- WWE 2K24 is presumed to be in development since it is an annualized series, though nothing has been confirmed as of this writing.
- Fans have questions about what WWE 2K24 will include, such as the cover star, improvements to game modes, and new match types.
- Based on the releases of WWE 2K22 and WWE 2K23, it is likely that WWE 2K24 will be released on a Friday in March, with March 15 being the most probable date. However, these predictions are not confirmed.
With WWE 2K23 all but officially done and dusted, many fans are eager to learn what’s next for the franchise in WWE 2K24. The upcoming title is presumed to be in development, though it should be noted that neither publisher 2K nor developer Visual Concepts has confirmed that as of this writing. But it’s a safe bet regardless due to the annualization of the series, as well as the continued success of WWE, its talent, and recent PLEs.
Now, there are a lot of questions as to what WWE 2K24 will contain. Who the cover star will be, how it will improve on MyGM and MyRise modes, how it will expand the other modes, and if it’ll include any new special match types like WWE 2K23‘s WarGames are all big questions that will be answered, likely, in the handful of months prior to release. One of the biggest questions though is when WWE 2K24 will come out, and luckily, that might be pretty easy to narrow down.
WWE 2K24: A March 2024 Date is a Good Bet
After the launch of WWE 2K20, the franchise took a short hiatus, skipping a year. It came back strong with WWE 2K22 and even stronger with WWE 2K23, and so the expectation is that the developer will keep up this pace, expand on the core mechanics, matches, and other items of the game, and either retain or enhance the quality. Luckily, a lot of this serves as foundations for the next game, and WarGames for example may open it up to make other match types easier to implement thanks to its core changes. So, the pace and release pattern set by WWE 2K22 and WWE 2K23 is likely to remain the same for WWE 2K24.
This narrows down any prediction because the two games did not release wildly apart: WWE 2K22 released on the second Friday of March 2022, and WWE 2K23 released on the third Friday of March 2023. In other words, it’s likely that a Friday in March will serve as the release date, but one key difference is that March 2024 has five Fridays whereas the past two had four. Assuming the first and last Friday are off the table, then the most likely release dates for WWE 2K24 are…
- March 8
- March 15
- March 22
Beyond those is a little more guesswork, but since WWE 2K22 was March 11 and WWE 2K23 was March 17, March 15 does seem to be the likeliest of the bunch, just to fit in best with the crowd.
What should be noted, of course, is that these are predictions based on past patterns, and especially in the gaming industry, anything can change. After all, as the saying goes, two is a coincidence and three is a pattern. If WWE 2K24 releases in March, then that further cements the pattern, and fans can probably expect annual March releases from there on. Releasing between the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania does seem like a smart play too, but nothing can be certain for now. Fans will just have to wait and see where the franchise goes next.
