It looks like there won’t be any Smackdown Vs Raw title gracing the shelves of gaming retailers this year, because the next game from WWE will be called WWE ’12. In a teaser released today by THQ we see heavy focus on current superstar Randy Orton and his rise from a rookie fighter in Evolution to where he is today, winning the World Heavyweight Champion from Christian.
IGN was given a first hands on with the title and has placed a preview for the game on their website. Some highlights include Predator Technology, allowing fluid movements in the game, Dynamic Comebacks like we see John Cena and Randy Orton do all the time, and AI memory, meaning that you can’t perform the same move all the time or else you will be countered. This is an interesting and hopefully refreshing turn of events for THQ’s wrestling game division. We’ll see more in the coming weeks, but know now that WWE ’12 will be released in North America on November 22nd and everywhere else November 25th.
