Now that 2K Games have announced the entire 120 character roster for their upcoming wrestling game WWE 2K16, they have received criticism from fans because of a lack of new Divas in the game. The backlash was added to because of how many of the newer Divas have not been added to the game, and won’t be even in DLC, especially given the fact that some newer male wrestlers have been added to WWE 2K16‘s roster.
Now however, 2K Games have issued a statement on the matter. 2K Games have said that they tried to include some newer Divas, but they weren’t able to, writing on their website that:
“With our final roster reveal this past Monday, it was awesome seeing the excitement for The New Day, Enzo and Cass, Mikey Whipwreck, and more. But it was clear that some in the community are frustrated by the lack of the newer Divas added to the main WWE roster recently.
“We pushed as hard as we could to include Sasha Banks, Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Bayley in WWE 2k16, but it simply did not work out for various reasons. While we are not divulging full details on WWE 2K16’s post-launch plans just yet, we can confirm that the Four Horsewomen will not be available as DLC.
“We are proud to have and built the largest WWE roster to date featuring the most Divas ever. The WWE 2K16 disc includes all of the Divas on the main roster at the time we locked it in (13 playable in total).
We all agree the Divas Revolution is great for business and look forward to celebrating the Divas even more in future WWE 2K titles.”
The WWE 2K16 release date is set for October 27 on Xbox One,Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. Those who preorder WWE 2K16 will receive two playable versions of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator from the popular action movies.
