I been buying and playing WWE in video game form since SmackDown vs RAW 2008 and each year the roster gets bigger and game play stays the same and that’s fine with me. Give me an updated roster, a few new match types and I’ll be happy.
In recent years, since 2K took over there’s always a gimmick to buying a WWE 2K game. Remember the first time you got to play as the Ultimate Warrior or Randy Savage in 2K14. In 2K15 Sting was the big get and my favorite in recent years 2K17, that was a great DLC roster with Kerry & Kevin Von Erich, Freebirds, and Wolf Pac Sting. In the last two years 2K’s main force was Kurt Angle, and Ronda Rousey.
With WWE 2K20 coming up later this year, my question is… Who will they focus on to be the buying point for said game? We already have Goldberg, Lesnar, Lita, and Trish Stratus playable. And there’s not too many legends left with drawing power that we haven’t seen in one of these games.
My theory is… 2K20 will focus on one of two things. 1. the Women’s Revolution, and have Becky Lynch be on the cover and the selling point would be her Road to WrestleMania. Or 2. make NXT, NXT UK more prevalent and have the cover be someone from NXT & NXT UK.
At this point in the game I don’t see how WWE or 2K can top themselves. A lot of wishful thinking would have to happen. CM Punk, Hogan, or even Owen Hart but I don’t see any of that happening any time soon.
