When the first six superstars/diva were announced for the WWE 2K16 roster, the game’s developer promised it would have the “largest roster ever” in a WWE videogame. Not everyone was buying into the tagline, so the devs took to instagram to offer some clarification, stating the 120+ playable Superstars and Divas will all have unique models.
“For anyone doubting the ”largest roster ever” tag line for WWE 2k16, let us assure you, that we are bringing over 120 unique playable Superstars and Divas to the game. Now when we say unique, we’re not counting the repeats like 5 John Cena models, or 8 Mark Henry models. As you can imagine, these models are keeping us crazy busy, but it is worth it. #wwe2k16largestrostereve”
Due to the practice of releasing playable characters post launch as DLC, it is no surprise that some would assume the 120+ player count also includes whatever downloadable characters they may release. A tweet was sent out from the devs’ official twitter account to put an end to those assumptions. The 120+ unique models are on the disc and will ship with the game.
Just so we're clear, the 120+ unique Superstar/Diva models we mentioned last week are all shipping with the game. #WWE2k16LargestRosterEver

This is great news for those who were worried, that they may only end up with half that number come launch day.
WWE 2K16 will launch on October 27, 2015 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
