We know 2K Games will not release WWE 2K21 this year after cancelling the game to re-assess the situation. However, that does not mean there won’t be a cheesy wrestling game packed with microtransactions releasing in 2020. WWE 2K Battlegrounds is this year’s wrestling game by 2K Games. The arcade-style wrestling game, developed by Saber Interactive has been inspired by NBA 2K Playgrounds.

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#E8ED06″ class=”” size=”21″]WWE 2K Battlegrounds is a completely new WWE gaming experience that will feature arcade-style action and over-the-top Superstar designs, environments and moves. We’re focusing on social pick-up-and-play fun, but with plenty of depth for those who want to get way into it.
Whether you’re a casual gamer just learning the ropes or a passionate fan ready for all the action, the game provides another way to enjoy WWE video game action. The game is being developed by Saber Interactive, the studio behind NBA 2K Playgrounds, who have been hard at work on WWE 2K Battlegrounds and are excited to let you smell what they’re cookin’.[/perfectpullquote]
Fans of the series are not happy with YouTube comments blowing up and the video receiving a load of dislikes. “Midget wrestling with microtransactions. No thanks”, “This is definitely straight-to-DVD”. These are some of the comments from fans on YouTube shaming the game’s announcement. It seems once you burn a gamer, they stay angry for a really long time. 2K Games should have thought twice about releasing a broken and buggy 2K20 last year. 2K Battlegrounds is set for release later this year for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
