WWE News: 2K to reveal first WWE 2K17 roster members
2k hopes to put an artistic spin on plans to reveal the first members of the WWE 2K17 roster. To achieve this feat, 2K invited WWE portrait artist Rob Schamberger to paint a picture of the latest additions to the upcoming WWE video game at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.
He will create an original composition at 2K’s booth at E3 2016, which will feature the new roster members on a Superstar-sized canvas. This E3 2016 artist-in-residence is no stranger to stylistically capturing the essence of the WWE Universe.
When he isn’t showing the tricks of his trade in his YouTube series “WWE Canvas 2 Canvas,” Schamberger paints original portraits live in WWE settings, including WrestleMania Axxess and Raw. His past WWE-inspired works have also raised significant donations for several charities, including Make-a-Wish.
WWE fans curious to see whom Schamberger unveils as part of the WWE 2K17 roster can visit the 2K booth at E3 2016, which will be located in Booth #1601 in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center. The WWE 2K17 playable characters announced at E3 2016 will join Goldberg, whose availability as a pre-order exclusive in the WWE video game was recently confirmed by 2K.
WWE 2K17 is not yet rated by the ESRB, and is currently scheduled for worldwide release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, in October 2016.
