If Take Two allows Yukes to develop this year's WWE game, you can expect that the year after, they will want to release a title more consistent with their various NBA and NHL properties. Thus, expect WWE 2K15 to become a reality, and probably go into development long before WWE 14 is finished up at Yukes.
It will be seen as a risk by fans of THQ's WWE games, given the inevitable changes in gameplay and style - but we'll get to that in a moment - though something that, if Take Two want to put their own stamp on the wrestling game genre, they'll have to fling themselves headlong into.
