[Update] A source with knowledge of the situation tells Kotaku that Take-Two will acquire the WWE license.
Earlier rumors had said EA Sports acquired the license directly from WWE before the auction of THQ's assets. EA Sports denies this. An EA Sports spokesman told Kotaku the label has no plans to get into WWE-licensed games.
The Twitter feed for the WWE series also just published this tweet:
