WWE 2K22 is a video game based on the pro-wrestling promotion WWE, developed for eight and ninth-generation for gaming consoles. This is the ninth game of the WWE 2K series. The first game of the series was released back in 2013 with the title 2K14. Since then, the publisher, 2K Games, has released a WWE 2K video game every year.
The last game in the year series was WWE 2k20 game. Upon its release, 2K and WWE faced severe backlash due to several bugs in 2K20. Multiple patches were released in the days following the release, but the game still did not live up to expectations. Hence, 2K skipped the release of 2K21 and instead released a WWE 2K Battleground game in 2020.
2K and Visual Concepts are working hard to avoid the repeat of the 2k20 debacle. And that is mainly the reason that details for 2K22 is hard to come by.
We will cover more details on the roster, release date and more info.
