Update
Well Andre is 99.9% confirmed now. The official WWEGames Twitter just posted the photo at the bottom of this story with the following caption "#BecomeImmortal tomorrow. Are you ready?" The picture is indeed of Andre The Giant's shoulder so it appears that the official reveal may come tomorrow, perhaps during Monday Night Raw. 

Original Story
While there is no official announcement yet, 2KGames may have overlooked something when posting copyright information on their website. If you went to the WWE2K14 official roster page you would not have seen Andre The Giant listed as an official member of the roster. If you did scroll down all the way to bottom to the copyright information, you would have seen the following information.

Now this could have simply been a mistake. The information keeps mentioning THQ and the year 2011 pops up so this could just have been them copying and pasting the info from previous years thinking no one would notice. 

The information has since been changed to the following.

So is Andre confirmed? We don't know just yet but if I were a betting man, I would put money on him being in the game. With Macho Man Randy Savage, Ultimate Warrior along with Hulk Hogan and Roddy Piper shirts being seen in the crowd from screen shots and trailers, I would say there is a good chance of his inclusion. The legends in this years game seems to be a collection from the many era's of the WWE and I'm thinking the story mode may involve us re-creating classic matches from years past like the game Legends Of WrestleMania. 

In any case, we should know soon as JR tweeted that the annual roster reveal is scheduled for this Saturday for Summer Slam Axxess. It will most likely be streamed online as it has in previous years.
