In an interview published this morning by ESPN, 2K Sports and World Wrestling Entertainment discussed their exclusive, five-year contract arising from THQ's bankruptcy and dissolution, and said the next WWE professional wrestling simulation should launch during its traditional fall release window this year.
2K Sports started an arms race with itself three years ago when it landed Kobe Bryant, the greatest player of his era, for the cover of NBA 2K10.

Visual Concepts, the 2K Sports in-house studio handling NBA 2K, NHL 2K and MLB 2K, cut roughly 30 positions, Take-Two Interactive confirmed today. Very few jobs, if any, came from the studio's upcoming NBA 2K11, its biggest moneymaker.
