New Details On WWE 2K15: NXT Career Mode, Legends

WWE 2K15 will be released on October 28th for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. You can pre-order the game now from

Based on what we’re hearing this week, WWE 2K15 will include an all-new career mode that will be similar to NBA 2K14, where gamers can create a character (or use an existing Superstar/Diva) and rise up the ranks from rookie to legend. This will involve paying your dues and making a name for yourself in NXT before making your way up to the main roster.

The career mode is expected to include several NXT talents for the first time ever, so we could see playable characters like NXT Champion Adrian Neville, NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte, Sami Zayn and Tyler Breeze.

Aside from the all-new career mode, it’s expected that the “30 Years of WrestleMania” mode will be returning.

Both Sting and Goldberg are rumored to be featured in the game as legends.

      Rising through the ranks in NXT to the main roster is a brilliant idea , makes me interested thats for sure , Career mode was the best thing in the WWE games :)

      • Matt Gallagher

        That’s the only thing I played back in svr 2007

        • brad

          Gm mode was what I mainly played, but career wasn’t bad.

          • Matt Gallagher

            Do you still have the game?

          • brad

            I think I do, it’s kind of scratched up but I’m pretty sure it still works.

      • Patrick

        WWE 2K15 NXT mode coming in September 2014!

    • A-Dubs

      None of it matters is the series still plays like balls.

  • Tyrant

    Sounds good enough. Look forward to hearing more details going forward.

  • fatneal

    get rid of online passes…add ecw and wcw characters and let us relive the best starcade, great american bash, superbrawl and halloween havoc moments…make the backstage fighting better and improve the reversal system a little…also MORE DIVAS!!!!!….wargames match option?

  • Fazzax

    ” an all new career mode that will be similar to NBA 2K14, where gamers can create a character (or use an existing Superstar/Diva) and rise up the ranks from rookie to legend. ”
    You mean every career mode?

  • PushZigglerDamnit

    This is exactly what I’ve asked for! NXT style career mode, with actual NXT wrestlers! I don’t care what glitches or exploits this years version has, you give me Sami Zayn and Tyler Breeze and all is forgiven 2k.

    • TheRealish

      Yeah same here. I wanted a career mode like that too. I hope it takes some time too I don’t want to make it to the main roster so fast you know. I want the career mode to be long.

  • DoubleAgent74

    As good as this sounds, I have a feeling that Story Designer could be axed to make room for the new modes; if it is, this could be the first WWE game I don’t buy.

    • Matt Gallagher

      Because of story designer? That stuff took so long to make

      • DoubleAgent74

        Career modes in WWE games have never interested me. I’m all about making stuff. Story Designer has pretty much been the main reason why I kept buying the games ever since it was first brought into SVR2010.

        • Matt Gallagher

          Wow I think you’re the only person who likes story designer

          • TheRealish

            I did stories on svr 2011, wwe 12 and wwe 13 but if they have to get rid of it to add more modes I’m ok with that because the story designer did take long azz time lol.

          • Donny Octave

            Well, think about this, Matt. With that pitiful excuse of a mode called ‘WWE Universe’, and the horrible copy/paste campaign modes, story designer, although it was copy/paste since it’s introduction, has been a reprieve from the crap we’re forcefed in these games, and gives us a chance for complete control, making our own rivalries, shows, etc. What would you rather do? Make your wrestler, go in WWE Universe, and have to add yourself by force, with a chance the match getting reset if you exit Universe mode for 5 minutes, or go into story designer, and piece together your rise to the top as you see it happening? Or if you dont make wrestlers, which i do make custom wrestlers, make the big push for a talented wrestler that WWE is too blind to push? While the process is long and gruesome, it makes you appreciate it more when it’s done, because of the amount of effort you put into the story. Just because it’s a long process, and it’s not the best thing, doesn’t mean they need to remove it in order to add a career mode, get rid of 30 Years of Wrestlemania, and make the career mode the campaign!

    • Donny Octave

      Oh god, if Story Designer is cut out, i don’t see myself getting this game, and if i do, im sure i’ll become bored with it fairly quickly if all the hype of this career mode is all fake, and it’s just another copypaste work, which we all know THQ and Yukes arewere very well known and criticized heavily for doing with WWE games. Also, im pretty sure CAW shows would be as good as dead if that happened, so i seriously hope they don’t cut it.


        Never touched Story Designer.

        • Donny Octave

          Well, there’s not a need for explanation, the name explains itself. The only problem with it is that it is heavily copypasted since svr 2010, when they first introduced it. The only recent additions to it were adding cutscenes from WWE Universe, and unfortunately, as of WWE 2k14, camera angle changing in backstage or entrances have been cut out, which i’ll admit, pissed me off pretty badly.

  • CSSA

    but the most important question is…. Can i play as Tyler Breeze?

  • raVen

    sounds great but the gameplay itself needs to pick up. the glitches need to be fixed. and I swear if the story part of the story mode only goes one year…. take the nba2k idea and let me go from day one to HOF but actually have stories for each year. nba2k story was great until year two when it was just the same crap but less often.

  • Steve Williams

    Release it in PC and i’ll pre order it NOW

  • GodsLoyalSon

    This may be the first video game I will buy this year that’s brand new, I’m sorry but I’m not shilling out $60 on a game that doesn’t last me longer then a month of start play.

  • Marko

    Great modes so far, but there is just one more thing I want from the developers and that is PLEASE, put more than six people in the ring when it comes to tag matches and Royal Rumble matches for the first time ever.

    • TheRealish

      It should be possible if it’s gonna be on the Xbox One and Ps4.

  • tnicols

    put some of the NXT talent on the roster, and let us work them from NXT to the WWE.

  • The Man of 1000 Truths

    As long as it is possible to make epic matches flawlessly without the need to sit people on the top turnbuckle to make them jump or have press cancel to get a near fall or standing up immedialty after suffering a devastating move. I want amazing gameplay and graphics and hopefully 2K are the ones to do it. Just keep Bryan Williams, Corey Ladesma, that Mick Foley wannabe and anyone else from THQ away from the game.They went bankrupt for a reason. Focus on the actual gameplay and look, you can have the most amazing career mode ever but it still won’t be fun if it is seen as almost a chore competing in matche. I don’t want to win after a suplex, or a reverse chinlock. Please salvage this popular series by fulfilling the needs of fans everywhere. Please make the perfect Wrestling game ever.

    • Damien J. Dennis

      Curious… who is the Mick Foley wannabe from THQ?

      • Donny Octave

        That guy that appeared with Bryan Williams during the WWE 2k14 reveal videos, talking about the movesets, superstar creators, etc.

        • Damien J. Dennis

          Ah, Aubrey Sitterson. I interviewed him a few months ago about his new comic book. He seems like a cool dude but I don’t know how much involvement he had on the development side of the game. THQ was always an awful company in my opinion.

          • Donny Octave

            Didn’t know his name, i just remembered his face.

  • DoubleD

    No GM mode?.. Ugh.

  • Hershey Maxwell Barber

    Mmmm. Excited for the Wyatt fam.

  • Stephen

    What is the point of another 30 Years of WrestleMania mode? I don’t think anyone has any interest in playing the same matches again.

    • Donny Octave

      30 Years of Wrestlemania was pointless anyway, they just needed something to copy-paste from WWE’13, instead of come up with something original… F*ck you, Yukes.

  • Chris Heatherly

    As long as there is a strong diva roster I’m fine with the game!!

  • copernicus koloff

    i am constantly amazed that anyone over 8 years old plays video games. capital L on your heads, all of you

    • Donny Octave

      Why are you on here, then? Did you come on this article JUST to post that? How sad of you…

  • Buzzard Follower

    Anybody play the in sd vs raw 2007 the storyline where candice michelle turns you into a diva its things like that crazy $#!= that i miss from these games

    • BigRoode

      you like pretending to be a Diva huh? lol jk

      • Buzzard Follower

        actually it was fun because it was just so crazy and fun the storylines in the older games would vary from very realistic to just crazy fun

        • BigRoode

          I agree. the newer games have gotten bland.

  • BigRoode

    as long as CAS is still there and hopefully gets some good updates I’m happy.

  • scott

    That’s good because they needed something to spark an interest in a deteriorating set of games. I still wont buy it but now I might at least gamefly it to see if its worth buying

  • Dixie Carter

    Basically will an agent tell you, you’ll be performing with planted crowds of about 15people comprising of the staff members family…in WWE Nxt until you reach WWE Raw.

    You hear a rumor…WWE won’t bring you up, unless you can keep the ratings up, as they have lost over 300million in stock with poor business decisions.

    You decide to jump to TNA and the game ends.

    • James Woods

      Jump to TNA and your career ends. Horribly. At least the main WWE has near full-to full seats. I lol’d at ur camera trick with TNA. about 100 people piled up in front of the cameras, behind the cameras seats were empty.

      • Dixie Carter

        Stop trying to change the issues at hand that WWE only has a crowd at Raw and sometimes…SmackFlop. Then they tape like 3shows before Raw…with that crowd…because if they was touring aloan. They’d be out of business within a day! Hollerrrr!

  • Elvin Zammit

    I want general manager mode back !

  • Patrick

    2k16 should have a HHH mode with the main goal being, bury as much talent as possible while still being in the main event scene.

  • WAW® Shop

    Sounds too good to be true IMO, I mean 2k still has that lazy-ass douche Cory Ledesma from Thq working on these games.

  • Brandon King

    I still want universe.

  • Bad News Barrage

    Can they add the match screens where the wrestlers move around before flashing to a pose? Also, the Universe mode should be styled like now, but with SvR 2011’s screen at the bottom that said what matches were happening. I loved that. Also, can we fix the AI’s going for a pin every two seconds? Save it for big moves! Same for kicking out of pins or finishers! If I hit a Tombstone, and they kick out, how can they just stand right back up? Oh, and Created Finishers should do more damage! They better have Dolph Ziggler’s championship entrance in there.

  • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

    Is Sting in the legend roster? if he is a DLC is he free to download?
