WWE 2K15 and NBA 2K15 confirmed for next-gen

Take-Two says both titles are headed to Xbox One and PS4

The next games in the NBA 2K and WWE 2K series will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The news was confirmed during a Take-Two earnings call, which took place last night.


"During fiscal 2015, consumers can look forward to exciting next generation releases from our NBA 2K and WWE franchises as well as other unannounced titles that promise to raise the bar for excellence," said Take-Two president Karl Slatoff.

"Our WWE franchise has quickly proven to be a successful addition to our portfolio," added chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick.

"Sales of WWE 2K14 have exceeded our expectations and the title is being supported with add-on content including a Season Pass featuring many of fan-favorite WWE superstars and legends.

"We believe there is a meaningful opportunity to grow this series by further leveraging 2K's marketing power and development expertise."

Zelnick also praised the release of Visual Concepts' NBA 2K14. "2K builds upon their legacy of delivering the highest graded and top selling basketball video game with their current next-gen releases of NBA 2K14," he said.

"The title has become the fastest selling release in history of our NBA 2K franchise with sell-in to date of more than 5 million units across console and PC."

WWE 2K14 was the first WWE game from Take-Two, after it acquired the rights to the license in February following the demise of THQ.
