Visual Concepts CEO on WWE 2K20
Back in November, Take-Two President Karl Slattery addressed the #FixWWE2K20 movement on social media, as well as consumer backlash regarding the WWE 2K20 game. Slattery said during a conference call last year that he was “disappointed” with the reviews and consumer feedback they received regarding the game.
This past week, Visual Concepts CEO Strauss Zelnick joined Slattery in voicing his displeasure over WWE 2K20. During Take-Two’s latest earnings call, Zelnick said he was disappointed that the game did not meet its sales and quality expectations. Zelnick added, “2K is actively working with Visual Concepts to ensure that these issues are addressed in the future” (h/t TrueAchievements)
This was the first game of the WWE 2K franchise that was developed by Visual Concepts. The WWE 2K games were previously co-developed by Visual Concepts and Yukes! until this past August, when 2K decided to have Visual Concepts become the sole developer of the game.
