WWE 2K24 is a testament to the development team’s world champion-level commitment to excellence,” said Greg Thomas, President at Visual Concepts. “Topping our best efforts each year has become a challenge we look forward to, and we’re especially proud of what we’ve achieved in our improvements to gameplay and overall quality.”

WWE 2K24 boasts an array of new features and improvements on existing fan-favorites:

  • 2K Showcase… Of The Immortals: For 40 years, WrestleMania set the scene for unforgettable moments - from Hulk Hogan going toe to toe with The Rock in a contest of “Icon vs Icon,” to “Stone Cold” Steve Austin refusing to tap out to Bret Hart’s Sharpshooter, to “Mr. WrestleMania” Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon innovating the ladder match, and many more. 40 years in the making, the WWE 2K24 Showcase…of the Immortals puts players in control, playing through the most iconic moments in WrestleMania history as 2K’s distinctive Slingshot Tech seamlessly morphs gameplay to live-action footage and back again for the most immersive WrestleMania video game experience to date. A host of unlockable content adds challenge and replay value to this historical experience. Check out the trailer here;
  • Iconic Roster: WWE 2K24 boasts a star-studded roster of 200+, featuring WWE Legends including “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, the Rock, Undertaker, Ultimate Warrior, and Andre the Giant, alongside current WWE Superstars including “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes, Bianca Belair, John Cena, Rhea Ripley, and Roman Reigns, whose larger-than-life entrances and signature moves are heightened by ultra-realistic graphics.
