- WWE fans should mark their calendars for January 22nd as some kind of reveal for WWE 2K24 is happening on that day.
- WWE 2K24 is expected to raise the bar even higher.
- The inclusion of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Special Guest Referee matches may be hinted at in WWE 2K24, exciting fans who missed this feature in the previous installment.
WWE fans should definitely keep an eye on Monday, January 22, as a reveal for the upcoming WWE 2K24 will be taking place that day. The WWE 2K series has been going strong since the well-reviewed WWE 2K22, with the following year’s WWE 2K23 building on what came before and delivering an even better product. Expectations are high for WWE 2K24 to raise the bar even higher, and it will be interesting to see exactly what the new game brings to the table.
Prior to WWE 2K taking a year off after WWE 2K20‘s disastrous launch, WWE fans got used to the games being revealed around SummerSlam and then released in the fall. The extended development of WWE 2K22 saw the franchise’s release schedule shift a bit so that now the games are revealed around Royal Rumble time and released closer to WrestleMania. It looks like WWE 2K24 is continuing that tradition, if recent social media posts are any indication.
What to Expect From WWE 2K24 in 2024
Although it is unannounced, fans can already have a few reasonable expectations when it comes to WWE 2K24 and its release next year.
WWE 2K24 recently revealed its logo and updated its Twitter profile to say “more to come 1.22.24,” indicating a big reveal for the game is set for Monday, January 22. It’s hard to say exactly what WWE 2K24 will reveal come January 22; perhaps it will reveal its cover athlete, or if fans are really lucky, show off some gameplay footage. Since January 22 is a Monday, it’s possible that the WWE 2K24 reveal will be paired with Monday Night Raw, but the exact timing has not been provided just yet.
WWE 2K24 Reveal Happening on January 22
- WWE 2K24 Reveal Date: January 22
WWE 2K24 provided another interesting tease about what the new game might have up its sleeve come the January 22 reveal. The official WWE 2K Twitter account shared an image of a referee shirt with the sleeves cut-off, along with the skull emoji, perhaps hinting at the inclusion of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Special Guest Referee matches. Austin was featured as a Special Guest Referee in many matches after his retirement in 2003, including some extremely high profile matches, and so it would make sense to bring the match type back with Austin’s involvement.
Special Guest Referee matches were featured in previous WWE video games, but were not available in WWE 2K23, so many would be glad to see them make a comeback in WWE 2K24. Regardless, fans will definitely want to keep their eyes peeled on January 22 for more information.
