Take Two CEO also says WWE 2K14 sales exceeded expectations.
Though Take Two Interactive was a bit cagey about the bigger release dates during its third quarter FY 2014 financial report, it did confirm that WWE 2K15 and NBA 2K15 would be hitting PS4 and Xbox One in the upcoming fiscal year.
Take Two president Karl Slatoff stated that, “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. We will have more to share about our titles throughout the next several months as we head into E3.”
CEO Strauss Zelnick was enthusiastic about the purchase of the WWE license from THQ. “Our WWE franchise has quickly proven to be a successful addition to our portfolio. 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-favourite 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.”
It remains to be seen when both games will release but Autumn 2014 seems like a safe bet.
