Wrestling game series WWE SmackDown vs. Raw will make its PC debut with an online-focused title, publisher THQ and Jakks Pacific announced today. Though the companies declined to provide any concrete details on the PC game, Jakks Pacific's Interactive SVP Nelo Lucich hinted that users will be able to "become their favorite superstar in a WWE virtual world of their own creation." Currently with the working title of WWE SmackDown vs. Raw Online, the game will release in Asia in late 2010 and is being developed by Korean studio Vertigo Games (Black Shot). WWE SmackDown vs. Raw Online marks THQ’s fourth game in development exclusively for the PC online market, following MMO titles Warhammer 40,000 Online (working title), Company of Heroes Online, and Dragonica. "We are pleased to bring the #1 fighting franchise, WWE SmackDown vs. Raw, to an online format, offering gamers an immersive online experience based on the world of the WWE," says THQ president and CEO Brian Farrell. "We view the online game market as an important driver of future growth and this new title further expands our portfolio of great games for this exciting market."
