WWE 2K14 welcomes openly gay superstar Darren Young to this year's roster

WWE Superstar Darren Young made headlines yesterday after publicly coming out as a gay athlete, making his the first openly gay member of the active WWE roster. He's been congratulated by many of his peers for his courage and 2K Sports is among them, as they've formally announced that Young will be a part of the WWE 2K14 lineup.

The publisher took to the WWE 2K Twitter account (via Polygon) to post, "We'd like to congratulate [Darren Young] on his brave personal announcement and welcome him to the WWE2K14 roster!" WWE 2K14 will mark Young's series debut and he will likely be joined by his Prime Time Players tag team partner, Titus O'Neil.

The full roster for WWE 2K14 will be revealed tomorrow during a Twitch live stream from SummerSlam Axxess by Jim Ross, Jerry "The King" Lawler, and Intellectual Savior of the Masses and Mr. Money in the Bank, Damien Sandow.
