Bill Goldberg has commented on his potential appearance in "WWE 2K15" on the PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360. According to a report from Attack of the Fanboy on July 2, the wrestler clarified that he does not expect to be in the wrestling video game. He was previously playable in last year's version, "WWE 2K14."
Bill Goldberg was rumored in the past to be coming back to the WWE, perhaps as an active wrestler. A new DVD came out last year, detailing his career in both WCW and WWE promotions. In "WWE 2K14," players were able to control his in his Wrestlemania XX match against Brock Lesnar as part of the 30 Years of Wrestlemania mode.
Along with Bill Goldberg, Mick Foley hinted recently that he is most likely not going to be playable in "WWE 2K15." The man behind Cactus Jack, Dude Love and Mankind disclosed that the compensation for using his likeliness in the video game was far too little. WWE has been going through some financial troubles lately, especially after the stock of the company rapidly declined due to the disappointing WWE Network subscription numbers.
A handful of wrestlers have been disclosed for the upcoming title so far. The short list includes John Cena, who was revealed as the cover star during the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. The other names confirmed are Bray Wyatt, Cesaro, Hulk Hogan and Roman Reigns. 2K Games also announced that Paul Heyman is included as the manager while Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole will be providing the commentary during matches.
More playable characters are expected to be announced before the software product launches on the PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms. The video game is coming out first on Oct. 28 in North America, followed by a Oct. 31 launch in Europe.
