After a long wait there is finally some news regarding the latest title into the wrestling video game series. WWE 2K22 was first announced back in April 2021 during Wrestlemania 37, since then the information regarding the game has been a bit scarce. However, we now have a brand new game trailer alongside a release date
Though we still do not know what platform this specific title will release on, one would assume it would launch on current gen consoles and PC. However, this is still to be confirmed.
As announced back in May, WWE 2K22 will feature a new scanning rig, with 80 high resolution cameras and all-new software to help give everything a high-precision 3D sculpt. A recent picture of the wrestling star, Edge, was posted a few days ago. Which has currently been met with high praise from fans and stating that this model is far better than the one used back in WWE 2K20. A photo comparison can be found below..
Considering that WWE 2K20 was released in 2019, only 4 years ago, and the fact it used out dated models that you would expect from the Playstation 2, you would expect fans were not happy. With this the WWE 2K franchise executive producer, Patrick Gilmore, has stated that WWE 2K22 will focus more on the quality of the game. Going by the recent photos of Edge, it seems that they are currently staying true to their word.
As far as the other potential wrestling stars that will make their appearance in this latest title, the only ones that have so far been confirmed are as follows;
- Roman Reigns
- Sheamus, Ricochet
- Shelton Benjamin
- Rhea Ripley
- Shinsuke Nakamura
- Jinder Mahal
- Dolph Ziggler
- Big E
- Kofi Kingston
- Drew McIntyre
- Finn Balor
- Rey Mysterio
- Booker T
- Bobby Lashley
- Ric Flair
- The Miz
- Randy Orton
- Angel Garza,
- and, of course as seen above, Edge.
Anyone else is purely rumors and speculation so far, though we would probably be right in thinking and expecting the bigwigs such as Triple H and Shane McMahon and from a more personal perspective we would hope the game would include other legends too such as Stone Cold Steve Austin. But as said anyone else other than those that have so far been confirmed, is all just a dream and anyone’s guess.
Moving slightly away from the various superstars and back to the various features. The game is also said to feature New Controls, Stunning Graphics, and a Redesigned Engine. All in hopes of bringing a much better and immersive gameplay experience.
The teams over at 2K and Visual Concepts have announced that more information regarding this latest wrestling title, will be coming at some point in January.
WWE 2K22 will be releasing in March 2022
