Following the fallout from THQ's bankruptcy, it almost seemed like several of its franchises wouldn't find a home.  However, wrestling fans everywhere will be pleased to know that World Wrestling Entertainment games will continue to live on.

2K has officially signed a deal with both the WWE and its long-time developer Yukes Entertainment to continue the franchise, starting with the release of the new WWE 2K14 game, which is coming later this year.  Yukes will work with the pros at Visual Concepts to make a stellar sports product, one that should feature some great new additions that wrestling fans will love…though they haven't been announced just yet.

Along with Yukes, 2K has also signed on the THQ Fight Team, who will help with marketing, franchise development and more.  So it looks like it'll be business as usual for these guys.

You can read more about the official signing, which covers the next five years, over at the official ESPN sports blog.  We'll provide more details on WWE 2K14 as we get them.
