Developer Visual Concepts and wrestler Seth Rollins have a lot in common. They’re both the architects and the future of the WWE. The only difference is that Visual Concepts handles the 2K video game side of things, not the actual wrestling.
As it turns out, the developer’s idea for the future of the WWE 2K series has a lot of WWE Superstars and Divas. In an Instagram post, Visual Concepts revealed that this year’s game will feature more than 120 characters; WWE 2K15 topped out at 67 unique models. Keep in mind that this number isn’t bolstered by alternate outfits and whatnot; it’s indicative of actual wrestlers and managers.
Right now, it’s unclear where these extra wrestlers will come from. In the past year, a fair amount of key talent left the WWE (CM Punk, AJ Lee, Alberto del Rio, and Batista to name a few). It’s likely the roster will be expanded by digging deeper into NXT and by including more classic performers. Regardless, this is some (sweet chin) music to anyone who believes variety is the spice of life.
