WWE 2K15 is currently under development at 2K game studios Visual Concepts and Yukes. It is readying up for its October launch. With this year being the first time the franchise has come to the PS4 and Xbox One, technology has become the center of attention.
It is not a WWE game without one of the greatest superstars in the history of WWE, the Texas Rattlesnake, Stone Cold Steve Austin. Recently, Examiner.com had the opportunity to hear from Stone Cold Steve Austin about the experience he has had with the technology in WWE 2K15.
“I went down [to 2K Games] and all of a sudden, I was blown away by the technology. I got into this little booth and there were so many cameras. They started taking pictures and had me make all of these different faces like pain, smiling, mad, sad, glad [and] everything [else] but the kitchen sink. In the video game, I am exactly as good-looking as this. They represented Stone Cold Steve Austin to the highest degree,” Austin said.
2K Games believes they are making the best version of WWE 2K yet, and they even go as far as to say it’s impressive, like the NBA 2K series is. That is quite a bold statement to make, especially when you consider how unbelievably good NBA 2K looks. This is WWE 2K’s first trip to the PS4 and Xbox One, so this could be the defining installment in the series moving forward.
Stone Cold Steve Austin has been a star in the wrestling industry since the mid-90s, and through that he has been featured in many of the video games that have been released for pro wrestling. Austin talked a bit more about being in so many games and gave us a bottom line on what 2K Games has done with WWE 2K15.
“Me not being a technical video game person, it’s been a real honor to be involved in so many of them, and obviously the technology has changed. The technology curve has been incredible and what 2K has done with this game, it makes the experience that much better,” Austin said.
Stone Cold Steve Austin is a guy who has been in most WWE video games over the past decade and a half. He's obviously one of the few guys you can talk to and really has a frame of reference when it comes to the jump this game is making in terms of visuals. As we said before, WWE 2K15 will be launching on the PS4 and Xbox One for the first time in series’ history. It’ll be available on Oct. 28. Stay tuned for more coverage on WWE 2K15.
