John Cena and Puff Daddy had their hands in curating the in-game soundtrack for WWE 2K15 and WWE 2K17 video games.
This year, 2K worked with legendary WWE Superstar and global icon Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as he was the executive producer of WWE 2K18’s in-game soundtrack. Johnson selected 11 music tracks that reflects his personal taste in music which includes tracks from different genres including hip-hop, hard rock and R&B.
“Music is one of my soul’s anchors. All genres,” Johnson said in a release. “I’m excited to celebrate my WWE roots by partnering with the 2K and Apple Music teams and share some of my favorite hardcore training songs with fans all over the world.”
The WWE 2K18 in-game soundtrack will include the following artists and songs:
Blues Brothers – “Soul Man”
Boston – “Smokin’”
Bruno Mars – “Runaway Baby”
Disturbed – “Down With The Sickness”
Eazy-E – “Boyz-N- The-Hood”
George Thorogood & The Destroyers – “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”
Joe Walsh – “Rocky Mountain Way”
Kanye West – “Black Skinhead”
Kid Rock – “You Never Met a White Boy Quite Like Me”
¡MAYDAY! (feat. Tech N9ne) – “Last One Standing”
Tech N9ne (feat. Krizz Kaliko, Serj Tankian) – “Straight Out The Gate”
“Over the years we have collaborated with some of the world’s most popular artists, including Florida Georgia Line, Metallica, The Weeknd and Diddy to name a few, but partnering with one of our own is always special,” said Neil Lawi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, WWE Music Group. “Working with Dwayne is always a creative and inspirational experience, and we are thrilled to partner with him on this year’s WWE 2K18 soundtrack, and bring his diverse selection to our fans around the world.”
Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K, added: “For the past few years, we have presented music as an integral part of both WWE and WWE 2K culture by aligning with several big names in music and entertainment, from Sean Combs a.k.a. Puff Daddy for WWE 2K17 to our WWE Superstar John Cena and Wiz Khalifa collaboration for WWE 2K15. The opportunity to work with an individual as accomplished, down-to- earth and respected as Dwayne – our inaugural WWE 2K cover Superstar for WWE 2K14 – significantly complements the gameplay content and overall experience we look to deliver every year.”
WWE 2K18 will be released for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One on Oct. 17. The game will also be available on Oct. 13 for those who purchase the WWE 2K18 Deluxe Edition and WWE 2K18 Collector’s Edition for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One.
