2K Sports Gets Into the Rasslin' Business

WWE '14 hits shelves this fall.

We followed the slow and tragic decline of THQ here at PixlBit over the past year, and a few of us talk about it at length in the current Darksiders episodes of Backloggers Anonymous. As you no doubt know, the core THQ properties were auctioned off recently, but two franchises were noticeably absent from the big sell-off. Those would be the aforementioned Darksiders and the WWE license, which THQ had held the rights to since the release of WWF Smackdown for the PlayStation in 2000. We now know the fate of the WWE video game license, and it has fallen into the hands of 2K Sports. So what does that mean for the gamer itching to simulate Cena vs. Punk in a TLC match?

Darksiders II Delayed

Vigil holds the game back a couple months for polishing.

Darksiders was the definition of a sleeper hit. The 2010 release started off slow, but gradually built up steam over the course of the year, gaining an appreciative fanbase for the “Zelda for adults” approach that the game took. While it wasn’t a smash hit, it did well enough to warrant a sequel, which has been gaining hype thanks to its position as a Wii U launch title. Today we’ve learned that the game is getting a small delay, and even though it’s easy for people to speculate that it may have something to do with the recent layoffs at Vigil, the reality is much better news.
