TakeTwo have revealed the cover star for WWE 2K16, and it is a surprising stone cold blast from WWE’s past. Yep, WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin makes the cover of wrestling’s answer to FIFA, after his sporadic appearances in the Wrestlings showcase franchise over the past couple of years.
“I’ve had the privilege of working with 2K to support the WWE 2K franchise, and now I’m absolutely honored to serve as the WWE 2K16 cover Superstar,” said Stone Cold Steve Austin. “No disrespect to the previous and extremely deserving WWE 2K cover Superstars – Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and John Cena – but it’s about time the franchise raised some hell with yours truly on the cover. I look forward to injecting a dose of ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ into this year’s game and overall campaign.”
Check out the packshot below, and be sure to keep it pinned to GodisaGeek, as we’ll be on WWE 2K16 like a Stone Cold Stunner when the game launches on October 30th.
