Further Details About WWE 2K22 GM Mode Emerge
WWE 2K Creative Director Lynell Jinks has provided further details about what gamers can expect from the GM Mode in WWE 2K22.
One of the most popular modes in the WWE games of years gone by, 2K have confirmed that GM Mode is finally making a long-awaited return in the upcoming WWE 2K22 game, which is scheduled for release in March 2022.
New comments from Jinks seem to indicate that WWE 2K22's GM Mode - called 'MyGM' - will be slightly different to what fans have become used to from previous games, revealing that prospective 'general managers' will need to build up their reputations in a career-centric style.
Speaking on Smacktalks’ latest video, Jinks said: "Players can expect to draft Superstars, book matches, manage contracts and prove you have what it takes to run the most successful brand in sports entertainment.
“In MyGM, players will progressively work their way up from running shows in high school gyms to prime-time TV."
Previous iterations of GM Mode allowed players to immediate take control of either Raw, SmackDown or ECW. It appears, however, that players may need to earn that responsibility in the WWE 2K22 version.
Speaking about general presentation improvements being made to the wider game, Jinks added: "WWE 2K22 offers the most authentic atmosphere seen in the franchise from the second you load in.
“The focus on quality isn’t limited to inside the ring – for WWE 2K22 we consulted with the WWE showrunners and added an all-new game director with virtual cameramen and hundreds of action-packed new angles.
“The crowd comes to life with new rooting sections, audience anticipation of big moves, and hours and hours of new commentary to punctuate the action.”
