WWE 2K21 Has Been Canceled – Rumor
The next installment in the WWE 2K franchise may not arrive this year, according to a former writer for the series. Justin Leeper says that “reliable sources” have confirmed that WWE 2K21 has been completely canceled, but 2K will be publishing a “different WWE game” in 2020.
Leeper, who worked as a writer on WWE SmackDown Vs. Raw 2009-2011, explained that he has been hearing rumors about its possible cancellation since December:
“I have heard from reliable sources, and I truly believe, that WWE 2K21 has been canceled. There will be no game this year. 2K is publishing a different kind of WWE game from a different kind of game developer that’s not Visual Concepts,” declared Leaper.
In that sense, the ComicBook website also reached out to a 2K Spokesperson to which the representative declared “We do not comment on rumors or speculation.” So, it could be possible the wrestling game is indeed canceled for 2021.
Referring to “a different WWE game,” Leeper suggests that 2K will be releasing a separate WWE game later this year, but he doesn’t want to share more details at the moment. And finally, Leeper also said that when WWE 2K22 goes on sale, it will not be available for PS5 or Xbox Series X, but focused on current ones.
