WWE 2K23 was officially greenlit as soon as WWE 2K22 launched to more welcoming arms, compared to its much-maligned predecessor. After taking a year off to make important adjustments, Visual Concepts found a winning formula that it could use as foundation for at least the next decade's worth of official WWE games. However, 2K Sports and Visual Concepts are relatively quiet about WWE 2K23, even though it's supposed to be announced anytime soon.
Now, according to a trusted report, WWE 2K23 will be officially revealed at the end of the month with a closed-door WWE 2K23 showcase happening a few days prior.
Insider Gaming claims to have gotten its hands on a copy of an invite sent to a handful of media personnel and content creators to attend an in-person WWE 2K23 reveal at the WWE Royal Rumble in San Antonio, Texas, on January 28.
Specifically, the invite reads as follows:
All event information will be embargoed through the following Tuesday, January 31 to allow for travel and content development.
This year's Royal Rumble, as every other year, will mark the official start of the Road to WrestleMania. Cody Rhodes will be a part of the 30-man lineup for the headliner event. Other names being thrown around as potential participants of the Royal Rumble include The Rock although the likelihood of The Great One appearing at the upcoming event is slim.
