Stone Cold Steve Austin takes WWE 2K16 cover

Gimmie a HELL YEAH! It’s time to break out the beers because WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin has been announced as WWE 2K16 cover Superstar, a fitting choice given the game’s focus this year on Austin’s career.

“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,” said Stone Cold Steve Austin. “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.”

2K’s Chris Snyder added: “Stone Cold Steve Austin’s iconic style, unmistakable personality and worldwide reverence from the WWE Universe make him the ideal fit for WWE 2K16. 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.”

WWE 2K16 is slated for release on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, and PS3 on October 27th, 2015 in North America, and October 30th internationally.
