More details may have been leaked in regards to the upcoming “WWE 2K15.” According to a report from Gaming Root on April 11, the PS4 and Xbox One video game is going to feature several major changes when compared to “WWE 2K14” as well as the previous installments of the series. One of the features may come from the “NBA 2K” franchise.

In the basketball simulation titles, 2K Games keep the video games as current as possible by updating the statistics and other features using the “NBA Today” element. The “WWE Network” feature for “WWE 2K15” should be similar. In addition to dynamically changing the stats for the wrestlers, the development team can also update the animations, character models and maneuvers. One of the examples that were used is the in-game version of John Cena getting updated after the superstar gets a haircut in real life.

“WWE 2K15” is the first game in the series to be developed for the PS4 and Xbox One. Aside from the potential improved graphics, the video game may also take advantage of the unique features of the next-generation systems. The development teams are apparently using the touch pad of the PS4 in order to perform reversals as well as finishing attacks.

Take-Two Interactive confirmed that “WWE 2K15” was in development during a recent investor meeting. The parent company of 2K Games stated that this year’s version will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. However, a potential port to the PS3 and Xbox 360 was not mentioned.

Visual Concepts is expected to team up again with Yuke’s in the production of “WWE 2K15.” The tandem should have the full year this time around to work on the project, which should give them plenty of time to add the aforementioned features.
