WWE will not be getting a typical pro wrestling video game this year. 2k Games revealed a totally new idea is on the way.

2k released a detailed announcement which was posted on WWE’s official website. They provided some new information about the upcoming 2k Battlegrounds game. This new game will be developed by the same company behind the NBA 2k Playgrounds series to give it that arcade feel.

The game is being developed by Saber Interactive, the studio behind NBA 2K Playgrounds, who have been hard at work on WWE 2K Battlegrounds.

They kept hope alive for the previous WWE 2k series as well. 2k is keeping their WWE 2k19 servers open after receiving a lot of feedback. This is fantastic news for fans of that edition of the game.


WWE 2K20 OriginalsDLC expansions to build on and improve the experience. We’ve also heard your requests to keep the WWE 2K19 servers running; they will remain active for the time being.

They are still committed to develop another WWE 2k title. The studio simply needs more time to get it done. “Grizzled WWE 2k veterans” were mentioned and it is 2k’s goal to make them much happier next time around.

As part of that commitment, we are extending the production timeline and will not be releasing a WWE 2K simulation game in 2020 (T2 fiscal year 2021). We want to ensure the development team at Visual Concepts can create a great game that will entertain grizzled WWE 2K veterans, as well as newcomers who want to climb through the ropes and step into the ring for the very first time.        

No exact release date was revealed for WWE 2k Battlegrounds. It is announced for a Fall 2020 release date. It looks like a fun experience if you’re into arcade gaming. This is a departure from the traditional series, but it sounds like the regular WWE 2k series will be back.
