There’s no denying that WWE 2K20 made wrestling video game history. But it’s just as undeniable that he did it in a way that 2K would have done without. The industrial disaster was such that the American publisher WWE 2K21 did not leave to give the game developers more time to get back on a better basis. A year and a half after WWE 2K20 was released, WWE 2K22 is debuted for the first time.

Last Thursday, 2K invited media representatives to virtually take part in a surprise preview of the very first teaser of WWE 2K22
As an introduction to this video, Al Stavola, 2K Global Communications Manager, wanted to provide some details on how 2K will progress this year. In addition to releasing that first teaser earlier in the year than the publisher normally does (WWE 2K games have been released to the press as part of SummerSlam for the past few years) The latter usually want to show things earlier than usual and improve their transparency. He also promises that they will communicate more often than before.
More information, faster
like WWE 2K20, WWE 2K22 is developed by Visual Concepts (NBA 2K). And as the slogan for this year’s episode, 2K chose “It hits differently“While explaining the pun in English isn’t really helpful”It hits differently“is a way for the publisher to show that if the game is different (content, gameplay, etc.) then everything that is about it will be different (marketing, relationship with the community, etc.).”
Al Stavola explains that WWE 2K22 represents the first step on the path the series will take in the years to come. It also promises to spread a lot of content dealing with behind the scenes of the game (motion capture, modeling, etc.).
The teaser itself is simply a question of a long video of a few tens of seconds. The latter is offered by the real Rey Mysterio as well as its virtual version. The latter is also shown in the middle of the fight against Cesaro.
Jeu service in depth
As a reminder, 2K announced last June that WWE 2K22 based on a new “philosophical basis“and that the title could take the path of the game service. the hour in which these lines are written, WWE 2K22 has no release date or platform announcement. However, it wouldn’t be surprising if the game were released next fall, at least on PS5, Xbox Series X | S and PC.
