After a poorly received 2019 release, WWE and 2K took a year off to retool their video game franchise. But we knew they’d return, and on Night One of WrestleMania 37 on Sat., April 10, they announced the comeback.
Said announcement is very light on details, consisting of the above teaser video and this press release:
During the WrestleMania 37 broadcast, 2K and Visual Concepts revealed the very first teaser video for WWE® 2K22, featuring both live-action and stunning in-game footage of WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio.
In the teaser, Rey Mysterio, a high-flying lucha libre legend and one of the most exciting and decorated Superstars in WWE history, slips on his iconic mask, enters the ring, sets up his opponent, Cesaro, and connects with his electrifying 619 signature move. The video concludes with a note confirming WWE 2K22 will be coming soon and the tagline “It Hits Different.”
