2K Games announced Wednesday (February 20) that they've entered into a multi-year partnership with the WWE for the release of its video game franchise.

The series, which will continue to be developed by Yukes in Japan, will combine the studio's signature gameplay with 2K's commitment to authenticity in WWE '14, the latest iteration of the popular, long running series.

With the addition of the WWE franchise, 2K will continue a highly-successful, 15-year tradition established by past WWE titles.

Financial terms were not disclosed at press time.

"The WWE series is a great addition to our stable of triple-A titles, and we're very happy with this exclusive agreement with our new partners," said David Ismailer, COO for 2K. "We look forward to capturing the excitement of WWE and marrying it with the same commitment to authenticity and entertainment that we give to our NBA 2K and MLB 2K franchises."

"2K's reputation for outstanding quality and dedication to authenticity are a perfect fit for WWE," added Casey Collins, Executive Vice President, Consumer Products for WWE. "This new partnership will ensure that WWE continues to be one of the leading video game brands in the world and we look forward to continuing the franchise with the benefit of their expertise across a variety of platforms."

WWE '14 isn't due out until fall 2013.
