There may be a brand new WWE 2K announcement on the way. Despite 2K’s other famed sports simulation game, NBA 2K18, already having gotten a launch date and other crucial related information like the cover star (it’s Kyrie Irving for the Standard edition and Shaquille O’Neal for the Legend Covers), its wrestling counterpart is yet to get any such details.
However, we do know that the new game is right on schedule, thanks to publisher Take-Two Interactive’s announcement during their earnings call. But now a series of new tweets seem to tell us that a more precise announcement is definitely on the way.
Over the past week, the WWE franchise has been teasing an announcement that is slated for this Monday. The tease has been accompanied with a number of props and figurines from the franchise’s long history. These, reports predict, will ultimately lead the way to the much-awaited reveal of this year’s WWE game, WWE 2K18.
There are reports about how the trailer may pan out too, with a villain breaking into the “WWE Archives” and destroying all the artefacts. The promo video will apparently reveal Kurt Angle as a playable character- he will be the one trying to bring the culprit to light.
Kurt Angle’s inclusion has long been rumored in WWE 2K18, and many have speculated that the Olympics Gold Medalist may be featured on the cover for this year’s edition. However, new rumors point to the honour of gracing the WWE 2K18 cover will go to none other than Seth Rollins.
The fact that Rollins will be a part of WWE 2K18 in a big way has been at the core of recent speculation. The report above states that the one vandalizing the WWE Archive- the man Kurt Angle’s character is trying to hunt down- will be played by Rollins himself. Besides, there is an announcement coming up from Rollins soon, which it is believed will shed light on his status as the WWE 2K18 cover star.
Amidst all the rumors swirling around about the cover star for WWE 2K18, it has also been hinted that the game might come to the Switch console. A retailer leak from last week suggested as much, and while the posting has since been removed, it does not seem too far-fetched, especially because 2K’s own NBA 2Kis has been confirmed for the Switch.
We suppose new information about the upcoming entry will be rolled out soon after the trailer reveal, and subsequent announcements will pertain to WWE 2K18 release date, price information, and much more. Keep an eye on our page for all the latest news regarding WWE 2K18.
