Four months ago, we received official confirmation during WrestleMania weekend that the WWE 2K franchise would be back in business. Take-Two and the WWE in early April announced WWE 2K22, a title that is expected to be the franchise’s first foray into the next generation of consoles. During Summerslam, WWE fans were shown first look into WWE 2K22, plus some new details about the game.

First, let’s take a look at the trailer, which featured WWE superstars Roman Reigns, Finn Balor, Bobby Lashley, and Bayley, among others. Take-Two touted that the new game will feature new controls and a redesigned game engine.

As far as a release date, WWE and Take-Two did not specify a release date. But, the two sides did confirm that the new game will launch next year in March.

This will be a bit of a different timeline than what WWE fans are typically accustomed to. Traditionally, WWE games, specifically WWE 2K titles, have launched in the fall. Last year’s WWE 2K Battlegrounds, an arcade-style wrestling game, was released in September, following that pattern.

While this will be a bit later than usual, WWE will promote the new game alongside next year’s WrestleMania, which will take place on April 3 in Dallas, Texas.
