WWE 2K23 has big shoes to fill following the revival of the struggling franchise, but fans still have some time to wait.
We've got details on when WWE 2K23 is expected to come out and why things could still be several months away.
When does WWE 2K23 come out?
While most annual sports titles like Madden 23 or NBA 2K23 have a reliable release structure, things got thrown out of sync with the WWE 2K franchise.
WWE 2K20 stuck to the traditional autumn release window that WWE Games has used for years by being released on October 22, 2019.
However, the cancellation of WWE 2K21 and postponement of WWE 2K22 may have forever changed their plans.
WWE 2K22 was released on March 11, 2022 just before WrestleMania 38, and that timing may be too enticing for WWE and 2K to pass up.
With these two potential windows in mind, we expect WWE 2K23 to come out on Friday, October 21, 2022 or Friday, March 10, 2023.
The exact date will depend on whether 2K wants to push hard and get WWE 2K23 out quickly to re-establish the old timeline or if they'll simply take the extra time and stick to a March launch in coming years.
Will there be any more WWE 2K22 content released?
If you're still enjoying WWE 2K22, things are now definitely winding down as the final DLC pack was released.
WWE 2K22 added several wrestlers to the roster with DLC packs after launch, and it continued to grow one of the largest rosters their franchise has ever seen.
While there may be drops for MyFACTION, we don't expect any additional DLC or major updates with new features at this point.
Instead, 2K has likely already shifted the majority of their focus to development and preparation for WWE 2K23.
Whether they go with the October or March launch windows, both cases have the clock ticking, and they surely know there's pressure to follow-up WWE 2K22 in the right way.
