THQ Sell off: WWE licence could be heading to Take Two

Momentum is building around the rumour suggesting that THQ’s cherished WWE licence is about to be acquired by Take Two Interactive.

IGN first suggested that Take-Two is in line to swoop for the WWE licence last night, but since then Kotaku has added fuel to the talk, reporting that its own sources have confirmed the rumour.

The only semi-official word on the situation has come via a tweet from the @WWEGames Twitter feed. Last night it tweeted: “We don’t have any details to share yet, but there WILL continue to be WWE Games. Stay tuned for more information and some exciting news!”

The WWE licence, alongside Darksiders developer Vigil Games, are the two remaining parts of THQ yet to find a buyer. You can find out what happened to the rest of THQ here.
