Today, 2K announced the much-anticipated WWE® 2K24, the latest installment in the flagship WWE video game franchise. Developed by Visual Concepts, the game is set to release on PlayStation® 5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. The announcement brought a surprise revelation as “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes graces the cover of the Standard Edition, while multi-time champions Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley share the Deluxe Edition cover—a historic first for two women on a dedicated WWE 2K cover. The Forty Years of WrestleMania Edition features original artwork celebrating iconic Superstars and Legends like The Rock, The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
“I’ve been known to keep a checklist of key milestones I want to experience on the path to finishing my story,” said Cody Rhodes. “As an avid gamer, being named WWE 2K cover Superstar is very, very close to the top of that list and I’m very happy to work with the teams at 2K and Visual Concepts to bring that dream to life.”
“This is an incredible milestone in my career and I’m so excited to show the world why WWE 2K24 is a must-have and the EST game for every WWE fan and gamer,” said Bianca Belair.
“I’ve proven myself to be the most dominant competitor to ever hold the WWE Women’s World Championship,” said Rhea Ripley, “Earning the accolade of WWE 2K24 cover Superstar is only fitting, and I’m proud to add it to my list of accomplishments.”
“Fresh off the highest-rated game in franchise history, the WWE 2K development team continues to build on that quality,” said Greg Thomas, President at Visual Concepts. “WWE 2K24 offers more match types, new MyRISE storylines and characters, improvements to gameplay throughout, a 2K Showcase 40 years in the making, and so much more. I’m very proud of the work the team has done to bring this experience to life, and I look forward to seeing players enjoy the game.”
