Can WWE give their game license to a competent company?

I remember buying WF Smackdown: NYR from GAME store and they had the TV's with the gameplay footage. Everyone who had a PS1 bought the game. Even though the game hasn't aged well it was a must buy back in the day. Buying the game was a GATEWAY into getting into WWE. You got to know the roster, the rosters moves, the rosters entrance themes etc. Since then the game series has turned to shit.

THQ just threw out the same shit every year with a new roster and cartoon graphics. When they went bankrupt I was glad hoping a developer with ideas would do something with the series. Well 2K15 got 4/10 scores and looking at the graphics of that Lesnar/Taker footage it looks like a very early PS3 game.

Cant they just get someone decent for a change? How about Nintendo? They could have made use of the gamepad.

First of all you actually said "Someone decent" and "Nintendo" in the same sentence implying Nintendo is still a decent game developer which is absurd.
Why don't you form an opinion based on first hand experience of the game rather than "what it looks like".

The gameplay of this years games is the best its ever been since HCTP and Smackdown vs Raw
They do need to get better graphics but then are still rebuilding the game on Yukes engine.

The 2k basketball games look great, they will get there at some point At least with 2k the series is going in the right direction

Smackdown on the PS1 was garbage IMO

This year's game is solid, and the gameplay sh^ts on every other WWE game of the last 10 years

Also getting ride of Yukes and just letting 2k would fix a lot of it. Yukes are the lazy ones. 2k is fine, its Yukes that needs to go.

Smackdown know your role was a terrible wrestling game. It was way too fast and it was nothing like a wresting match. They are going in the correct direction now making it a SIM again and not the arcade BS, where you could take three fishers and pop up after 5 secs. They are finally going back to selling the moves again, and staying down longer when they should.

Lawl Nintendo developing it would fit in with the current PG product since Nintendo only makes games for children and weird old people obsessed with childhood nostalgia.

Who they gonna give the license to exactly? Everyone mentions EA but they'd be even worse.
