Jared Rea has commented on several elements that could be added in the upcoming "WWE 2K15." According to a report from Attack of the Fanboy on July 7, the community manager behind the video game first revealed that this year's installment won't feature mixed gender matches where a male superstar can fight against a female wrestler. He explained that the television programming of the wrestling company has banned men against women violence for years.

In 2008, WWE decided to revert back to PG television rating after years of operating under the TV-14 setting. As a result, the company got rid of several elements such as intentional blood, scantily clad women as well as the aforesaid men against women violence. The more hardcore fans have been wanting for the company to return to the previous TV-14 setting, which was most popular during the Attitude Era.

Jared Rea also confirmed that "WWE 2K15" won't feature any nudity, jokingly adding that a "Teen" rating by the ESRB for the video game is "best for business." Finally, he warned fans not to talk too much about using mods in video games as it is a "grey area" in terms of the law. As a result, the companies involve with the upcoming title are uncomfortable with discussing the ability to modify the software product.

Attack of the Fanboy believes that mixed tag-team matches could still be added in this year's installment although the player could be disqualified by having a man hit a women. The aforementioned blood, as well as chair shots (which got banned due to concussions), should be appearing as well. "WWE 2K14" and the other previous games feature the two elements although both were barred from WWE television shows.

Jared Rea is expected to announce more details on "WWE 2K15" in the coming months. The newest game in the series is coming out for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on Oct. 28.
