Pending the court's approval of the agreement, Take-Two will publish future WWE video games that will be developed by Yuke's, which made THQ-published WWE titles for more than a decade.
Take-Two will hire THQ's WWE game production staff of about 20 employees, and form new agreements with WWE and Yuke's to produce future WWE games. The price paid by Take-Two for THQ's WWE assets was not disclosed in the court documents. Since Take-Two has not yet formed new contracts with WWE or Yuke's, it remains unclear if the company will release a WWE game in 2013 or if it will have the exclusive rights to the WWE license.
So this is a huge bummer. Remember when people were happy about 2k buying the license? Maybe they should have actually wanted EA? Maybe this had to be?
Either way, I continue to avoid wrestling games going forward. Good work all around guys.
