The WWE 2K series of video games continues to get mixed responses from fans over the years. While they have provided great games such as 2K19, they also released WWE 2k20, which was universally panned. It seems Rey Mysterio will be on the cover of the game.

WWE 2K22 was announced during WrestleMania 37 and finally, during WWE SummerSlam, it was announced that the game will release this year in March, as opposed to last year.

As reported earlier, the WWE 2K22 had to delay the release of the game due to WWE releasing so many talents this year. Ultimately, the delay caused the relationship between WWE and 2k to become ‘really strained.

The WWE 2K developers took to Twitter and uploaded a video that featured Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman, as they referenced Heyman betraying Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble.

It also mentioned Roman Reigns’ rating in the upcoming game, which was 95. However, it seems using Brock Lesnar’s betrayal didn’t go quite as planned as fans clowned the video on Twitter.

We will have to wait and see how WWE 2k22 will turn out to be this year as the future of the franchise solely rests on the success of the game. Judging by the latest updates, perhaps there is some hope left.
