It's the first year for Yukes' WWE franchise under the 2K umbrella, and it looks to be business as usual. Or is it? WWE 2K14's new '30 Years of WrestleMania' campaign takes you three decades of grappling, from the formative days of Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant, all the way up to The Rock and John Cena.

Boasting arguably the strongest WWE roster yet, WWE 2K14 is promising almost all of the biggest names in wrestling from the past 30 years, including Ultimate Warrior, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, The Rock and The Undertaker in various guises.

Having spent some quality hands-on time with WWE 2K14 and the 30 Years of WrestleMania mode (read our hands-on impressions here), we quizzed 2K Sports' WWE Brand Director, Bryce Yang to chat about fantasy match-ups, the roster, how the superstars get involved with the game and much more.

So you get Ultimate Warrior anyway, by playing through the Wrestlemania mode, not much of a pre-order "Bonus" then is it?

It's a shame WWE can't work out some contracts with their old wrestlers who are with TNA and such to get them in the game. If I'm playing 30 years of wrestlemania I sure as hell want to play the Hardy Boyz VS the Dudley boyz VS Edge and Christian TLC match from 'mania 17.

@2. Not only is your point a valid one, and damn right. But your user name made me chuckle.

It's the same game every year. 2K adds a mode or feature, but the same AI and control issues are there everytime.

2K is the new EA.

Their TNA Contracts forbid it

Hogan has a pre-existing deal that was grandfathered

@1 - you can play him outside the wrestlemania mode, so basically he is a locked character

My dream fantasy Wrestling match would be Sting vs. The Undertaker. I still hope and pray Sting might come to his senses before WM30.

WWE have so much history that they can ignore anything that might lead people to TNA. WWE won't even give them the slightest of footholds. Have they ever even said 'TNA' on air? This isn't the Monday Night Wars.

#8 and #12 - It's Yukes who make the game, THQ and 2K just put their name and presentation on it. The actual game design is nothing to do with them.

seriously guys, learn the difference between "developers" and "publishers"

Dream match - Ziggler v Eddie Guerrero v AJ Styles v HBK.

WWE need to realise wrestling has evolved and is considered a "dirty word", with many former die hard fans switching off. Trying to make a new ratings war won't reinvigorate the industry. Working together is something that hasn't happened and will bring back many old fans.
Sting v Undertaker with Sting still having a TNA contract will bring a lot more viewers than Sting leaving TNA for the meat grinder of WWE.

@#9 Sting vs Undertaker, we can only dream, lets hope it happens one day.

My dream fantasy match, call me a sheep but Stone Cold vs CM Punk.

Also Daniel Bryan vs Bret Hart in his prime
