While most game developers and publishers took the stage at E3 2016 to announce their upcoming titles, 2K decided to reveal WWE 2K17 characters by creating a huge wall painting with the help of Rob Schamberger.
Fans easily identified John Cena, the Ultimate Warrior and Sasha Banks. According to Tech Times, these WWE superstars are playable characters in the highly anticipated video game.
Gamers who followed all WWE video games are aware that the Four Horsewomen of NXT have never been featured in WWE 2K titles. However, the arrival of Sasha Banks in WWE 2K17 also hints the possibility of playing as Charlotte, Bayley and Becky Lynch in the game.
With the latest clues, there are now four superstars confirmed for WWE 2K17 roster. In an earlier report from Wrestling Inc, it was also revealed that retired wrestler Goldberg will be a special pre-order character. Goldberg will be available in two appearances — one with black trunks and with black-and-white trunks from WWC.
In other news, Goldberg also revealed in an interview that he has plans of making a comeback to WWE. The former professional wrestler said that his intentions were purely from his own thought and wasn’t a part of promotion or a motivation from being a part of WWE 2K17.
“I know this is a very big step for me in that I’ve been away for a long period of time and I never really ever saw myself being involved with them again, but along came my wonderful son and it opened up the possibility of doing something with the WWE again,” he said. Goldberg added that he would like his son to be aware of his father’s profession in the past.
WWE 2K17 has kept other details a bit vague or rather has decided to make it a step-by-step tease for the fans. As of WWE 2K17 is still unknown but it will likely be available on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 in October.
