WWE Confirm New Wrestling RPG Game

WWE has revealed that they have signed a deal for a role-playing game that will be announced soon.

Wrestling barged back onto consoles this year with WWE 2K22 after the series undertook a full overhaul.

According to the company's chief brand manager, Stephanie McMahon, there will be a big presence from the WWE in the gaming space.

"We continue to see strength in the performance of our mobile games with 2K and Scopely, SuperCard and Champions," McMahon said in a recent WWE financial call, according to Eurogamer.

"(WWE) recently signed a new deal in the role-playing game space that will be announced soon. We also continue to evaluate the metaverse, both walled garden environments that already exist as well as decentralised properties, look to hear more in the coming months."

Regarding the relaunch of WWE 2k, she added, "After taking a little more than a year off to improve the game engine, we worked hand in glove with our partners that take to interactive, listen to our customers and fans and earned back their trust by delivering a game that exceeded their expectations.

"WWE 2K22 was a commercial and critical success with the highest Metacritic scores on both Xbox and PlayStation platforms in franchise history with over 5.6m hours viewed on Twitch to date.

"Gaming is a priority for WWE to reach our next-gen audience with over 80 percent of WWE's audience self-identifying as gamers."
