Though really, everyone was expecting this to happen anyway, though much, much sooner. Among their problems, they owe WWE $45 million as per their multi-year agreement (whatever that is... or was). Vince... is obviously none too happy.
Looks like WWE '14 will be made by someone else, just not THQ.
Oh thank god!! THQ has done fuck all with the WWE series. The graphics are always the same recycled shit of every year and the gameplay hasn't evolved sice SvR 07. Really looking forward to seeing how a new developer will take the series.
Completely disagree on the game mechanics. WWE 13 had far from bad sales especially considering for a part of that time listed people were kinda concerned about more things..like having electricity and water.
Nothing in your "research" says it was a better game. Says there was more disposable income, but doesnt prove it was a better game.
During your "research" did you take into consideration the fact that WWE 12 was the start of a new game franchise and sold well BECAUSE of that and the quality of it actually could have HURT the sales of WWE 13???
I don't care, many people (especially on caws dot ws) were saying WWE '13 would sell more because of the whole Attitude Era crap. I told them that they were wrong, that WWE '13 would fail. I was, of course, accused of trolling but in the end, who was right? Me. I'm always right. And like I already stated before, your opinion doesn't really matter. WWE '12 was a bigger success than WWE '13.
WWE '13's gameplay may be slightly better, but the rest is just horse shit
Whoever makes the next game... BRING BACK GENERAL MANAGER MODE!!!!!!!!!!!! Also I really liked '12 and I'm getting '13 for xmas, there good games I stopped buying after '09, no general manager mode/universe mode = no buy from me.
I remember playing that gimmick thing and it was terrible. You couldn't chose who would win a match. If you want something that can do booking right try Total Extreme Wrestling.
