...and as far as him not having the belt to Hollywood...he had it with him for the premiere of g.i. joe...he used it as a promotional tool to further his far as bad title runs...I put his right up there with David arquettes WCW title run...
