2K Games has announced today that WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin will be the cover superstar for this years WWE 2K16 video game title. As one of the icons who shaped one of the greatest eras in WWE history, “The Attitude Era”, it raises a lot of questions for what 2K Games have up their sleeves this year. We already know this game will feature the largest number of playable charcaters with the first six having been revealed, but the addition of Stone Cold on the cover can only mean Attitude Era bonuses.
“I’ve had the privilege of working with 2K to support the WWE 2K franchise, and now I’m absolutely honored to serve as the WWE 2K16 cover Superstar,” saidStone Cold Steve Austin. “No disrespect to the previous and extremely deserving WWE 2K cover Superstars – Dwayne ‘The Rock®’ Johnson and John Cena® – but it’s about time the franchise raised some hell with yours truly on the cover. I look forward to injecting a dose of ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ into this year’s game and overall campaign.”
WWE 2K16 is currently in development for Xbox One and Xbox 360, as well as the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems and is scheduled for release on October 27.
