After recently revealing John Cena being on the cover of the much awaited franchise of WWE 2K15 on Monday Night RAW a couple of weeks ago, the company has now roped in WCW Legend Sting to feature in the game.
2K today announced the long-awaited debut of Sting in WWE 2K15, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE video game franchise. Sting will be available for those who pre-order the game at any participating retailer for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, as well as the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment systems. WWE 2K15 is currently scheduled for release on 28 October, 2014 in North America and 31 October internationally.
“We’re eager to introduce fans to Sting in a compelling new way, while debuting the next-generation of gaming in the WWE 2K franchise,” said 2K VP marketing Chris Snyder in a statement. “Pre-ordering WWE 2K15 is the ultimate way to embrace the history and individuality of Sting’s impressive career.”
One of the most popular and revered competitors in WCW history, Sting will be featured in WWE 2K15 through two unique playable characters: the mysterious, ghost-like persona with trademark black and white face paint who was the face of WCW during the “Monday Night War” era, as well as his earlier look, sporting bright colors and a blond, flattop hairstyle.
“The only thing for sure about Sting is nothing’s for sure, except my debut in WWE 2K15,” said Sting. “I’m honored to have my legacy immortalized in a video game. It’s showtime!”
Making his WCW debut in 1991, Sting generated worldwide recognition for his unique presence and in-ring prowess. Across more than a decade, he amassed eight WCW championships and competed against many notable rivals, including“Hollywood” Hulk Hogan, the New World Order (nWo), Vader, Rick Rude, The Four Horsemen and Ric Flair, among other legends.
