WWE '13 is a professional wrestling video game developed by Yuke's and published by THQ
for PlayStation 3
, XBOX 360
and Wii. It is the second and last game in the WWE series and the 14th overall in the combined series. It is the sequel to WWE '12 and is succeeded by WWE 2K14. It was released on October 30, 2012, in North America and November 2, 2012, in United Kingdom. It was the last WWE game to be published by THQ
before the company's demise in January 2013, thus ending the WWE/THQ
relationship after 14 years. After THQs liquidation, 2K Sports purchase the rights to the franchise.
The game focuses on the Attitude Era of WWE, replacing its Road to Wrestle Mania Mode with an Attitude Era Mode where the player plays through the Attitude Era in six different story lines. The game also brings back its modified "Predator Technology engine", adding in a new audio system called WWE Live. The game is said to be the second phase of a "Revolution" in WWE video games, with cover athlete CM Punk taking charge. Following its release, the game received positive reviews from the critics and was nominated for the Spike Video Game Award for Best Individual Sports Game.
