While not too much was shown, WWE Games is touting that WWE 2K22 will feature new controls, much-improved graphics, and perhaps most importantly, a redesigned engine. A proper trailer has yet to be revealed, but it does seem like we’re getting closer to more coming out from the game.
Following the particularly rough launch of WWE 2K20 — which saw the game launch as a broken, glitchy game that was quickly panned by fans and critics — WWE Games decided to take a year off, canceling the release of WWE 2K21 to instead focus on fixing the issues throughout the series.
