WWE 2K16 Will feature Over 120 unique Wrestlers

wwe 2k16 roster

Yukes and 2K games are aiming to create the largest WWE roster in video game history yet. They're planning to bring 120 unique wrestling superstars to the roster and they already made it clear that the 120 won't count for five assorted versions of golden boy John Cena. If the whole idea sounds too far from realuty, just take a look at the WWE 2K Instagram account, where they state...



They have a poster picture of the comparison between the approaching WWE 2K16 and last year's WWE 2K15. You can check out below.

The post has sent a lot of gamers into a frenzy; overexcited, unbelieving and enthused about the expectation of WWE 2K16. Many fell out into an dispute over the lack of variety in last year's roster, while others were just satisfied knowing that the several Triple H clones aren't being counted toward the total roster count.

Fans of the series want a a lot of WWE's departed wrestlers to return from their virtual retirement, including the likes of the Brooklyn Brawler - a reliably celebrated jobber who make his way to the ring in a destroyed shirt and unclean jeans, to more niche entertainers like Norman Smiley, best known for his dance moves. In the previous installments, there were a lot of unnecessary duplicates but WWE 2K16 will legitimately have the largest  roster ever.

Half the fanbase have also been requesting for the return of being able to create your WWE Divas. While the Divas existed in WWE 2K15, you weren't allowed to make your own Diva. This sent a tremble of bitter feelings through the wrestling gaming community.

On the upside, PC gamers were able to get a bit more mileage out of the roster when WWE 2K15 launched this past spring and modders got to work adding in old wrestlers or updating the old wrestlers with new attires and and whatnot. However, many console gamers are hoping they at least get the option of creating a Diva again, a feature that shouldn't have been removed in the first place.

There's gonna be a lot of current WWE Superstars and Divas, but that's not all, the game will also feature NXT wrestlers and Divas as well as a few legends from the yesteryear. It's also worth noting that the post said "playable" Superstars and Divas too. The large roster isn't just composed of managers, announcers and commentators.

At least were aware of just how many wrestlers will be playable. 120 is no small number to scoff at and we're sure that we'll lean more about the game once it draws near to release for home consoles and possibly PC. What do you think and who do you want see in WWE 2K16?

  3. Yeah but it'll probably include a ton of women wrestlers and NXT scrubs. If it's not packed with legends then I'm not getting it just like I didn't get 2K15. No one on their roster is worth a sht these days. Their show is not worth watching and hasn't been in over ten years.

  4. If they stick to those guns and they can pull off 120 different superstars in one game, this may be enough to turn things around and get people back into the WWE games again. I enjoyed 2K14 (and WWE '13, to a slightly lesser extent). 2K16 could be damn good at this rate.

    We need every diva on the roster, past divas, and create a diva. Especially Lita and Trish

    So, I guess this is supposed to be an apology for 2K15? That's all well and good, but I want to see Create an Arena in 2K16, where you can upload pics so we can make our own custom arenas. Have an old school template with hanging banners so we can do the Superstars, Wrestling Challenge, and PPV's. Bring back custom playlists so we can use our OWN music for entrances. What good is 120 models when you can't make ONE ARENA....

  14. It would be an extraordinary outstanding if this upcoming wwe 2k franchise are going to bring some new physics such as blood physics, euphoria(ragdoll in gta iv) and others

  15. I only want a better editor options: Better Create a Superstar, better create an entrance, the return of the create a Diva and Create a Championship... Those are why I never bought 2k15

    I hope that means the variants are on the same character and you just need to pick which one you want to play as. I despised having 8 different Undertakers and 5 different Triple Hs in my roster. It was extremely annoying and felt like pure laziness on their part to fill up characters spaces in the game.

  18. I couldn't care less how much of WWE's overwhelmingly mediocre roster is represented. WHAT ABOUT CAW SLOTS, CUSTOM MUSIC AND CREATION SUITE OPTIONS???

    ReplyDelete
  19. Add new legends like junkyard dog, ron Simmons,rick martel,tito santana,Harlem heat, demolition I'm tired of rock, austin,hbk and bret hart.

    ReplyDelete
  20. All the main nxt wrestlers should be included!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Will there be tag team turmoil and tag team elimination chamber matches.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm hopeful that we get as many current members of the WWE and NXT rosters as possible more so than legends.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really like this because it should allow for a good representation of current, NXT, and legends.
    I also dislike this in a way because I can't help but wonder how many are DLC and at what cost.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sounds great. I just hope most of the 120 are in the game when it releases instead of being DLC.

    Put in all the golden era wrestlers for crying out loud. There is no reason for any of them to be missing at this point. And a proper creation suite - 2K15 was severely lacking.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The big part about this that I like is that is says unique PLAYABLE models. (So wouldn't count Lana from last year or any announcers, etc)
