Take-Two to inherit WWE franchise

Postby WAR-MACHINE666 » 14 Feb 2013, 01:33

No No No! Yukes have had their day, this series needs a new team and a new engine desperately. Aki would be my choice along with another team so they could have a 2 year cycle like COD. 12 months is not long enough

The thing is that THQ had a licence contract that the WWE games would be developed by Yukes, and when Take-Two acquired the contract, that bit of it is still legally binding. So they're probably gonna let Yukes carry on with what they was doing, maybe with slight suggestions from 2K Sports, and then do a complete rehaul after they have renegotiate the terms of the contract and have some money in the WWE pot.

Yukes is fine been as WWE 14 will be the last WWE game before moving onto next gen. Sure WWE 15 will still be on current gen systems but the focus will be the new systems. I just hope next gen we see better than what we have now.

I agree, the next gen will give Yukes(if they still get to work on the games) a great reason to introduce a brand new engine.

Yukes are crap now they haven't done a decent WWE game since here comes the pain back on PS2 a new engine for next gen wont make the games any better, the engine this gen has been fine it's just Yukes has been crap with the exicution and ideas, sure WWE 13 was much better than it has been previously this gen but that doesn't mean it was great either, Attitude mode was fun while it lasted the rest was the same crap as always.

WWE allstars was a much much better game and no Yukes involvment in that at all, I was hoping with Take-Two getting the license they would get their own dev team on it i guess not, with Yukes just more crap WWE games to come i fear.

I'm 99% sure that next gen means s**t when coming to this series. The current gen didn't exactly bring forth much stuff in terms of something fresh.
