- We noted before that the first four Superstars were confirmed for WWE 2K15 this past week at E3 in Los Angeles – Bray Wyatt, John Cena, Hulk Hogan and Cesaro. More news on WWE 2K15 is now coming out of E3 via GameInformer.com and Polygon.com. Here are some notes:

* Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, Naomi, Cameron and AJ Lee are also now confirmed. So the updated roster is: Bray Wyatt, John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Cesaro, Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, Cameron, Naomi and AJ Lee.

* 2K Sports is promising a much more polished game. One area that will be improved is motion captures. WWE actually sends an “official ring setter-upper” to make sure everything is by the book when motion captures are being filmed.

* WWE 2K15 will feature at least five times the animations of any previous WWE game.

* Visual Concepts is working on the game in a major role and one of their new goals is for gameplay to have a pacing similar to that of a real WWE event with matches having less of a free-for-all tone.

* Yukes is also working on the game but Visual Concepts is doing most of the work.

* Superstars will seem a lot more life-like in their movements and facial expressions.

* Visual currently has 90% of the WWE roster scanned in.

* Visual Concepts is also improving the commentary. Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler have already recorded about 35 hours of new lines, most of them recorded together.

    Will Cm punk be in the game?

  • Kristoffer Binder

    need wrestlers to age/ retire and injuries to carry over from show to show at least somewhat..

  • Hey

    I always thought EA should have gotten the WWE rights to make a game.

  • Jay

    Granted, it may take a year or two but the fact the care & are actually changing it, is very good.

  • Peter

    I’d love NXT to be involved and I also wouldn’t mind manager mode to come back

  • Matthew Farrell

    “Visual Concepts is working on the game in a major role and one of their new goals is for gameplay to have a pacing similar to that of a real WWE event with matches having less of a free-for-all tone.”
    So I gather it will be more simulation based, similar to AKI’s N64 games? Sounds like this is shaping up to be the best WWE game in a while, if not ever. All it needs now is a good career mode
