WWE 2K16 is a professional wrestling video game developed by Yuke's and Visual Concepts, and is published by 2K Sports for the PlayStation 3 (PS3), PlayStation 4 (PS4), Xbox 360, and Xbox One. It is the seventeenth game in the WWE games series (third under the "WWE 2K" banner), and is the sequel to WWE 2K15.

The game was officially announced on June 16, 2015, with WWE and 2K revealing the first six Superstars and Divas, who would be included on the game's roster. On the same month, 2K announced on their social media accounts that WWE 2K16 will feature the "largest roster in the games history", featuring over 120 unique playable characters, nearly double the 67 that were in last year's game. A developer for the game then clarified that the 120 unique playable characters count does not include potential DLC, and that all 120 characters are included and will be released with the game.

On July 6, 2015, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin was announced as the cover superstar. On July 27, 2015, 2K announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 Terminator will be a playable character available as a pre-order exclusive. On July 27, 2015, 2K released the first official screenshot of the game, the Monday Night Raw announce table with John Bradshaw Layfield's cowboy hat sitting on it. On August 4, 2015, IGN revealed the first screenshots, gameplay and entrances for WWE 2K16 at Gamescom.
