Not sure if posted yet, if so I apologize...

The era of THQ wrestling games is over. Sources have indicated to IGN that the WWE game franchise will be sold to Take Two, parent company of 2K. Terms of the sale are unknown at this time, as details have not been finalized. These negotiations appear to have taken place outside THQ's formal auction process.

This news comes as THQ a.ssets have been divided among several different publishers, pending court approval.

For more on WWE games, and THQ's future, stay tuned to IGN - official announcements are expected as soon as tomorrow.

No bro I didn't mean to come off like that...I was just letting you know in case you didn't...that the WWE sold it because they removed the license from THQ... (Partially due to THQ owing them $45 Million dollars)

Don't know how I feel about this.

2K basketball =

2K baseball =

Where the f*ck is AKI when you need them? We want a next-gen No Mercy.

Here is what 2K needs to do, don't use VC,Bluepoint etc, let them do their MLB,NBA games.

Go make a deal with AKI( now called Sophy or some sh*t like that) and let them dev the new games, they been eager to create a new wrestling game.

Vince would never sell it to EA, they went and got with UFC
so he had to go with 2K.
