As we noted on Saturday, there is an announcement coming regarding the WWE 2K18 video game cover. WWE has been posting teasers on social media leading up to the announcement on who will be on this year’s cover. This is likely related to Seth Rollins’ announcement on Monday on SportsCenter and probably means that he will be the person on the cover. There was some concern from fans when there was no announcement about the game at the Sony E3 Expo this past week but that is probably because WWE and 2K wanted to hold off on announcing details until Monday.
As first reported by Wrestling Observer Radio, Kurt Angle is going to be the featured Legend in the game this year and that has been known for a while. It is a little odd to go with Seth Rollins as the cover Superstar (if that is what they are doing this year) because 2K Sports usually goes with names that are considered crossover mainstream stars such as Brock Lesnar, Stone Cold Steve Austin, CM Punk, etc.
Also, we have not confirmed this but there have been rumors that, in addition to Playstation 4 and XBox One, that the game could be released on Nintendo Switch, according to a leak from Austrian retail chain Libro. The chain has the game listed as an upcoming release for that platform and they have a good track record with listings on other games.
