WWE Hall of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin will grace the cover of this year’s WWE video game. In an article on WWE.com, the Texas Rattlesnake offered his thoughts on following 2K’s recent selections, John Cena (2K15) and The Rock (2K14).
“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.”
WWE 2K16 will launch on October 27, 2015 for PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360. 2K promises it will have the largest roster ever in a WWE game, with over 120 playable characters.

When the first six superstars/diva were announced for the WWE 2K16 roster, the game’s developer promised it would have the “largest roster ever” in a WWE videogame. Not everyone was buying into the tagline, so the devs took to instagram to offer some clarification, stating the 120+ playable Superstars and Divas will all have unique models.
“For anyone doubting the ”largest roster ever” tag line for WWE 2k16, let us assure you, that we are bringing over 120 unique playable Superstars and Divas to the game. Now when we say unique, we’re not counting the repeats like 5 John Cena models, or 8 Mark Henry models. As you can imagine, these models are keeping us crazy busy, but it is worth it. #wwe2k16largestrostereve”
Due to the practice of releasing playable characters post launch as DLC, it is no surprise that some would assume the 120+ player count also includes whatever downloadable characters they may release. A tweet was sent out from the devs’ official twitter account to put an end to those assumptions. The 120+ unique models are on the disc and will ship with the game.
Just so we're clear, the 120+ unique Superstar/Diva models we mentioned last week are all shipping with the game. #WWE2k16LargestRosterEver
