While a number of members of the roster have both retired from wrestling or handed away, VGC has famous that plenty of playable wrestlers have been let go from WWE over the previous yr. Over 100 superstars noticed their contracts terminated all through 2021, but a number of of them, particularly 36, are nonetheless featured within the new game.

It could appear unusual at first for them to be depicted in WWE 2K22 once they now not work for the corporate, particularly since some superstars have been launched as early as April 2021. But the game has been in improvement for some time so plans to incorporate these wrestlers have been possible already set in stone earlier than their departures. Some of them have solely not too long ago left as nicely, which means it’d be far too late to chop them from the game. Even in the event that they have been minimize, eradicating content material shortly earlier than WWE 2K22’s launch wouldn’t precisely sit nicely with followers.

WWE 2K22 definitely has excessive expectations to satisfy when it launches for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on March 8. WWE 2K20 was obtained so poorly by followers and critics, that writer 2K determined to skip making a 2021 game and provides WWE 2K22 an extended improvement cycle.
