WWE 2K22 Pushed Back to March 2022 Release Date

It Hits Different…?

Wrestling fans will not see a WWE game released this year, the first time since 2000 that we have not had a release.

The next title, WWE 2K22, will now be released March 2022.

2K announced 2K22 at WWE Summerslam over the weekend that the upcoming game will be, “redefined from the ground up”.

Hopefully, this means 2K and Visual Concepts will produce a game that isn’t a buggy, broken mess.

Currently, we do not know much else beyond the aforementioned in regards to 2K22‘s release.

Some confirmed wrestlers, however, include

  • Drew McIntyre,
  • Rey Mysterio,
  • Ricochet,
  • Bayley,
  • Sheamus,
  • Finn Balor,
  • Roman Reigns,
  • Rhea Ripley,
  • The Miz,
  • Shinsuke Nakamura,
  • Kane,
  • Shelton Benjamin,
  • Dolph Ziggler,
  • Goldberg,
  • Bobby Lashley, and
  • Kofi Kingston.

Undoubtedly, there will be many more revealed between now and March.

There are a number of worries already among the WWE gaming community; chief among these is that, by the time the game is released, most of (if not, all of) the game’s wrestlers will be horribly outdated.

This is, of course, something that occurs a lot with the WWE 2K series.

Due to the nature of the sport, including wrestler’s forming new alliances, adopting new moves or attires, or leaving the company altogether, it is incredibly limiting to release a game in the way 2K has done.

However, with 2K promising that the game has been “redefined”, maybe there is a way around that.

Whatever the result, we will have to wait a further five months for the next title.
