WWE 2K22 is now out in the wild for Early Access players, with the standard game arriving tomorrow, March 11th. However, after a lengthy delay following 2K20's less-than-stellar launch, it turns out this latest entry could be the last WWE game from publisher 2K.
According to a currently-paywalled report by Fightful (thanks, Gamespot), WWE is considering a switch to publisher EA, who of course, develops a whole suite of sports games. Here's what Fightful's report says:
Multiple sources have stated that WWE has had preliminary discussions with EA about bringing the WWE Games line over to one of the top gaming publishers in the world...
It could be that the wrestling organisation is waiting to see how WWE 2K22 performs. After all, this year's title has switched developer — from Yuke's to Visual Concepts — in an effort to improve the game.
So far, that switch is proving fruitful, although this year's game is hardly receiving critical acclaim across the board. WWE 2K22 is definitely a step in the right direction though, and only time will tell whether 2K manages to hold on to the license.
