CM Punk WILL be in WWE 2K15, new details on 2K Showcase

Last week on Grizzly Gaming, I detailed a lot of the new features of the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and today there is some exciting new information about the 2K Showcase, one of the single player modes in the game which will detail some of the most prominent feuds in the history of WWE.

Perhaps the biggest and most surprising news is that former WWE Superstar CM Punk WILL be featured in WWE 2K15 as part of the 2K Showcase for his 2011-2013 feud with John Cena. The 2002-2004 feud between Triple H and Shawn Michaels was also unveiled recently. In all there will be 33 matches featured in the 2K Showcase but additional feuds will be added as DLC after the game hits shelves on October 28.

It should also be noted that the CM Punk vs John Cena feud will be playable at Gamescom in Germany and at the SummerSlam event this weekend in Los Angeles. Much like the “Attitude Era” mode and “30 Years of Wrestlemania” in the past two WWE games, completing the 2K Showcase will unlock new wrestlers, attires, arenas and more.

Regardless of how you feel about CM Punk’s sudden departure from the company, it’s pretty cool we’ll get at least one next-generation wrestling game with CM Punk in it. I also suppose that this means that CM Punk will be a playable character outside of the 2K Showcase, though none of the articles I’ve read make specific reference to that. It would be odd to include Punk and not allow him to be used outside of the 2K Showcase but considering the way he left WWE, I was a little surprised to see him included at all.
