The latest edition to the 2K WWE series is set to release on March 14th 2023. The cover superstar for the game this year around is John Cena, and fans all over are excited for this new release.

With John Cena gracing the cover for the second time, the developers have decided to shake things up this year with players facing the 16-time World Champion in the iconic WWE 2K Showcase mode. This is a fresh change from earlier titles where players used to compete as the cover superstar.

2K decided to unveil the DLC roadmap in WWE® 2K23 today. It features fan-favorite WWE Superstars, Legends and several rising NXT stars making their franchise debuts. There will be 5 DLC packs which would be released each month following the game’s launch.

Notable names from the post-launch content updates include Bray Wyatt, The O.C., The Steiner Brothers, Zeus, Wade Barrett, and Eve Torres. The DLC packs would be released each month following the game’s release until August.
