WWE 2K22 Announced During Wrestlemania 37 with Gameplay Teaser
During Wrestlemania 37, WWE 2K22 was revealed alongside a first look at gameplay featuring Rey Mysterio and Cesaro.
The short clip, which you can see below, features gameplay captured from a work-in-progress build but showcases the new character models and action fans can expect when the game arrives later this year.
WWE 2K22 will be 2K’s first WWE simulation wrestling game since the poorly-received WWE 2K20.
In our review of WWE 2K20, we said, “WWE 2K19 looked like it stopped the downward trend for the series, but WWE 2K20 doubles back, breaks its ankle, and tumbles down the slope.”
Following the game being criticized by us and others for its poor performance, numerous glitches and bugs, and more, 2K announced that WWE 2K21 would be cancelled and that, in order to deliver the experience fans want from a WWE game, it would be extending the production timeline for what is now known as WWE 2K22.
To make up for the lack of a true WWE 2K game, 2K did reveal and release WWE 2K Battlegrounds that, unfortunately, also didn’t receive great reviews.
In our WWE 2K Battlegrounds review, we said that it “works as a shallow party game you play for an hour, then move on to something else, and that’s it.”
