WWE 2K22 launches in March
New details about the return of the wrestling game franchise
Following an extended break, the WWE franchise from 2K is set to return, as the publisher has announced that WWE 2K22, will be released on March 11, 2022.
From the redesigned gameplay engine to new controls and upgraded visuals, WWE 2K22 promises to look, feel, play, and “Hit Different.” Alongside an updated and intuitive control scheme, as well as an immersive presentation and varied camera angles, players will feel the pressure and reward of every punch, kick, and slam.
Popular game modes including the returning 2K Showcase - starring Rey Mysterio - incorporate new features and updates, allowing players to relive the moments behind Mysterio’s most famous matches. In MyRISE, players chart their own paths to superstardom. With Universe Mode and the upgraded Creation Suite, WWE 2K22 offers players the ability to customize their WWE experience. From taking control over brands, premium live events, match results, rivalries, and more – or creating the ultimate custom Superstar personas, arenas, and championships – players can share their work with first-time-ever, cross-platform sharing.
In addition, WWE 2K22 will introduce new modes to the WWE 2K experience: MyGM and MyFACTION. In MyGM, players step into the role of a WWE General Manager, from drafting the ultimate roster of WWE Superstars and Legends to developing rivalries and championship showdowns. With the franchise-first MyFACTION mode, players can collect and manage their dream faction with weekly events and regular updates.
