Following the leak last week, Take-Two has now officially announced WWE 2K23, which arrives for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on March 17th, 2023, with three days of early access for the Deluxe and Icon Editions.
This year's game comes with a variety of "franchise advancements", including the brand-new WarGames match type, a 2K Showcase starring John Cena focused around his 20-year career, improvements to MyGM including multiple seasons and expanded match cards, online multiplayer support for MyFaction, a reworked story system for Universe mode, another new MyRise campaign, and much more. It's sounding pretty awesome so far!
"Incredibly realistic graphics, animations, camera angles and lighting, plus accessible controls and a new optional pinning mechanic will add to the highly immersive experience."
Pre-orders are available for WWE 2K23 on Xbox starting today, but unfortunately there's no Smart Delivery support once again, so the Xbox One version is separate to the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S version. You can also buy the Cross-Gen Edition, while the Deluxe Edition includes the Season Pass along with various MyFaction benefits, and the Icon Edition includes a special "Ruthless Aggression Pack" of DLC.
"The Icon Edition includes the Ruthless Aggression Pack, celebrating 20 years of John Cena’s WWE career by featuring John Cena’s early “Prototype” character, as well as “Leviathan” Batista, developmental rookie versions of Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton, the John Cena Legacy Championship and WrestleMania 22 Arena."
Everyone who pre-orders the game will also receive the "Bad Bunny Bonus Pack".
