Bloomberg has released an update on Take-Two acquiring the WWE video game license as part of THQ’s bankruptcy proceedings. Here is a list of some of the new terms.

* WWE and Yuke’s contracts with THQ have been terminated, allowing them to enter into new agreements with Take-Two, who will also hire the THQ crew that worked on WWE video games.

* THQ will have to pay WWE $650,000 in royalty payments for the video games sold while under bankruptcy protection.

* WWE’s “very large damage claims” against THQ have been dropped. The pre-bankruptcy claim of $45 million was for the value of the video game contract running through 2017.[
sounds like little will change tbh. garbage.

They should let Yukes make WWE 14 for the ps3 and let their own team make WWE 15 for next Gen consoles. I dont care if the game is bare bones as long as its good and the game has great gameplay.
If they need scrap the current engine and go with how HCTP was. That was the best WWE game IMO since the no AKI games

Prior to the court’s ruling, however, THQ and WWE held a private bid for the wrestling franchise, and according to Casey Collins, WWE’s executive vice president of consumer products, the bidding process was more about finding the right partner than grabbing the most cash.

Collins and the WWE leaders were particularly impressed by what Take-Two has done with the “NBA 2K” franchise.

As part of the five-year deal (financial terms were not disclosed), Take-Two has not only hired some of the key designers behind the WWE gaming franchise from THQ to work hand in hand with 2K Sports’ game design team at Visual Concepts, but has also agreed to bring back longtime WWE games developer Yukes from Japan to continue pushing ahead with the development of “WWE 14,” ensuring the new game will hit its fall 2013 release window.

Added Argent: “Everything that we’ve done with NBA is what we’re trying to contribute to WWE. So the growth that you’ve see in the NBA franchise from the authenticity in the game to the excitement of the marketing that surrounds it is all something we expect to add to the franchise. We’re going to create one hell of a video game franchise.”
Sounds interesting.

lol:
Obviously, Jay-Z won't be an executive producer on the "WWE 2K" series, but it's these types of decisions that garnered the respect of the WWE.


Jay-Z won't be, but knowing WWE, it'll be Flo Rida or something. Though I wouldn't mind if they just had Jim Johnson do a huge music score(like several just instrumental songs that each lasted 5 or so mins), even just use songs from WWE video packages(like the songs you hear in the recap videos from raw rebound) as main menu themes.

2K and WWE announce exclusive multi-year agreement for WWE video game series



NEW YORK — 2K and WWE today announced that they have entered into an exclusive multi-year agreement granting 2K the exclusive worldwide rights to publish the critically acclaimed WWE video game franchise across all major platforms and distribution channels. The series, which will continue to be developed by Yukes in Japan, will combine the studio’s signature gameplay with 2K’s commitment to authenticity in WWE ’14, the latest iteration of the popular, long-running series. With the addition of the WWE franchise, 2K will continue a highly successful, 15-year tradition established by past WWE titles. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“The WWE series is a great addition to our stable of triple-A titles, and we’re very happy with this exclusive agreement with our new partners,” said David Ismailer, Chief Operating Officer for 2K. “We look forward to capturing the excitement of WWE and marrying it with the same commitment to authenticity and entertainment that we give to our NBA 2K and MLB 2K franchises.”

2K has a strong history in growing premier sports simulation titles, evidenced by the incredible commercial success of the NBA 2K series, with more than 15 million units of NBA 2K11, NBA 2K12 and NBA 2K13 sold to-date worldwide. This year, in the first week of its release, NBA 2K13 sold 49 percent more copies in the same time frame than the franchise’s previous record-holder, NBA 2K11.

“2K’s reputation for outstanding quality and dedication to authenticity are a perfect fit for WWE,” said Casey Collins, Executive Vice President, Consumer Products for WWE. “This new partnership will ensure that WWE continues to be one of the leading video game brands in the world and we look forward to continuing the franchise with the benefit of their expertise across a variety of platforms.”

“The development work on the WWE franchise is impressive, and we’re excited to combine our background in developing the NBA 2K series with theirs in this new partnership,” said Greg Thomas, Executive Vice President of 2K Sports. “Fans can expect the most authentic WWE experience on game consoles this fall.”

Developed by Yukes, WWE ’14 is not yet rated by the ESRB and will be available for consoles in fall 2013.

Yeah 2K bringing in the same people from THQ, and they plan to release it in the fall? Another rushed, crappy THQ game this year. I wonder if 2k at least will have better QA for the game.
