Major Update on WWE 2K Future, WWE Says No Agreement

It’s too soon to pop the champagne on WWE 2K continuing past WWE 2K22.

On Wednesday night, WWE Games put out a Tweet alluding to the continuing of the partnership between WWE and 2K Sports.

Shoutout to @WWE and @StephMcMahon for the continued partnership and an amazing launch of #WWE2K22,” the Tweet reads. “Here’s to many more years of success!”

Even Tweets from other 2K staff members hinted at an extension based on wording alone.

After reports — from SGO and other outlets — began to make the rounds on Thursday of an extension being alluded to, more information came to light about the situation. In fact, the post had nothing to do with an extension at all, despite its wording.

“This was a celebratory photo for our game launch. Not an announcement of an extension,” a member of the WWE PR team told SGO.

When asked for any update on the status of the WWE Games license, the same PR staff member said that there was nothing to share “at this time.”

SGO did reach out to sources earlier in the day with one member of the 2K team saying that nothing was mentioned internally about the future of WWE 2K. They specifically said that the current focus is on “support and updates of the current game”.

The Tweet that had many believing an extension was reached

It was recently reported via Fightful Select that WWE had spoken with EA about an agreement for the WWE Games licensing, though the nature of the depth of talks isn’t known. The last WWE Games licensed signed between WWE and 2K came in 2016, and was for six years.

SGO is working on learning more about the future of the WWE 2K franchise and will provide any details as they are provided.


 

**NOTE: SGO took down the original report that used the tweet as the source of the announcement. Please consider this update as a retraction and an update on the news.**
