Representatives of 2K are slated to be at today's WWE Royal Rumble in Tampa, Florida.

We are told that 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.

I really hope Covid didn't hurt 2K22s development too much, there is so much riding on this one. As a fan of non-2D sim, I hope they don't blow it. I'm just worried because I'm fairly certain at least partially the problem with 2K22 was bringing in a bunch of new blood devs, and working from home cannot have made things easier for them.

Neato. Fingers crossed we get an intricate GM Mode & Create a Story this year. If not, well, 2k19 on PC has proven to have a pretty great lifespan with Parsec and modding.

I know most of the moves and animations from 2K20 have been nodded into 2K19, but have mods managed to re-enable rope shake?

here comes the months of speculation regarding why "X isn't in this game,  but he/she was scanned!" and all that discourse.

not a dime on this game until I see confirmed, close-to-launch, gameplay. actual gameplay.

If they are scanning all WWE/NXT Superstars, finally we will be getting a great looking Edge.

Hoping there will be no original DLC. Hated 2K20 more because of that. If they are giving us additional attires for CAWS just include it in the DLC packs.

Uh, that gives me hope that they will have Carlito in the game if he sticks around...that would be...cool.XD

While the whole covid thing sucks, i hope this gives the wrestlers and 2k more time to finetune the scanning and stuff.
They dont have fan meetings and all that press stuff due to the pandemic, should give them a bit more breathing room, i hope.

Hopefully that means a new Edge face for 2k22, the one we had the last few years...sucked.
We will see, when was the first time we heard infos etc about the 2k games? Around the E3 or later?
It will be interesting to see what the additional year did...or not.

that would be really sweet, as well as der ring general !

Our friend would say there's no such thing as a "lock" for these games, but WALTER has been UK champ for so long that I fully expect him to be on the roster,

I doubt Carlito makes the game. I think it's just the reactionary thing to say because he was just in the Rumble. That being said, maybe Victoria makes the Hall of Fame this year and gets in the game via Legends deal, who knows? It would be cool either way; I just doubt it unless they sign him again as an active competitor and we see him regularly.

I cant think of anyone who is supposed to be in the game that isn't. NXT was developmental, and so only a number of them made it in. Now that they're on a major network, I expect more and more NXT to appear. From NXT UK, I'm only expecting the champions. So, WALTER, Kay Lee Ray, and everyone who has held the tag titles, I expect to see in the game. There's no such thing as a lock because anyone can get in trouble or even released from now until the game comes out, and if the reason is bad enough, or WWE is feeling petty enough, that person won't make the game. For now, I think everyone who should be in the game will be in the game, because all 3 shows are on network television. I'm talking about obvious people who are key to the shows. I don't think another Ciampa incident will be happening again.

I took some liberties, but you get the idea. Lol. Most of those new people are gonna make it in there or something’s wrong. I guess Big Show won’t be making the cut anymore. Shame. I like the big guys being in the games.

 

I don’t know if this means anything, but Patrick Gilmore almost never likes or retweets anything on Twitter. He liked this comment/picture:

which could mean nothing major...OR...could be an early confirmation that the new game is coming in October. Make of that what you will.

Its funny. Back in the day THQ went way overboard with their marketing and constantly oversold their games because of it, whereas 2K tends to take an infuriating minimalesque route on marketing the game.

This year, i'd like them to try and find a good middle gorund. 2K20 was such a bloody disaster, they need to market this well and focus that marketing on the improvements they've made (and they need to give assurances that its not going to be a bug riddled hellscape).

There's a decent conversation going on right now over at 2K's forums about how one would go about marketing the game this year and I honestly have no clue. I mean, what do you wanna see? How soon do you want to see it and why? How do you want it presented to you? I don't know, because I've become so accustomed to knowing nothing until we're like a month out from release. Then, no matter what all they've worked on these past 2 years, there's things they can't start working on 'til after Wrestlemania happens, so..... it's tough being in the dark from something you love like this. We want to know that they got the message with 2K20 and what all they've been working on, I suppose. But is there anything we NEED to see right now or even 3 months from now? It's a tough call.

The last few years the minimalistic marketing was horrible.
A lot i think has to do with the timespan of development and stuff like the time when they do the scanning of the people, because they do want to make the game as up to date as possible.

I would like to have a steady marketing, then i have no problem it being 2-3 months before release.
But it needs to be steady and transparent.
Give me early a few screens and some features etc, and im happy for a while, but when it goes on, go all out.

I loved the suplex city wrestler reveal thing, that was cool as hell.
And i know they cant do wrestler of the day because you cant do that when the roster is 100+ strong.
But i would love to see wrestlers of the day, maybe showing 3-4 a day.
I just love this idea of showing us the entrance and the signature/finisher...its a cool concept.
Maybe with a new highlight reel system they could even do it in a cool style, i dont know.

Another problem i feel is that the wwe doesnt seem to take the wwe2k series as important as they might should do.
Yeah they do the marketing and all, but when you hear how they worked with the developers over the years, it seems the importance is not that huge.

It would now be the perfect time to fully use the fact that the wrestlers dont have houseshows and such a packed calendar, to bring them to the 2k studio for motion capture and stuff...if they want to.
Imagine entrances and moves not done by development talent, but by the real wrestlers...that would be so cool.
I know that is asking quite a lot, but that would be sweet.
But i think that goes a bit off topic, sorry.

All I know is, after the shitstorm that was 2K20? I am expecting a LOT of improvements. I want a game that *censored*ing works on release day, an image uploader that *censored*ing works, and countless more fixes!

YES ! AGREED ! Im pissed that I cant do these images because the image loader problem was "fixed" awhile ago despite the fact that they clearly lied about it. I have made alot of images that i would like to use/see in game but cant due to unspecified errors, not being banned or anything but something on their end, most likely if I were a betting man its because I also had 2k19 on my PS4 as well as 20.
