2K Announces John Cena as WWE 2K15 Cover Wrestler
John Cena says you can't see him, but he's right there on the cover of yet another wrestling title, WWE 2K15.
2K has announced John Cena will be gracing the cover for WWE 2K15. This marks the 20th WWE game Yukes has made with the company and its 29 wrestling title under its belt. Cena of course being WWE's go-to-guy when it comes to leadership, image and commitment, recently winning the WWE World Heavyweight title for the 15 time since debuting in the company in 2002. He has also holds the Make-a-Wish Foundation record of visiting over 400 children with life-threatening illnesses, which is more so than any other celebrity or athlete.
“It is truly an honor and privilege to serve as the WWE 2K15 cover Superstar,” said Cena. “2K has a tremendous history of sports simulation games and cover athletes, including Michael Jordan, Kevin Durant, LeBron James and of course, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. I look forward to carrying the flag for WWE 2K15 and introducing the incredible next-generation of WWE gaming to the WWE Universe.”
At the same time, Cena has already been on the cover of many WWE Smackdown vs. Raw titles, which was the previous name of Yuke's WWE 2K series until 2012. He was on the cover of WWE Smackdown vs. Raw for the years of 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011. We feel that there are plenty of other wrestlers, such as Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Dolph Ziggler, Wade Barrett, Chris Jericho, Cesaro or even Brock Lesnar, who should get the chance to shine. Hopefully, 2K Games decides to make the cover reversibly like it did with WWE 2K14. This cover also unveils the new official logo for World Wrestling Entertainment.
WWE 2K15 will be hitting the ring on Oct. 28 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
