Admittedly, this author’s knowledge of wrestling games isn’t as sharp as other genres, but as we understand it, General Manager modes have been popular in past WWE titles. WWE 2K22 will bring the feature back in the form of MyGM, which looks and sounds similar to NBA 2K22’s headline MyNBA mode.
Effectively, you’ll be able to pick from one of four different general managers – or create your own, of course – and you’ll be responsible for running your very own wrestling franchise. You’ll need to sign free agents, develop storylines, and build-up to the kind of match-ups that your fans want to see. All of this will boost ratings, increasing interest in your brand.
It certainly looks deep in the trailer, and developer Visual Concepts has a great track-record putting together these kinds of modes in the NBA 2K series, so hopes will certainly be high. Obviously, publisher 2K Sports is banking on this game reviving the franchise’s fortunes, after WWE 2K20 was ridiculed for launching in a torrid state.
