Right in time for Wrestlemania

2K Games has announced that WWE 2K22 will be releasing on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC on March 11.

Alongside the release date info, 2K also revealed that beloved high-flier Rey Mysterio will be the cover star for the upcoming wrestling game. Mysterio will also be the focus of the game’s Showcase Mode, allowing players to take part in pivotal matches throughout the luchador’s illustrious career.

As per usual, 2K22 will have multiple different editions for players to choose from, all of which include a pre-order bonus that unlocks the Undertaker Immortal Pack that includes three different variations of The Deadman. Below are the various editions on offer:

You can pre-order both the Standard and Deluxe Editions from JB Hi-Fi, setting you back $99 ($79 for old gen) and $149 respectively. The Collector’s Edition is exclusive to EB Games and will set you back $199.95. And, of course, you can pre-order the NWO 4-Life Edition through the Xbox Store, the PlayStation Store and Steam for $179.95.

WWE 2K22 is set to be the return of the annualised releases after 2K cancelled last year’s game following the rough reception from 2K20. We did get WWE 2K Battlegrounds in 2020, but it was far from a hit with wrestling fans (we gave it a 6.5). This new entry will include a large roster, new modes and the return of the fan-favourite GM Mode.
