The Rock has been chosen to be the cover superstar for WWE 2K14. This announcement was made today at the company’s Business Partners Summit by WWE executive vice president of consumer products Casey Collins. The news was tweeted from WWE EVP of Creative Stephanie McMahon’s Twitter account.WWE 2K14 was announced this past February. Publishing duties have been taken over by Take-Two Interactive, but Yukes is still attached as developer. It’s expected to be released in the fall. We don’t know if WWE 2K14 will make its way to next generation consoles, but PS3 and Xbox 360 releases are all but certain.
WWE 13 gained a lot of popularity last year due to its focus on WWE’s famed “attitude” era. It’s my hope WWE 2K 14 will continue its focus on WWE legends and hall of famers. At the same time, it would be great to see the custom made story feature expanded.
