WWE 2K1 Canceled, New Game Coming? Update: New Game On The Way

Update: Looks like there is indeed a new WWE game coming. Click below the jump for details.

Last year’s WWE 2k20 was rife with bugs and missing features. Is it any wonder we won’t be seeing a follow-up?


As of now, WWE and 2K games has confirmed that there will be no new installment of the WWE 2k franchise this year. This is no surprise as the future of the series was in the air even before the COVID-19 outbreak. WWE 2k20, the most recent installment, was the first developed solely by Visual Concepts, as opposed to co-developing alongside longtime franchise developer Yukes. As such, it launched with sub par graphics, several bugs, and missing features. Things got so bad that at one point Sony issued refunds to anyone who bought the digital version of the game from the PlayStation Network Store, and a bug caused the game to be unplayable on New Years day of this year. Even now, several months later, and after several patches, the game still has unresolved issues that have yet to be addressed. The rumor floating around was that WWE 2k21 will be canceled in favor of a new non-simulation WWE title. At least half of this rumor is true. As for the other half, WWE CFO Frank Riddick announced that they will be sharing details of the franchise’s future this coming Monday at 10 am EST. For now, we’ll see what this will entail. This rumor was confirmed this morning by WWE and 2K games. So while WWE2k will get a year off, we will be getting a new WWE game this year. For now, if 2k wishes to continue working with the WWE license, it’s clear that they will have to go back to the drawing board if and when they produce the next entry in the WWE 2k franchise. In the meantime, fans looking for some non-WWE squared circle gaming can check out Fire Pro Wrestling World on Steam and PS4, Chikara Action Arcade on Steam, and the upcoming Retromania Wrestling coming to Switch, Steam, PS4, and Xbox One this July.

Deep Silver….er….THQ Nordic Acquires Novalogic’s Back Catalog.

novalogic

Before Call of Duty, Rainbow Six, Battlefield, and your other favorite military shooter, there was Delta Force. Few games before it and few games since have had the depth of gameplay and realism that Delta Force had. Yesterday, the company formerly known as Deep Silver has acquired the Novalogic catalog. This means that Deep Silver, now known as THQ Nordic, has the rights to not only the Delta Force series, but Commanche, Armored Fist, Joint Operations, and even the 2000 space-flight simulator, Tachyon: The Fringe. The last release from the company was 2009’s Delta Force Xtreme 2 (Pictured). Deep Silver has been making some big moves after acquiring most of THQ’s properties in 2013 including Saint’s Row, Darksiders, and Red Faction. They renamed themselves THQ Nordic this past august. With the acquisition of Novalogic, hopefully this means we’ll see some new Delta Force games.

The game will feature cutscenes, monsters, and dialogue based on the original series, and will also feature unlockable characters. The game will be coming to Xbox One and PS4 next year. If the gameplay can keep in line with the graphics, MMPR:MB will be an excellent flashback to our childhood.

San Diego Comic Con 2016 – Marvel to Re-Release Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2

Marvel Ultimate Alliance

At the San Diego Comic Con this past week, Marvel producer Mike Jones revealed that the last gen hits Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2 are coming to Xbox One, PC, and PS4 this Tuesday. The games will be available digitally, with both games carrying a price tag of $40 each or $60 together. The games will feature graphical and UI tweaks, along with other features that will help it fit on current generation systems.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance and its sequel were a pair of action RPGS that put players in the shoes of many of Marvel’s finest, including Captain America, Spider-Man, the X-men, and the Fantastic Four. The first game had players battling Dr Doom and the masters of Evil, while the second game’s plot was inspired by 2006’s Civil War crossover. The games featured 4 player co-op (both local and online), unlockable costumes, and tons of cameos from throughout the Marvel Universe. If you never played these games before, or if you want to revisit them, now is a great time to do so. Who knows? We might even be seeing MUA 3 before long.

DC Universe Coming to Xbox One….Wait WHAT!?

dcuniverse

5 years ago, Sony Online Entertainment released the free-to-play MMORPG DC Universe Online on PC and PS3. It launched alongside the PS4 as well. Since then, SOE has changed its name to Daybreak Studios, and evidently broke off ties with Sony. To that end, they figured why not share the wealth and allow Xbox One players to get in on the comic book based action. For the uninitiated, DC Universe Online allows characters to create an original character, and join one of 6 major DC heroes and villains and tackle a series of quests all around the DC Universe. There is plenty enough content on its own, however players can spend extra dime on various add-ons such as expansions and new powersets. Also, PS4 players will be able to play alongside PC gamers, and the game will receive a new episode based on DC’s upcoming Legends of Tomorrow tv series. You can learn more about the upcoming features as the game celebrates its 5-year anniversary here.

Sunset Overdrive, an Xbox One exclusive title developed by Insomniac (Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank), is one of many new gaming franchises set to make its debut next console generation.

Sunset Overdrive, an Xbox One exclusive title developed by Insomniac (Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank), is one of many new gaming franchises set to make its debut next console generation.

Like it or not, this next generation of consoles will soon be upon us. With the Wii U having been out for little over half a year, some will say it’s already here. The Wii U, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 will present players with dozens of sure to be classic titles, including several new franchises. Lets not forget however that there were several classic franchises that came from this generation. So now is a perfect time to take a look at the classic franchises that were spawned this past generation. To qualify, a franchise has to have it’s first title released on the Wii, Xbox 360, or Playstation 3, so you won’t see the Elder Scrolls or Halo in this list. Also, a game has to have more than one title in it’s series, so that’s why you won’t see Mirror’s Edge here.
