The new MyFaction mode will allow players to create their roster of wrestlers. The WWE 2K22’s2 K showcase mode will be focused on Rey Mysterio’s long and distinguished career in the WWE. This is evident from the game’s choice of the cover artwork.

2K Games has struggled to create excitement for 2K22 following the controversy surrounding WWE 2K20. However, this is not the only obstacle the game has faced. The recent WWE firings and releases have had a significant impact on WWE 2K22’s roster. Visual Concepts was reportedly forced to abandon its plans to focus the single-player campaign on the rookie-focused NXT brand. According to outside reports, WWE 2K22 is expected to have one of its most out-of-date rosters. The game eventually cut previous WWE stars like Daniel Bryan after signing on with rival wrestling promotions like AEW.
Visual Concepts sees the logic in focusing WWE 2K22 on established WWE stars like Rey Mysterio or Undertaker. This is evident by WWE 2K22choices of cover wrestlers and pre-order DLC. Although the exact release date of WWE2K22 is not yet confirmed, it’s likely to be close to the March 8 early access date.
