2K’s upcoming WWE title is able to make the wrestler look very real because of the new face scanning system. 

In a behind the scenes video, the 2K developers talked about how they went about upping their game in terms of authenticity. 

Art director Lynell Jinks noted that 2K Games “pretty much had to re-write all our tech from scratch.” 

Thus, 2K Games tracked down the different WWE Superstars who were on the road for different wrestling events, snuck them back stage, and proceeded to use their latest face scanning tech to capture their expressions and likeness, which was then reproduced in the game. 

Towards the end, they scanned “almost everyone” on the games roster.

WWE legend Hulk Hogan was really impressed with the new tech.

“The new face scanning system is off the chain brother,” he enthused.

“Everything looks like its really breathing, and it looks like its the real deal.

“Its unbelievable,” Hogan finished.
