is a professional wrestling video game in development by Yuke's and Visual Concepts and will be published by 2K Sports for the PS 3, PS 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Coming off the heels of WWE 2K16, which earned critical press and fan acclaim – including an 8.8 out of 10 from IGN.com – WWE 2K17 arrives as the reigning and defending flagship WWE video game franchise champion with stunning graphics, ultra-authentic gameplay and a massive roster of WWE and NXT’s popular Superstars and Legends.
WWE 2K17 sees the return of fighting in the crowd, making it the first time since 2008's SmackDown vs. Raw, where it involves wrestlers fighting through the crowd and into backstage areas. It also sees the return of backstage brawls, which transcends from the ringside during Falls Count Anywhere or No Disqualification matches, and a feature that was last seen since SmackDown! Here Comes the Pain. The responsiveness of the gameplay greatly been improved for each game systems that were updated such as ladders and taunts. The game also introduces a new secondary submission system, similar to the Breaking Point submission system that was currently seen in the last-generation versions of the WWE 2K Series.
WWE 2K17's MyCareer mode introduces a promo engine, where Superstars can express themselves to the WWE Universe and also call out or respond to other WWE Superstars. Backstage interviews with Renee Young can now lead to a backstage brawl. How a player competes, reacts, what is said and even what attire is worn can make a difference in a Superstar’s journey through the WWE. At some point, players are also likely to come face to face with Brock Lesnar and his advocate, Paul Heyman. This mode is exclusive to the PS4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.
