2K Games “stepping up investment in the WWE 2K franchise”, re-haul coming?

Good news for wrestling fans as the people behind WWE 2K games are looking to invest more into their games.

In an interview with Gamesindustry.biz, 2K Games President David Ismailer mentioned a change of focus towards their wrestling games IP.

“We’re looking to expand and grow our portfolio, whether it’s internally developing more products, or it’s adding more long-term partnerships to our 2K product line,”

As for specific areas where 2K will be applying these general priorities, Ismailer described China and the mobile market as “huge priorities” for the company. It’s also stepping up investment in the WWE 2K franchise, and hopes to broaden the offerings coming out of Firaxis.

WWE games have been getting the rehash treatment for a while now and interest in the franchise seems to be at an all time low.

More investment and attention to the franchise could work wonders, I still remember how great wrestling games like Here comes the Pain and No Mercy were in the early 2000s.

What improvements would you like to see in a future WWE game? Let us know in the comments.
