    Kinda funny that they have not announced Cena yet considering the limited edition version is a Cena special.

    I really wish they would stop with all the old school wrestlers in the current game. If they got rid of them, they could stop missing out current stars.
    The best idea would be to make the main WWE game bi-annual with updates through the games life. Do like some games do and give certain characters free and charge for others.

    Then, produce a second game which could be a legends type game, crossing multiple eras. Its been kinda done before, but had a totally different game mechanic to the main series. Just use the same game engine, and replace the characters. Have to development teams, one working on each game.
    This way, for current generation fans, they have a game with people they want to see, and old school fans who have minimal interest in modern WWE, they have a game that appeals more to them.

    I used to buy games like this and the F1 games every year, but I rarely buy them now because you are essentially buying the same game every year with very little difference. Changing to bi-annual with updates could actually generate more income even if they didn’t do a legends game as well.

    A lot of games franchises are seeing sales suffer with releasing annually as the games end up feeling rushed and are often full of bugs that have to be patched. It’s one of the main reasons Ubisoft decided to skip a year on the Assassins Creed franchise.
