The release of the WWE 2K22 Game has been delayed, out of its usual Survivor Series
release window (late November) to March 2022.
WWE’s mass budget cuts have hindered the release of WWE 2K22, and now it is
expected to get on the floor in March 2022.- This would mean that 2021 will be the
first year without any WWE video game release since 1997.
According to Sports Games Online’s report, the first DLC package for WWE 2K22 was
based around the released WWE NXT Star Bronson Reed, but the plans for the DLC
content became obsolete after Reed’s release.
The report further revealed that a minimum of four released superstars was
originally supposed to be a part of the DLC package. WWE 2K20 wasn’t a big hit as its
previous versions, and the makers are hoping to revitalize the franchise with some
enhancement across the parameters in WWE 2K22. Therefore, after the budget cuts,
the makers are taking their time to get things done thoroughly.
The development team at 2K Sports and Visual Concepts has jostled the plans
resulting in at least two DLC packages getting scrapped over the last four months.
The new idea popping up right now for Visual Concepts is to release standard-title
updates throughout the game’s lifecycle, which will include new Superstars and new
or updated gimmicks. However, that rumor has not been confirmed as of yet.
The makers are not in any hurry and don’t want to talk about concrete plans
regarding DLC. We will keep you updated if there are any further changes or updates
in the DLC plans.
