We’ve been waiting patiently, now it’s set to pay off with the as-promised arrival of WWE 2K22 this March.

The time away has been used to rebuild the game engine from the ground up, plus we can look forward to new controls, improved graphics, and a selection of shiny new game modes.

Whether you opt for the standard or Deluxe Edition, Rey Mysterio is this year’s cover star, in celebration of his 20th anniversary as a WWE Superstar.

“Representing the culture of lucha libre as the cover Superstar for WWE 2K22 is a moment of great pride for me,” said Mysterio. “I’m looking forward to sharing the stories behind the big moments of my career with a dedicated community of players and connecting with WWE fans in a whole new way as they play through my 2K Showcase.”

March 11 is the day, when WWE 2K22 arrives on PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4 and Xbox One. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
