Could we see the return of SmackDown vs. Raw games in 2021?
Before you get to excited this isn’t a rumor or anything! But hear me out. As you know SEVERAL fans are frustrated with the WWE 2K series, especially 2K20.
“WWE 2K20 SUCKS”
But rumors are indeed circulating that WWE is cancelling their relationship with the 2K series, I’ve seen that several times the past week or so. Especially due to the major failure that was 2K20. According to video games chronicle …
“WWE 2K20 is unplayable in 2020 due to a crash error. VGC’s WWE 2K20 review said the game is “hamstrung by huge technical issues.” 2K has since released a series of WWE 2K20 patches designed to address the numerous bugs the game launched with.”
Now any Wrestling fan that is also a gamer knows that there is no series quite like SvR! Many fans Champion 2011 the best version. Others favor 2006, 2007 & 2008. One thing most agree on is 2009/2010 were the worst of the series.
You can go to YouTube and follow “WrestlinGifs” for some videos like the one above. He revisited a lot of our favorite games such as SvR 2006, 2007, 2011 and more! Awesome Wrestling channel, check him out!
Now as someone who went out and bought a PS3 last summer just so I could play the wrestling games I grew up loving, I myself can hope that the rumors are true, and WWE does indeed cut ties with 2K. I have tried a couple 2K games, I have 2K15 and 2K17 and I strongly dislike them. They’re not fun to me. They don’t have fun & long story modes like they used too, and the controls are a pain in the ass. I would love to see THQ or Yukes or basically anyone but 2K make new Wrestling games!
So I guess we see what unfolds. After WWE just released more than 40 employees on Wednesday due to pay cuts with the coronavirus, they are obviously not where they are comfortable financially. What better way to rake in the big bucks by making and selling a AWESOME video game. I don’t know about you, but I think the return of the Smackdown vs. Raw series screams money!
What was your favorite Wrestling game of all time?
