While on hand for another UFC press conference in So-Cal, the game which is slated to be released a month from tomorrow, Cory Ledesma(who is not a part of the production team resposible for the new UFC title, but is apart of THQ) was asked about the up coming WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2010 game by interviewer Jason Powell. Ledesma had the following to say:

“Well, Im on hand as a guest. I knew I’d have to address this question sooner or later. Me and the team have been trying to lurk in the dark, trying to avoid it. But I’ll let you guys in. Before though, be sure to download the new update roster pack for WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2009 from the Live Market and PSN. You are now able to compete as legendary superstars and tag team: Doink The Clown, The Bushwackers, Earthquake, and none other than Vader! And for you Legend hungry fans out there, you are now able to Relive, Rewrite and Redefine the greatest Wrestlemania moments in history with the new WWE Legends Of Wrestlemania game, out now for the PS3 and Xbox360. When it boils down to the up coming WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2010 game not much can be obviously said at the moment. Our last game, 2009, is still hot right now. We’ve just released new content for it and we also have the Legends game which is selling great and is receiving rave reviews. We understand that our fans are hungry, but we must be patient. The up coming game has been in development for quite some time, though. We actually started it while we were in the middle of developing 2009! We’ve yet to do that with ANY Smackdown Vs Raw franchise. All I can say is that when it comes to comparison, Grand Theft Auto 4, which we have no relation too ofcourse, was a great game, and it redefined gaming in that genre and also set a new sub par for the franchise! But with Smackdown vs Raw 2009 being the blow off to an incredible journey we’ve had since 2006, we will now soon enter a new era.
