WWE 2K23 is one of the most anticipated video game releases of the year for wrestling fans. With expanded features, enhanced graphics, and a diverse roster of WWE Superstars and Legends, the game promises to be even stronger than previous installments. However, the big question on everyone’s mind is when exactly will WWE 2K23 be released?
Official Release Time
As of this writing, 2K Sports has not yet announced an official release date for WWE 2K23. However, based on previous release schedules, it’s safe to assume that the game will most likely be launched in late October or early November. WWE 2K22 was released on October 22, 2021, so it’s possible that 2K Sports will stick with that timeframe for WWE 2K23.
If you’re a die-hard WWE fan who can’t wait to get your hands on WWE 2K23, you may be able to access the game a little earlier than everyone else. 2K Sports has previously offered early access to players who pre-order certain editions of the game or who subscribe to specific services.
For example, if you pre-ordered the Deluxe Edition of WWE 2K22, you were able to access the game four days early. Similarly, if you had a subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you could play the game two days before its official release.
It’s possible that 2K Sports will offer similar early access options for WWE 2K23, so keep an eye out for announcements in the coming months.
While we don’t know the release date yet, there’s already plenty of information available about what we can expect from WWE 2K23. One thing we know for sure is that the game will feature expanded gameplay and customization options.
One of the most exciting additions to WWE 2K23 is the return of the 2K Showcase mode. This mode is essentially an interactive sports documentary that focuses on a specific wrestler or rivalry. In WWE 2K23, 2K Showcase will center around John Cena and his 20-year career in the WWE.
Players will be able to relive some of Cena’s most iconic moments, from his debut against Kurt Angle to his unforgettable matches against The Rock and more. As they progress through the mode, they’ll unlock new Cena-inspired gear and moves that they can use in other modes.
Another exciting addition to WWE 2K23 is the WarGames mode. This match type was popularized in WCW and later adopted by WWE, but it has never been featured in a WWE 2K game before.
WarGames is a two-ring, steel cage match that involves multiple teams of wrestlers. The match is notorious for its brutality and has produced some of the most memorable moments in wrestling history. In WWE 2K23, players will be able to experience this iconic match type for themselves.
Finally, WWE 2K23 will offer an expanded Create-a-Wrestler feature. This mode has always been popular with players, as it allows them to create their own custom wrestlers and compete with them in various game modes.
In WWE 2K23, players will have even more customization options at their disposal. They’ll be able to create wrestlers with even more detailed appearances, movesets, and personalities. They’ll even be able to create their own finishers for their custom wrestlers.
Roster of WWE Superstars and Legends
Of course, no WWE game would be complete without a diverse roster of Superstars and Legends. WWE 2K23 promises to offer one of the most comprehensive rosters in the history of the franchise.
Players will be able to control some of the biggest names in WWE today, including Roman Reigns, Becky Lynch, Bobby Lashley, Charlotte Flair, Drew McIntyre, and many more. The game will also feature wrestlers from NXT, such as Raquel González and MSK.
In addition to current Superstars, WWE 2K23 will also feature a wide range of Legends from throughout wrestling history. Players will be able to play as wrestling icons like Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Hulk Hogan, and Bret Hart.
The game will also include Legends who haven’t been in a WWE game in years, such as Eddie Guerrero, Randy Savage, and Rick Rude. There will even be some surprise appearances from Legends who have never been in a WWE game before.
While we don’t know the official release date for WWE 2K23 yet, there’s already plenty of information available about what we can expect from the game. With expanded features like the 2K Showcase mode and WarGames, as well as an extensive roster of Superstars and Legends, the game promises to be one of the biggest and best entries in the franchise yet. Keep an eye out for more information in the coming months, as we get closer to the game’s release.
