Report: WWE 2K21 Release Cancelled

Report: WWE 2K21 Release Cancelled

Former WWE game writer Justin Leeper has taken to Twitter to announce that plans for a WWE 2K21 game have been scrapped in favour of a “different kind” of game, which will likely be a mobile app.

This news comes after WWE 2K20 was awarded various “worst game of the year” award, and was even awarded sixth worst game of the decade by Metacritic.

Speaking in a YouTube video, Leeper said:

“I’m not a fan of bringing “bad news,” but it’s post-WrestleMania & I think fans deserve to know: I’ve heard on good authority that WWE 2K21 has been cancelled. However, another WWE branded game will enter the ring this year.

“Traditionally, WrestleMania brought with it a trailer or an announcement or some news about the upcoming WWE game – that did not happen this year. Why is that? Because I have heard from reliable sources, and I truly believe there will be no WWE2K21 game this year.”

Following the WWE 2K20 backlash, it is perhaps unsurprising that no follow up game will be released for the time being. We will of course bring any updates regarding this “different game” when information is available.
