I recently was at the WWE '13 press event in Los Angeles and got to talk to the Senior Producer of the game, Arnaud Frey. When we talked about how frustrating it must be for them to have to keep working with an old engine, he let it slip that they're working on a WWE game for the next gen consoles. He says that next gen systems will be announced at the 2013 E3 and that the first WWE next gen game will be released in two years (WWE '14 will be released on current systems). Here is the link to the video interview where he says all that: http://www.jeuxvideomagazine.com/act...geles-a1061370 (the part about next gen starts at 5:23).

Even if the 720 releases at that time, next Fall is still gonna see lots of 360/PS3 games, including GTA V.

Why can't GTA V come out this upcoming Spring?

Even so, those games are just going to get Nextbox/PS4 releases as well most likely. Better framerates and textures most likely, right?

Yes you're right. I don't think THQ will be there in 2 years.

I really hope someone decent get's the WWE license once THQ tanks, but I assume it would be either EA or Acti that would mop it up.

I think the next-gen consoles would probably get ports of the PC version rather than PS3/360.

SHOCKING NEWS.

Will someone please give Syn Sophia a proper budget for a fighting game. It doesn't even need to be a wrestling game, Def Jam was cool as hell. All of the home console ones from the previous gen.

They could start from scratch and I still wouldn't care, they'll never top No Mercy/Virtual Pro Wrestling 2. WWE All Stars seemed pretty good but THQ shut down that development group right?

I thought the old Aki wrestling team was scattered to the winds. I know some are at yukes, but the majority are employed elsewhere.

Yukes can make a competent wrestling game. I thought both Wrestle Kingdom games were really good evolutions of the Day of Reckoning engine and were fun games. I'd really like to see that engine used in a new game. There seems to be some intervening factor with the WWE games that keeps them from evolving.

The problem isn't Yuke's, it's the people at THQ thinking they know how to design a game. The SmackDown games were great up until Here Comes the Pain where Yuke's still had creative freedom.

From what I've heard from various people at the event, people at Yuke's don't think too highly of the Wii U...

Why mention his real name? I'm sure if you told him that you were going to go straight to Neogaf to post about it, he wouldn't have told you or asked not to mention his name/position.

edit- i f'd up and did something i often complain about. it's time to go to bed. :(

As far as I know, there is no WWE '13 for the Wii U. I don't know if next year's game will be released on the Wii U though.

No Vita version either. They were pretty high on putting those games on PSP. A Vita version would look amazing considering what they could do within the limits of the PSP.

I really don't think they they give a shit about the wiiu or the vita

I wish Yukes released one last UFC game on the Vita...I've heard good things about UFC 2010 for PSP...I'm sure they could've worked wonders with porting UFC 3. Still waiting for UFC 2010 PSP to drop in price, geez still expensive.

I doubt EA releases a Vita port of their UFC game. :(
