    Is WWE 2K16 Dead?

    I just got this a few days ago, and noticed a few things. One the Online section isn't clickable and says there is an error with the server.

    Then playing through certain points in WWE Universe the game would crash.

    Then worse in order to unlock things and characters have to go through 2K Showcase, but after the preliminary intro with Steve Austin, when you click to start it, the game seems to load, then stops loading freezes with the PS3 going Please Wait... but it doesn't kick over.

    So is it too late? Is the game just dead?

    Does that effect the 2k Showcase?

    It shouldn't, but it could explain the server query you had.

    I've moved the thread to the correct forum, please have a search to see if someone else had the same issue. You could try reinstalling the game, and/or send in a ticket to support.2k.com.

    by all approximations, yes. WWE 2K16 is well and truly dead. all online servers are no longer active. offline functions, such as showcase and universe should still be active though.
    you talk about John 3:16 - AUSTIN 3:16 SAYS I JUST WHIPPED YOUR ASS!

    Ok because I've been running into alot of game crashes. I want to aleast do the 2k Showcase to do the unlocks, but it doesn't kick over when you get to the point where you are suppose to load. like after that video package for Austin. If you hit the enter key to bypass it, you go to the black screen the 2kshowcase icon, you see the loading....then it stalls. the ps3 says please wait but nothing comes after it.

    That would seem to be issues with the game itself, rather than anything caused by the servers or age of the game. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game?

    I can try, just delete the info off the ps3 and redo?
    also I notice that after I bought the season pass stuff for 2k17 that the game just let me unlock everything after a while, is that the case for 2k16?

    That would be because of the Accelerator that comes with the Season Pass. You are able to unlock everything and adjust attributes from the moment you install it. Sounds like you might not have noticed until later.
