The release date for “WWE 2K18” has been set, and now we officially know what wrestling Superstar will don the cover. It’ll be former Davenport West student turned WWE star, Seth Rollins! Fans can look for the new game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 starting on October 17th. Right now, there’s no firm date for the PC version, but if history holds true, you can expect to find it a couple of months later in early ’18.
Rollins’ comments about the honor were coated with his typical confidence. He said, "As the WWE 2K18 cover Superstar and franchise ambassador, it is my incredible honor and mission to ensure this game will truly BE LIKE NO ONE — a calling card perfect for everything I stand for — as it sets forth on its own unique path." Like…what else was he going to say?
With this honor, Rollins joins and elite group of WWE Superstars. Past cover warriors have included “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock, John Cena, and Brock Lesnar. The reviews have yet to roll in, but we can only hope that the in-ring action tweaks continue their positive up-swing, and the “My Career” mode goes deeper into what single-player fans have enjoyed about the game over the years.
