WWE 2K20 Release Date confirmed with new trailer and gameplay features

2K Games has officially announced the details surrounding the next WWE 2K20 release including confirmation of the covers stars, release dates and the various editions that will be available to buy.

As suspected, the current Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and WWE Superstar Roman Reigns will both act as the cover Superstars for WWE® 2K20.

WWE 2K20 is currently scheduled for worldwide release on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. 

There’s no word on Nintendo Switch, which we assume means that for 2019 the switch edition of the game has been thrown over the top rope and eliminated from the ring.

Players who purchase the WWE 2K20 Deluxe Edition or Collector’s Edition will receive in-game bonuses, including playable Superstars Chyna, Hulk Hogan, Mankind and The Rock, in addition to the Standard Edition game.

“My career has been about breaking barriers and doing what nobody else has done before. Being the first female Superstar on the cover of a WWE 2K video game is no exception,” said Becky Lynch.

In addition to Lynch, Roman Reigns also added:

“As a gamer myself, being on the cover of WWE 2K20 alongside ‘The Man’ Becky Lynch and joining the likes of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena is a huge career and personal milestone for me.”

According to a press release sent out, WWE 2K20 has been made “in direct response to fan feedback”. As such it will include several franchise firsts alongside streamlined gameplay and a variety of popular modes.

Here’s some more info direct from 2K:

“The story-driven, objective-based 2K Showcase: The Women’s Evolution will follow the careers of the Four Horsewomen – Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks.

“Controls will be streamlined to allow new players to jump into the game more easily, while experienced players will still enjoy a challenge.

“In addition, WWE 2K20 players will be able to compete as both male and female Superstars in MyCAREER and Mixed Tag matches, while last year’s popular WWE Towers returns with exciting new challenges, including a story-driven Tower centered around the career of Roman Reigns.

“The game will also introduce a new service model – WWE 2K20 Originals – set to deliver a wealth of 2K Showcase add-on content for player exploration beyond the game’s initial launch.

“Each of the WWE 2K20 Originals will present a new playable world and its own unique theme, with more details to be announced in the coming months. WWE 2K20 Originals is downloadable content that may require additional purchase.”

In addition, 2K today announced details surrounding what will be included in the WWE 2K20 Deluxe and Collectors edition, which you’ll find underneath.
