2K Games has signed a multi-year agreement that will see it continue to develop and publish games in the WWE videogame series.

2K today announced a new exclusive agreement with WWE that will see it continue to develop and publish the WWE videogames franchise.

The WWE videogame franchise has been running for 18 years now. It was first developed by THQ, but following its closure, 2K's parent company Take-Two snapped up the rights to the series in 2013.

Not only will 2K continue to develop the console-based WWE videogames, but it will also be able to continue to work on WWE SuperCard, its mobile tie-in title. WWE SuperCard has been downloaded more than 9 million times since August 2014.

"We are thrilled with the positive momentum of the WWE 2K series, including generating year-over-year growth, as well as the success of WWE SuperCard. We are very pleased to extend our partnership with WWE and look forward to many more years of collaboration," said 2K COO, David Ismailer.
