WWE Hall of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin will grace the cover of this year’s WWE video game. In an article on WWE.com, the Texas Rattlesnake offered his thoughts on following 2K’s recent selections, John Cena (2K15) and The Rock (2K14).
“I’ve had the privilege of working with 2K to support the WWE 2K franchise, and now I’m absolutely honored to serve as the WWE 2K16 cover Superstar,” said Stone Cold Steve Austin. “No disrespect to the previous and extremely deserving WWE 2K cover Superstars – Dwayne ‘The Rock®’ Johnson and John Cena® – but it’s about time the franchise raised some hell with yours truly on the cover. I look forward to injecting a dose of ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ into this year’s game and overall campaign.”
WWE 2K16 will launch on October 27, 2015 for PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360. 2K promises it will have the largest roster ever in a WWE game, with over 120 playable characters.
