The PS3 and Xbox 360 WWE 2K15 release arrives on October 28th in the U.S. and on October 31st internationally. IN September 2K Sports announced a delayed release for the newest consoles. At this point the Xbox One and PS4 WWE 2K15 release date remains on track for November 18th.
“Visual Concepts and Yuke’s are committed to delivering the most authentic and action-packed WWE experience to date, including release for the very first time on next-generation consoles,” said Greg Thomas, President, Visual Concepts in the announcement on 2K explaining the reason for a delay, “The additional development time enables our talented teams to ensure the WWE 2K15 next-gen experience fully meets our expectations.”
WWE 2K15 Deals

Normally Gamer’s Club Unlocked is $120 for a two-year subscription, but when you purchase a game $39.99 or higher at Best Buy this week you get the subscription for just $30.

WWE 2K15 MyCarrer or Who Got NXT
The WWE 2K15 release for Xbox 360 and PS3 does not include the new MyCareer mode. Instead gamers can play Who Got NXT, which is a superstar mode that unlocks characters, moves and more inside WWE 2K15.
This is not the same as the MyCareer mode for Xbox 360 or PS3, but with the opportunity to take five superstars up against other top wrestlers including John Cena, it looks like a fun option for gamers who are not on one of the newest consoles.
The WWE 2K15 MyCareer mode lets gamers create a superstar and then start from the bottom to work their way up to the top of WWE to win a championship.
When 2K came to the WWE Performance Center and I got to see the graphics and the gameplay, seeing the WWE Performance Center on-screen in a video game world blew my mind,” Sami Zayn said to WWE.com. “Right down to Bill DeMott at ringside, coaching you, getting in your head. I mean, I couldn’t believe it.”
We’ll see more about the WWE 2K15 MyCareer in the coming weeks.

The WWE 2K15 release dates don’t arrive at the same time, but you can still play as the same wrestlers on all platforms. Aside from the MyCareer GMs in the Xbox One and PS4 WWE 2K15 release, the rosters are the same.
#WWE2K15 FACT: Rosters are identical on all platforms EXCEPT FOR “MyCareer” GMs. They are excluded from PS3 and Xbox 360.
