WWE 2K20 was a complete disaster. Despite making history by putting "The Man" Becky Lynch on the cover alongside Roman Reigns, reviews were negative thanks to the game being yet another retread of what we'd seen the year before, while there so many glitches and bugs when it later went on sale, it made headlines for essentially being unplayable.
Last week, 2K Games confirmed that we won't be getting 2K21 this year, as they're instead releasing the awful looking WWE Battlegrounds, a cartoony effort which looks like it should be some sort of bonus feature in the main series (similar to the "Zombies" mode in the Call of Duty games).
They have, however, promised "a renewed focus on quality and fun" in WWE 2K22, a title we won't see until next year. By then, new consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be available, and that alone should ensure a big step forward in quality for the series. With that in mind, we can't help wonder how 2K will reboot the franchise in order to put it back on the right track.
