WWE '12 Online Functionality Going Down

By litepink, 3 years ago
With WWE 2K14 right around the corner, it appears the inevitable is upon us with the online support for WWE '12 ceasing on October 29th of this year. There are achievements tied to content creation and online multiplayer that are affected.

Then to really pour salt into the wound here, the online features are only available with the Online Axxess pass, which is free in all new copies of the game, or $9.99/£6.99 for those buying the game pre-owned. Please, don't DDT the messenger over this.

Coincidentally (or not), the online shutdown for WWE '12 occurs the same day WWE 2K14 is released in North America on October 29th. The game flies from the top rope November 1st in Europe.
