As we approach the release of WWE 2K22, fans are wondering if the game will be available on PS4. Here’s what we know so far.
Checkout this video:
WWE 2K22 is an upcoming professional wrestling video game that is currently being developed by Visual Concepts and Yuke’s, and published by 2K Sports. It is the twenty-second installment in the WWE 2K series, based on the professional wrestling promotion WWE. The game will be released on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One consoles, as well as Microsoft Windows.
The current state of WWE 2K
As of right now, WWE 2K22 has not been announced for PS4. The last WWE game to come out was WWE 2K20, which released in October 2019. However, it is worth noting that WWE 2K21 was never released, and so far there has been no word on why. Therefore, it’s possible that WWE 2K22 will also not release, or that it will release on next-gen consoles instead of PS4. Only time will tell.
The future of WWE 2K
With WWE 2K21 being the last game in the series to be released on PS4, many fans are wondering if WWE 2K22 will be coming to the current generation console. The answer is not yet known, as 2K has not announced any plans for the next instalment in the series.
While it is possible that WWE 2K22 could be released on PS4, it seems more likely that it will be a next-gen exclusive. This would follow the pattern set by other sports games, such as NBA 2K22 and Madden NFL 22, which are both skipping PS4 and Xbox One in favor of PS5 and Xbox Series X.
If WWE 2K22 is coming to next-gen consoles, it will likely be released in late 2021 or early 2022. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
Why WWE 2K22 might not be on PS4
It’s been nearly two years since the release of WWE 2K20, and fans are eagerly awaiting the next instalment in the series. However, there are growing concerns that WWE 2K22 might not be released on PlayStation 4, due to the recent console transition.
WWE 2K20 was met with widespread criticism upon release, with many fans citing the game’s buggy and glitchy nature. This led to a significant drop in sales, and WWE 2K21 was subsequently cancelled.
With the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X now on the market, it’s possible that WWE 2K22 will be released exclusively on these next-gen consoles. This would certainly be a bold move from publisher 2K Games, but it’s one that could pay off in the long run.
Why WWE 2K22 could be on PS4
With WWE 2K21 recently being released on current-gen consoles, many fans are wondering if WWE 2K22 will also be released on PS4.
There are a few reasons why WWE 2K22 could potentially be released on PS4. First, WWE 2K21 was released on both current-gen and last-gen consoles, so it’s possible that WWE 2K22 could also be released on both generations of consoles.
Another reason why WWE 2K22 could be released on PS4 is that there are still a lot of PS4 players who haven’t upgraded to a PS5 yet. So, releasing WWE 2K22 on PS4 would give those players a chance to play the game.
Lastly, releasing WWE 2K22 on PS4 would also give players who don’t have a PS5 a chance to play the game. So, releasing WWE 2K22 on both current-gen and last-gen consoles would be the most inclusive way to release the game.
The bottom line
It’s still too early to say for sure, but it’s looking increasingly likely that WWE 2K22 will not be released on PlayStation 4. 2K Games has not yet announced any plans for the next installment in the WWE 2K series, but the most recent game in the series, WWE 2K20, was not released on PS4. Instead, it was released on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
2K Games has not given any official reason for why WWE 2K20 was not released on PS4, but it is speculated that the game was not up to the company’s quality standards. In recent years, the WWE 2K series has been plagued by poor reviews and low sales, so it’s possible that 2K Games decided to skip a release on PS4 in order to focus on improving the quality of the franchise.
Whatever the case may be, it’s looking increasingly likely that PlayStation 4 gamers will have to wait a little while longer for a new WWE game.
WWE 2K22 will not be released on PlayStation 4, according to a report by Gamstat. The WWE 2K series has been a PlayStation exclusive since 2013, when WWE ’13 was released on the PlayStation 3. WWE 2K14 was the first game in the series to be released on both PlayStation and Xbox platforms.
While it is not yet confirmed whether WWE 2K22 will be released on Xbox One, it is unlikely that it will be a PlayStation exclusive. The release of WWE 2K19 on Xbox One was delayed due to technical issues, and WWE has not announced any plans to release future games in the series exclusively on PlayStation platforms.
While there is no confirmation yet, it is heavily implied that WWE 2K22 will not be released on the PS4. In an interview with Gamespot, WWE Executive Paul “Triple H” Levesque said the following:
“As we think about where we want to go with the brand and how we want to evolve the franchise, part of it’s going through listening to our partners and our community to see what’s important to them and where they see growth. One of the things we heard coming out of last year’s game was a big miss was not being on PS4.”
It is worth noting that Levesque did not explicitly say WWE 2K22 would not be on PS4, but his comments make it seem unlikely.
