Japanese developer Yuke’s will no longer be developing WWE wrestling games for 2K, including the upcoming WWE 2K20. Yuke’s has been developing WWE/WWF games for nearly 20 years.
2K confirmed that starting with WWE 2K20 and going forward, Visual Concepts will be the sole developer of WWE wrestling games. Visual Concepts served as co-developer on the WWE 2K series starting with WWE 2K14.
2K gave the following statement to IGN:
“WWE 2K20 will be developed by Visual Concepts, who have worked with Yuke’s on the development of the series since WWE 2K14. As we’ve continued to invest in the WWE 2K franchise, we’ve seen the Visual Concepts team deisplay incredible passion, talent and commitment to the future of the series. We thank Yuke’s for their years of partnership and are excited to see what the Visual Concepts team brings to the franchise moving forward.”
