WWE 13

WWE '13 is an upcoming professional wrestling video game being developed by Yuke's and published by THQ for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Wii. It will be the second game in the WWE series and the fifteenth overall in the combined series. It is the sequel to WWE '12 and will be released on October 30, 2012.

In February 2012, WWE road agent Road Dogg confirmed that he will be featured in the game with former tag partner, Billy Gunn. Former WWE superstar X-Pac announced on his Twitter account that he wanted to be in the game, where he later confirmed he had been approached by THQ themselves.

In March, WWE '13 was officially confirmed to be in development. That same month, it was also confirmed that Jim Ross would be on commentary for the game alongside Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole.

At the 2012 Superstar WrestleMania Challenge, Cory Ledesma, the Creative Director for WWE Games at THQ, confirmed that Road To WrestleMania mode would be replaced for Story Mode, that 10 Divas will be able to compete in the ring at a time and that backstage brawls will be less prevalent in Story Mode than the previous year's release.

In April, Ledesma reconfirmed the previous announcement, as well as confirming that the PS3 version of the game will feature 64 layers in Create-A-Superstar mode after holding a contest to fans.

On May 29th 2012 a trailer for the game was released featuring CM Punk and small segments of footage from the game including the ability for players to replicate the infamous moment on SmackDown! when Mark Henry superplexed the Big Show off the turnbuckle and causing the ring to collapse.

On the May 28 edition of WWE Raw, during a segment featuring General Manager John Laurinaitis and CM Punk, Laurinaitis revealed the release date of the game would be October 30, 2012, while Punk revealed the official cover art for WWE '13.
