Casey Collins has provided some details as to how Yukes, the developer behind the recently-released “WWE ’13,” will work with Visual Concepts in developing future WWE video games. According to a report by ESPN on Feb. 20, the executive vice president of consumer products disclosed that they will be melding the two studios in order to get the “best of both worlds.” You can check out some screens from the wrestling video game in the slideshow at the top of this article and the comments from Casey Collins below (courtesy of ESPN):
With Yukes, we have a lot of history, and we’ve been very happy with what Yukes has done in the past. What we’re going to do moving forward is meld Yukes with the team at Visual Concepts, so we can have the best of both worlds. Having Yukes’ experience and then getting the Visual Concepts guys on board with them, we think this is going to be a dynamic duo.
“WWE ’13” was published by THQ when it launched for the Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms in North America on Oct. 30, 2012. The title places a heavy emphasis on the Attitude Era part of WWE’s history. You can pre-order the wrestling video game in the following link: “WWE ’13”
2K Games, who is the parent company of the aforementioned Visual Concepts, acquired the rights for future WWE games after THQ filed for bankruptcy and was forced to sell off their assets.
