Sting’s recent cryptic tweets seemed to suggest that the wrestler would finally make his debut on last night’s episode of Raw, but alas it was not to be. His tweets were actually pointing to the announcement of his inclusion in WWE 2K15 as a pre-order bonus character.
“Two generations of Sting” will be available to pre-order customers on all platforms. His early look, complete with bright colors and blonde, flattop hairstyle, and his more recognizable black trench coat wearing, black and white face painted, baseball bat-wielding look.
“The only thing for sure about Sting is nothing’s for sure, except my debut in ‘WWE 2K15,'” Sting said. “I’m honored to have my legacy immortalized in a video game. It’s showtime!”
“We’re eager to introduce fans to Sting in a compelling new way, while debuting the next generation of gaming in the ‘WWE 2K’ franchise,” Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K, added. “Pre-ordering ‘WWE 2K15’ is the ultimate way to embrace the history and individuality of Sting’s impressive career.”
WWE 2K15 is set to launch October 28 in North America and October 31 in Europe for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
