Fans of WWE were shocked to hear that Austin Aries was released from the company earlier this week. Due to this, people are hoping he stays on the WWE 2K18 roster.
WWE 2K18 does not come out until October 17th, and people are wondering if he has a chance to stay in the game. Aries is a popular wrestler and it will be sad if he were to be removed from the game.
Although 2K Games has yet to respond on the matter, there is a chance he can stay in the game. Cody Rhodes left WWE in May 2016 and his Stardust character was still added in WWE 2K17 which came out later that year.
Usually the roster for WWE games are finalized in April so Austin Aries should have made the cut since he was not released until July. This means you can play as him for one last time, until you will have to create him.
