WWE '13 is a game developed by Yuke's Co. Ltd. and published by THQ. It was the game used by Bazza to create VGCW's "simulated" matchups, until he made the switch to WWE 2K14.


WWE '13 was released in October/November 2012 on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Nintendo Wii. The game focuses on the Attitude Era of WWE, replacing its Road to WrestleMania Mode with an Attitude Era Mode where the player plays through the Attitude Era in 6 different storylines. The game also brings back its Predator Technology engine, adding in a new audio system called WWE Live. The game was said to be the second phase of a 'Revolution in WWE video games, with cover athlete CM Punk taking charge. Following release and positive reception, the game would be nominated for the Spike VGA for Best Individual Sports Game. However, as with previous titles in the series, the game was slow and glitch filled, with only one patch being released in November 2012, and a second promised patch never making it to the game.

After thirteen years, WWE '13 is the last WWE game to be developed under THQ, as THQ went bankrupt and shut down not long after the game's release. The rights to WWE have since been sold to Take-Two. Take-Two plans to release a new WWE game under the 2K Sports label in October/November 2013, titled WWE 2K14. It is being developed by longtime WWE game developer Yuke's Co. Ltd. with the help of the Visual Concepts team, who are known for their 2K Sports titles. Despite the change in publisher, with Yuke's remaining as developer, THQuality may still go on in one form or another.
