Back in February Take-Two snapped up the WWE license after the demise of THQ and duly filed it under its 2K brand of sports titles.

During its financial briefing, 2K Sports announced a 29th October release date for WWE 2K14 in North America, though unfortunately it won't be showing up on Wii U as Eurogamer has been informed it's only down for a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release.

The last WWE title to be made available on a Nintendo console was WWE '13 for Wii - it seems Nintendo is having a tough time pinning it down.

As we already know, Japanese studio Yuke's, which has worked on the series for some time now, is grappling with the development of the upcoming release.

The UK version of the game will be available on 1st November. There's no news yet on a version for the next Xbox console or the PlayStation 4.
