Following a hiatus in 2020 due to the terrible reception to WWE 2K20, this year will see the series return with WWE 2K22 in a big way. While we don’t know too many details at this time of writing, you can rest assured that the WWE 2K22 will be pretty stacked.
With RAW, SmackDown, 205 Live, NXT and NXT UK to consider, there’s bound to be plenty of wrestlers in WWE 2K22, with many more sure to be released as DLC down the line. While WWE 2K20 had a truly gigantic, comprehensive roster that’s among the biggest ever, here’s hoping the WWE 2K22 roster has the gameplay to match.
Here’s everything you need to know about the WWE 2K22 roster.
All Confirmed WWE 2K22 Wrestlers
– Rey Mysterio
We will update the above as more get announced.
Rey Mysterio seems to be the mascot for the new game, being the first wrestler revealed with the teaser trailer focusing mostly on him. It’s not been confirmed, but it’s a safe bet that he will be the WWE 2K22 cover star.
For reference, WWE 2K20 had 238 playable wrestlers (though some of them are different styles) in total, not counting the post-launch DLC. WWE 2K22 will have a job on its hands to match that, and honestly it’s unlikely considering that the developers will be focusing more on gameplay and innovating the formula following the disaster that was 2K20, but you never know.
Even if the main roster isn’t all that beefed up, it’s almost certain that it will have tonnes of DLC to flesh things out more. And, if fewer wrestlers means that the action in the ring is better than it has been in a long time, we’re all for it.
It will be interesting to see how WWE 2K22’s roster shapes up compared to AEW’s, though based on the fact that the latter has much less talent, 2K22’s is going to have to really drop the ball to not stack up better.
WWE 2K22 is due to release sometime this year.
