It’s been a short time since we last heard from the WWE 2K series, and it seems it’ll still be a short time yet. 2K Games has finally announced the discharge date for WWE 2K22, but unfortunately, it’s not getting to be the discharge date most fans had in mind. That’s because WWE 2K22 isn’t launching this year as originally expected.
Announced over the weekend, WWE 2K22 will instead be shipping call at March 2022, which suggests that it’s been delayed somewhat. While we never had a rock-solid release date for the sport before, it had been expected to return out sometime in 2021. We don’t know tons about the sport now, but 2K Games has released the primary teaser trailer, which we’ve embedded below.
While fans could also be disappointed with this release date, there probably aren’t many of them who will object to 2K taking its time on WWE 2K22. The last game within the series – WWE 2K20 – launched during a rather poor state, netting negative reviews from critics and players alike. The controversy generated by WWE 2K20 prompted 2K Games to cancel WWE 2K21 outright and launch WWE 2K Battlegrounds in its place.
Even though 2K Games is keeping most details about WWE 2K22 covert, for now, a brief post on the company’s website does say that the sport will offer “new controls, stunning graphics, and a redesigned engine.” We’ll get to wait until the sport is here before judging it, but hopefully, those improvements make the longer-than-usual wait worthwhile.
Of course, although WWE 2K22 isn’t what the homerun fans could also be hoping for, it’s better than WWE 2K20. We’ll determine in March 2022, and within the meantime, we’ll keep an eye fixed for a more specific release go back 2K Games.
