Over the past couple of years, the WWE 2K franchise has faced an overwhelming shift in its development. Notoriously, the games suffered greatly with bugs and other issues when releasing with WWE 2K20. This indicated the farewell for developer Yuke’s that long worked on the series for over a decade. It was later revealed the team was working on the new All Elite Wrestling title on the way.

Additionally, it was announced that Visual Concepts – the team responsible for the release of NBA 2K – is to now handle the load for WWE 2K as well. So far, the firm appeared to land its shot with WWE 2K22. From our review we wrote : “WWE 2K22 is a well-rounded and fun wrestling experience. The lack of content is felt, but excellent community tools help alleviate some of those growing pains.”

Now on Monday, 2K & Visual Concepts announced WWE is to return this year with WWE 2K23 this March with Superstar John Cena to return as the cover athlete for this year’s game. Cena will pose for the Standard Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, and Icon Edition versions for WWE 2K23.

“It is a pleasure to tell the story of my career through the WWE 2K23 Showcase. “2K has done a fantastic job capturing and invigorating the WWE 2K franchise through this concept, and I am honored to grace the cover of WWE 2K23,” Cena shared in a comment on the announcement. Cena is also said to pose as the executive soundtrack producer for WWE 2K23 as well.

“Much like our cover Superstar John Cena, the Visual Concepts team didn’t back down from the challenge to prove that the quality of the WWE 2K franchise is here to stay,” Visual Concepts president Greg Thomas writes. “WWE 2K23 takes a winning formula and adds so much more.
