WWE 2K15 is a professional wrestling video game developed by Yuke's & Visual Concepts and published by 2K Sports for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One. It is the second game published by 2K Sports since Take-Two gained the license from THQ in a bankruptcy filing. It is the second game in the WWE 2K series. It was released on October 28, 2014 in North America and October 31, 2014 in Europe. The release date for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version was pushed back to November 18, 2014.


Yuke's Senior Producer, Arnaud Frey, revealed at SummerSlam Axxess 2012, that they were currently developing a "next-generation WWE game". With 2K's acquisition of the WWE license in early 2013, it's not certain whether Yuke's work carried over into the production of WWE 2K15.

WWE 2K15 is its first attempt as next-generation game for PS4 and Xbox One. WWE Superstar Justin Gabriel released a photo of himself being "scanned" for what appears to be the Eco-Motion engine used in NBA 2K14's next generation game. Ronnie Singh, 2K's community manager described the Eco-Motion engine as follows, "One example of the Eco-Motion Engine in action is the new fluid nature of player animations. Gone are the days of pre-canned animations that must play out exactly as they were mocapped. Now, players adjust their movements based on the environment around them." This shakes up the WWE games series as the game has previously been nothing but pre-canned animations.

Former WWE NXT star Chris Hero released a photo on his Instagram account of himself in a motion-capturing suit, presumably capturing animations for WWE 2K15. Ironically, he would not be playable until WWE 2K18.

WWE performers, Justin Gabriel and Big Show also posted pictures of themselves on a face scanner which means they are possibly confirmed to appear in the game.

It was confirmed that CM Punk would be in the game as well.

At E3 2014 it was confirmed that John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan, Cesaro, Roman Reigns, AJ Lee, Sting, Naomi and Hulk Hogan (Retro) would all be in the game.

This would also mark Sting's first ever WWE game although he has appeared in other video games like Showdown: Legends of Wrestling and WCW Mayhem. Following the announcement, it was announced that WWE were looking for Sting-lookalikes for a project including an orchestra.

It has now also been confirmed that Cameron and Darren Young would join the others.

Due to the releases on 12 June 2014, Brodus Clay, Jinder Mahal, Drew McIntyre, Aksana, Curt Hawkins, JTG, Yoshi Tatsu, Camacho, Brian Kendrick, Evan Bourne, Mason Ryan, Raquel Diaz, Kaitlyn, Sin Cara or any of the released talents do not appear in the game due to them been released just 4–5 months before 2K released the game. Ironically, Vicki Guerrero appears exclusively as a manager, but not on the PlayStation 4/Xbox One exclusive. Some talents that have not been released during 2014, like Alexa Bliss, Alicia Fox, Bayley, Charlotte, Diego, Fernando, Heath Slater, Layla, Mojo Rawley, Rosa Mendes, Sasha Banks, Tyler Breeze, & Zack Ryder were also not playable. Also while the next few are not playable, they have been mentioned by commentary if you listen very carefully; Arn Anderson, Billy Kidman, Bret Hart, Chavo Guerrero, Doink the Clown, Eddie Guerrero, Gangrel, Goldberg, George Steele, Haku, Harley Race, Hercules, The Hurricane, Kamala, Lita, Mick Foley, Mr. Perfect, Roddy Piper, Scott Hall, Scott Steiner, Torrie Wilson, Vladimir Kozlov, X-Pac, Yokozuna, Zeus & more (Like for example, "Chris Jericho would've won the match if it weren't for Scott Steiner, etc.).
