After the disastrous WWE 2K20 launch, WWE 2K21 won’t be happening this year, but we’ll see the introduction of the brand new WWE 2K Battlegrounds in autumn.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is less of a wrestling simulation game and more of an over the top arcade like experience. The visuals are also more cartoon-like and the wrestlers have been shrunken down.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is developed by Saber Interactive, the development team responsible for the likes of World War Z, NBA 2K Playgrounds, and helped with porting The Witcher 3 to the Switch. There’s an over the top teaser trailer of the game at the bottom of this story.

As for the future of the WWE 2K simulation series, 2K Games have assured that this isn’t the end. The series will return at some point, and development will be headed by game industry veteran, Patrick Gilmore.
