With 2022 finally here, wrestling fans everywhere are counting down to when they’ll get the promised full slate of details surrounding the upcoming release of WWE 2K22 in January. The excitement is so high that some fans have started to believe that the announcement will come on the very first day of the year.
WWE is holding its first ever “Day 1” pay per view (PPV) event on Saturday night, leading to many thinking that something will be revealed during the day or show itself. After talking to a source within the WWE 2K team, however, that isn’t going to be the case.
“I don’t think the WWE 2K team would ever make a major announcement on a weekend, especially not a holiday,” the source said.
The next major event for WWE after “Day 1” is it’s annual Royal Rumble PPV. That takes place on the last Saturday of the month, which would have the announcement come at the very last minute. Instead of waiting until then, the majority — if not all — of the remaining WWE 2K22 announcements should be coming the week prior to the event, allowing for extra buzz during the build up.
WWE 2K22 launches this March. Consoles haven’t been confirmed just yet, but it’s expected to be available at least on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. There have been plenty of rumblings regarding the lack of a true next-gen version of the game on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, but there’s been no confirmation either way.
