Editor's Note: The context in which John Cena said the game looked unreal was as in really impressive. He raved about the game's visuals when we spoke with him. Please do not misconstrue the headline as something he said in a negative tone, that would be out of context and incorrect.
WWE 2K15 will be making its next-generation debut on the PS4 and Xbox One later this year. The cover superstar of this year's iteration is none other than John Cena. It's quite fitting and frankly, no other superstar should be gracing this year's cover than Cena.
John Cena is by far the most recognizable, popular WWE superstar today. He's one of the hardest workers, and biggest advocates for WWE that we've have ever seen. Examiner.com was fortunate enough to catch up with John Cena to speak with him about his experience working on WWE 2K15 as well as how impressed he was by the game's single-player campaign, Career Mode.
"Here’s the thing, the game comes out in October. We’ve been able to see a lot more than anyone else [and] the gameplay looks unreal. It looks ridiculously [good], it’s something if someone else was playing it, I would [stop and] watch, that’s how good it is.
"I thrive on games that have consistent accomplishment, so I love the fact that career mode starts in the performance center and ends in the Hall of Fame. [Career Mode] has enough accomplishments to keep you playing and playing, so even if you just play solo, you’ll enjoy the game for a long period of time. I’m really looking forward to it [releasing]," Cena said.
The Career Mode in WWE 2K15 really does seem very, very well done, and fans will be surprised with how fleshed out the single-player campaign is. John Cena knows better than anyone else about working your way up from the bottom of the WWE ranks to the top of the company. We asked him where he currently lies on the spectrum of development talent to Hall of Fame superstar.
"I’m still in the mix man. I’m not in the Hall of Fame yet, which means I’m not quite done," Cena humbly said.
Sure there are some who are still Cena haters, but the guy is humble, well-spoken and works his tail off day-in and day-out. If you would see his schedule on a day-to-day basis, you wouldn't believe it's real. You would wonder how anyone could possibly operate as gracefully as he does. How can you not like a guy like that?
Cena aside, WWE 2K15 certainly looks like it's bringing a very strong single-player experience, in addition to highly improved visuals. Fans of the franchise will be very happy with what they see, come October. WWE 2K15 will be launching on Oct. 28 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
