With the release of WWE 2K17 still a few months away, here’s what we know about the game thus far. We know that Brock Lesnar will grace the cover, which is a decision I’m guessing both 2K and WWE wish they had waited a few months before making. We know that Goldberg will be a huge part of the game as a pre-order exclusive. We know that John Cena, The Ultimate Warrior, and new WWE Women’s Champion (it feels so good to type that) Sasha Banks will be playable characters, and there will be an NXT Collector’s Edition that will feature the likes of Shinsuke Nakamura, Apollo Crews, and Nia Jax as well as a bunch of other stuff.
Now we know another little tidbit thanks to IGN, and it involves wrestling’s first family.
That’s right, for the second year in a row, you can play as Vince, Shane, and Stephanie McMahon in WWE 2K17 if your heart desires. Last year’s game had the McMahon’s featured prominently in the Stone Cold Steve Austin career mode. Stephanie also had her SummerSlam 2014 ring attire available from her match with Brie Bella and Mr. McMahon (at his current age) was also available as a manager.
The rest of the roster will be revealed in chunks every Tuesday over the next five weeks on IGN, so I’m looking forward to the game somehow excluding the rest of the Four Horsewomen again in favor of like, Bastion Booger or something.
