WWE 2K19 has had no official announcements on new features or additions. However, strong implications from Twitter point to new work for this year’s game.
WWE 2K19 Female Animations
Despite E3 nearing, 2K has been relatively quiet regarding WWE 2K19. Unofficially, rumors and speculation have already begun mounting. Via Twitter, Santana Garrett mentions heading to California to film for a video game.

Filming could easily be referring to motion capture depending on Garrett’s familiarity with jargon or intentional misdirection. Additionally, it’s no secret that 2K’s capture studio is based in Petaluma, California. Santana is also on the list of talent who captured for last year’s game as well.
There are plenty of new moves that need to be implemented as well as some older ones getting a redux. Due to 2K’s tight-lipped behavior, I would hope this means they are looking to come out swinging this year. Perhaps women characters will get a bit more love this year in the animation department. Perhaps there will be more female variant animations to reduce the model stretching when pulling off animations for male dominated moves. It is also possible Garrett is headed for a completely separate game and genre. Time will tell.
