Jared Rea has provided a response to the complaints in regards to the "WWE 2K15" roster. According to a report from Attack of the Fan Boy on Aug. 18, a huge portion of the playable character list was revealed during a panel the day before the Summerslam pay-per-view event. However, the roster that was announced seems relatively small and did not feature some names that many fans were looking forward to playing.

Jared Rea acknowledge that several members of the community were disappointed with some of the divas and wrestlers not being confirmed at the panel. However, he reassured fans that there will be more roster reveals coming. A character selection screen suggested that the roster size may end up being 92 characters. Furthermore, 2K Games usually released more playable fighters through DLC packs.

The community manager behind the project also addressed the lack of information revealed so far. He admitted that the slow reveals are frustrating to fans, pleading with them to continue following the project as there will be more "awesome" things to be unveiled in the future. Aside from a few glimpse of the new in-game models, nothing official has been shown about the gameplay so far. However, a few leaked videos did show off the new lighting, animation and gameplay systems.

62 characters have been announced so far for "WWE 2K15." The list includes the two versions of Hulk Hogan that will be a part of the Hulkamania Edition. It also features two iterations of Sting, who is making his debut for the first time in the series, as pre-order launch exclusive bonuses for those who are reserving the software product in advance of release.

The amount of reveals should pick up as "WWE 2K15" is coming out in less than two months. This year's installment is slated for an Oct. 28 launch on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. You can take a look at the Hulkamania Edition near the top of this article (via the official WWE Games Twitter).
