WWE 2K15 Release Pushed Back; Possible Link to Goldberg & WrestleMania?

WWE 2K14​WWE 2K15 may just miss its usual window for release this year. According to Game Informer, the company has the next generation game scheduled for "Fiscal 2015", a period which ends on March 31. 

Take-Two shared in a recent year-end earnings conference that developer Visual Concepts – the team behind the NBA 2K series – is assisting with WWE 2K15, which will be the studio's first full-fledged attempt at the wrestling franchise; last year's game had already been in production by THQ when they were bought out. It will also be the first wrestling game to arrive on XBox One and PS4, although not exclusively, and an early 2015 release gives them more time to work on the project. 

The delay would also coincide nicely with WrestleMania 31, which would seem to match up with rumors that WWE and Take-Two would like to bring in Goldberg as this year's featured Superstar, and potentially as the headlining act for the 2015 Hall of Fame ceremony. There have also been rumors that WWE 2K15 may feature some sort of "WCW Mode" similar to "30 Years of WrestleMania" in last year's game.
