The universal disgust that the wrestling game community has had towards WWE 2K20 is palpable. Many have stated how the latest entry is the worst wrestling game ever. And it’s hard to argue otherwise.
The buggy mess that has been shipped out was dubbed a “work-in-progress demo that’s yet to be stress-tested” by one reviewer. The numerous videos and Tweets detailing the game’s issues brought many a smile to those online. But it also marked the biggest issue.
2K, one of the biggest publishers in the industry, released the game in this state.
Thankfully, however, for some players on PlayStation, Sony has stepped in to help, as reported by WrestlingInc.com. Apparently, Sony isn’t commissioning all refunds, but they are looking to rectify the majority of claims.
Some online have claimed that due to them purchasing digital copies, Sony would not refund them. However, this isn’t necessarily the case. Sony offers Support and Chat services to help process these claims. To proceed with a refund, head to Sony’s support page.
Below are a few examples of the refund process and how it was successful for those players. There’s no news yet on whether Microsoft will step up and offer refunds as well, but I can’t see it being too long before they do if they are going to.
If you do intend to make a refund claim, you’re best going in with some sort of gameplan. Issues such as loading screen freezes, bugs, crashes, various game modes not working properly are all applicable and valid. You need a gameplan going into this.

Some people are also claiming that the fact that the Fiend Bray Wyatt would not be available until 28th October (as opposed to day one) is valid. They have cited this as an example of false advertising.
Be cautious though, don’t just say you don’t like the game. Be specific and discuss what is wrong with the game to avoid any potential for miscommunication. Another issue to avoid is leaving it too long after you purchased the game. If you act within the first 14 days, you should be safe. But after the 14th day, you probably won’t be able to claim a refund.
And, of course, if you do opt to go for a refund and it’s successful, you’ll not be able to play the game afterwards. WWE 2K20 will be permanently deleted from your library. That is until you decide to purchase the game again. Until the game is heavily discounted and/or patched, you’d be best off waiting. With any luck, it won’t be long until something is rectified. Hopefully, this will mark the last instance of such a buggy release in the franchise. Though, I’m not holding my breath.
