After the desperately poor WWE 2K20, publisher 2K Sports made the unprecedented move to take a year away from wrestling. The series will return this year, however, with WWE 2K22 – announced during WrestleMania overnight. Specific details are still, of course, forthcoming – but here’s a first look at Rey Mysterio in action.
The series has been in a strange spot ever since the departure of long-time developer Yuke’s; NBA 2K developer Visual Concepts took the lead on WWE 2K20, but clearly didn’t have enough time to create a functional product. With a year away to lick its wounds, the hope is that WWE 2K22 will be a return to form – no platforms have been officially announced just yet, although there is speculation it may be PlayStation 4 only.
