2K has announced texas rattlesnake himself, Stone Cold Steve Austin, will be the cover Superstar for WWE 2K16.
“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,” Stone Cold Steve Austin shared. “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.”
Stone Cold Steve Austin has had quite the career at WWE as he’s regarded as one of the most popular Superstars to ever grace the squared circle. Austin held a total of 21 championships throughout his career and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame back in 2009.
“Stone Cold Steve Austin’s iconic style, unmistakable personality and worldwide reverence from the WWE Universe make him the ideal fit for WWE 2K16,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “Not only will Austin grace the video game’s cover, but he’s involved in shaping its creative direction. Through his numerous contributions, inclusion on the largest roster in franchise history and the game’s to-be-announced features, WWE 2K16 is certain to put everyone on notice.”
Just last month, we were introduced to WWK 2K16's first six wrestlers, which included Superstars Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, and more.
