Work is beginning on future WWE 2K video games titles, according to a report from Mike Johnson of PWInsider.
Johnson's report states that representatives of 2K Games are slated to be at WWE's Royal Rumble in St. Petersburg on Sunday.
According to the report, "WWE talents will be recording voiceovers for the next edition of the game today. There are also plans for most of, if not the entire roster, to be scanned for future inclusion in upcoming editions of the WWE 2K video game series."
The last "traditional" WWE wrestling game released by 2K was WWE 2K20, which came out in October 2019. The game was almost universally panned for the various bugs and technical issues, as well as a perceived overall regression in quality.
The planned 2K21 game was cancelled in April 2020, owed both to the poor sales and reception for 2K20, and the pandemic. Amid reports that 2K21 was cancelled, it was said that focus would go toward 2K22 deeper in the future.
In lieu of an annual traditional wrestling title, 2K instead released the more cartoonish WWE 2K Battlegrounds this past September.
