Who better than Austin 3:16 himself to grace the cover of WWE 2K16? The Texas Rattlesnake himself, Stone Cold Steve Austin, was announced today as the annual squared-circle brawler’s 2016 edition cover athlete.
Austin was interviewed regarding his upcoming WWE 2K16 cover by WWE.com:
“It caught me completely off guard. I figured I’d been gone for such a long time; it’s been a while. To get that phone call and be on the cover of what is going to be the biggest, baddest video game that there’s ever been, with the roster and all the technology, and to be out of the ring for so many years meant a whole lot to me.”
WWE 2K16 sees the title’s roster bolster to 120 playable wrestlers from WWE past and present. You can checkout the athlete reveal trailer just below. WWE 2K16, developed by Yuke’s and Visual Concepts, is set for release on October 27th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
