On Saturday, I wrote about the WWE 2K20 being a total disaster. The game developers decided to cancel out WWE 2k21. The decision to cancel the upcoming game of the series happened in a meeting held between Investors. Afterward, WWE games twitter account tweeted that new exciting news is on the way.
In a new announcement, 2K Games have announced that WWE 2k21 will be replaced by the newer WWE 2K Battlegrounds. The newer game is set to release this year in autumn.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds has also gotten a trailer and its quite different from the normal WWE games. This one features the wrestlers having superpowers and more like cartoonish, so its kind of unrealistic.
Other games like NBA and Quake Champions have also gotten their Battlegrounds sort game. I’m not sure if the usual WWE game fans will like this idea or not.
Furthermore, it is being developed by Saber Interactive, who have also worked on NBA 2K Playgrounds and other games.
“The game is being developed by Saber Interactive, the studio behind NBA 2K Playgrounds, who have been hard at work on WWE 2K Battlegrounds and are excited to let you smell what they’re cookin’.”
2K Games also saw the resignation of their WWE games developer, who decided to make his own wrestling game. Hence, the WWE 2K20 project was handed out to someone else and it did not go well.
2K has now gotten a new executive developer, Patrick Gilmore. Patrick has made a lot of contributions to Amazon’s new World, and he will look forward to more WWE projects.
Lastly, 2K games have acknowledged their blunders, and according to them, they will learn from these mistakes.
“we hear you and we know you want more from the franchise, so here’s what we’re going to do: we are applying what we’ve learned to the next WWE 2K simulation game with a renewed focus on quality and fun. As part of that commitment, we are extending the production timeline and will not be releasing a WWE 2K simulation game in 2020 (T2 fiscal year 2021). We want to ensure the development team at Visual Concepts can create a great game that will entertain grizzled WWE 2K veterans, as well as newcomers who want to climb through the ropes and step into the ring for the very first time.”
