THQ's WWE franchise going to Take-Two?

  • Posted January 23rd, 2013 at 19:42 EDT by

With THQ on its way out, the future of one of gaming's major sports franchises, WWE, is in limbo. However, if rumors are true, Take-Two Interactive may be adding the wrestling series to its belt.

Sources have told IGN that Take-Two is set to acquire the rights to the WWE video games. Interestingly enough, Take-Two is not negotiating these rights through the formal auction process other THQ franchises and studios have undergone, but rather in private talks. The WWE Games Twitter account tweeted, "We don't have any details to share yet, but there WILL continue to be WWE Games. Stay tuned for more information and some exciting news!"

Take-Two Interactive is the parent company of 2K Sports who are responsible for the NBA 2K and MLB 2K games. With Electronic Arts' EA Sports reportedly not interested in WWE, 2K Sports appears to be the next logical possibility.

We'll keep you posted on any updates on the WWE franchise and other THQ news as it happens.
