Update: In a statement received from IGN, 2K Games has confirmed future WWE games will still be developed by Yukes.
Although it was rumored a few weeks ago by IGN, it has now been officially announced that Take Two will acquire the WWE Games license and might develop WWE ’14
It was reported by Bloomberg earlier today. Take Two will take over developmental duties for WWE ’14 (or WWE 2K14).
According to the report, Take Two will hire THQ employees to work on future WWE titles. WWE and Yuke’s contracts with THQ are to be terminated and both companies will be allowed to negotiate new contract agreements with Take Two.
It’s unknown if this will give Take Two time to release WWE ’14 game later this year, but it’s good to know that the news is now official.
