More news was promised for January 2022, but as 2K Sports admits, it simply couldn’t keep quiet any longer. Here’s the headline: WWE 2K22 looks like it could actually deliver, after years of dreadful wrestling games. This is definitely a teaser trailer, with more information to follow next year, but it should be enough to have fans salivating.
The video emphasises ten additions and improvements, with the new gameplay engine, controls, and visuals getting top billing. The proof will be in the pudding on that front, but it sounds like the release will have the longevity that some of its predecessors have lacked as well. Yes, MyGM is making a return, putting you in charge of the “most successful brand in sports entertainment”.
Elsewhere, MyFaction will see you managing and mentoring a faction of superstars, while MyRise will plot your path from rookie to superstar. Then there’s Universe Mode and Creation Suite, which promise to give you unparalleled control over your game and the matches you want to see. Visual Concepts is talking a big game here.
From what we’ve seen around the web, wrestling fans are definitely excited by this round of reveals, and are eager to see more of what else the developer has to share. The release was originally due out in 2021, but has been delayed into March 2022. Bizarrely, no platforms have been announced yet, but we’re confident this is coming to the PlayStation 5 – and maybe even the PS4 as well
If the GTA Definitive Edition has taught us anything:
Wait for reviews of the game to come out before deciding to purchase a game.
After the disaster that was WWE 2K20, anyone buying this day 1 is a brave soul or just has money to blow
🤣🤣🤣 I'm waiting for the glitch video of this to come out. Bound to be hilarious
Looks like how I like my wrestling - campy! Looking forward to some longed for innovations.
WOW it looks good but will it play good. Makes me excited to see havent played WWE since like 2014 so i cant wait yo see more.
I hope it's good, I'm more excited for the AEW roster but I doubt the AEW game will have the budget to make it so feature rich - particularly not on it's first go round.
I really hope so, as not played any wrestling games since 2004 as they've all been terrible
More interested in what the AEW game might look like. It's got a roster that's far more appealing to me.
@Netret0120 Cyberpunk should have done thqr already. 🤪
Will it be as good as Here Comes the Pain.
Actually looks pretty good. Here’s hoping this and the AEW game mean the devs push each other to be better.
Goldberg looked incredible in that video.
Interest has gone up with that trailer, still No Chance in Hell that I am preordering though…
I'm hoping the AEW game will be good and that it does well because this will drive competition between these games and when there's competition there's usually innovation and that would be great for wrestling games. This looks good so far and I'm looking forward to seeing more about it in the new year, hopefully it does what it says and has an impact because the last few have been pants.
Looks like it’s off to a good start. We don’t need another 2K20 on our hands.
Trailers tend to be amazing, but the games themselves have been lackluster for a while now. I doubt it, but hopefully they learned something from the last two disasters.
I really can't believe people would still be willing to pay actual money for these games still. I how many times to folks need to be taken for a ride before they finally learn. Even if this years game actually works surely no-one would be silly enough to buy it to find out?
It's daring to get my hopes up. Shame the current roster is so abysmal.
@TooBarFoo With the amount of sanguine folks in this comment section I daresay some will.
Macho Man Randy Savage on the roster or no sale
Looking forward to it. Last one I played was wwe2k15.
