It's official, WWE 2K22 is coming in March 11

2K Sports just confirmed the release date, cover star, and other important details about WWE 2K22

2K Sports knows that WWE 2K20 was not its best effort, which is why it skipped an entire year to work on WWE 2K22. After taking more time to polish WWE 2K22, it appears that Visual Concepts is finally ready to launch the game.

It appears that March and April will be a big month for WWE fans.

WWE 2K22's March 2022 release window has always been an open secret. However, this is the first time that 2K has officially confirmed the specific release date. According to 2K's latest announcement, WWE 2K22 will be released on March 11. But, if you pre-order the more expensive Deluxe Edition ($99.99) and nWo 4-Life Edition ($119.99), you'll get to play WWE 2K22 a few days earlier on March 8.

Unfortunately, it appears that WWE 2K22 will suffer from the same plight of other cross-gen games. 2K confirmed that the Standard Edition of WWE 2K22 will cost more on the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X ($69.99 vs $59.99), with a Cross-Gen Bundle ($79.99) also available albeit without the early access pre-order bonus.

The good news here is that there is still a pre-order bonus for buying the Standard Edition or Cross-Gen Bundle of WWE 2K22. As leaked earlier, the pre-order DLC for WWE 2K22 is the Undertaker Immortal Pack. This contains three different versions of The Undertaker: Phanom Mask, Lord of Darkness, and Boneyard March. On top of this, the pre-order pack comes with themed content in the MyFACTION game mode based on the Undertaker.

If you're wondering, the Undertaker Immortal Pack will also be available for those who pre-order the more expensive Deluxe Edition and nWo 4-Life Edition of WWE 2K22.

Finally, 2K Sports revealed WWE 2K22's cover athlete. Instead of going with a younger WWE superstar, 2K Sports went old school with this one and put the legendary high-flying acrobat, Rey Mysterio. Naturally, the 2K Showcase mode will feature the masked WWE wrestler's long and storied career in the WWE.

It's been a long time coming for WWE 2K22 to get here and fans are glad that 2K Sports has officially revealed when the game is coming. All we can do now is to wait for WWE 2K22 to arrive on March 11, which comes just a few weeks before WrestleMania 38 on April 3, 2022.
