WWE 2K22 provided to fans some new and welcome details during the SummerSlam weekend, including a new progress and a new launch window. The reception of the first was quite positive, although the reaction of the second was quite negative. The progress indicated that the launch window is scheduled for March 2022, and that places it more than 2 years since the launch of WWE 2K20. That gave rise to some concern about the change to the window of 2022, since it was expected that the game would arrive at some time this year, and we will not discover many of the details until January 2022. WWE 2K22 executive producer Patrick Gilmore, resorted to Twitter to relieve any problem. Fears or concerns about the date of launch and problems with development (through fighter).
Gilmore wrote: I heard some concerns about WWE2K22 staying silent until January. The challenge is that the creation of updates such as the trailer of #Summerslam requires the support of development, and we are trying to keep us completely focused on making yourself the best possible game .
I only assure everyone that we will continue to provide support for online services for WWE2K20 and WWE2K19 until the launch of WWE2K22 in March! Road to Glory and MyPlayer PPV Tower in WWE2K20 will end on September 26. The messages in the game are automated and may be incorrect …

As for development, Gilmore wrote: Our marketing and community teams support by 1000% our development approach. Without promises, but we are talking about ways to share more about our progress to keep them all informed, so they won. We will not have to wait until next year to get more information.
A recent rumor also circulated that said tensions were high between 2K and WWE due to low performance and problems with WWE 2K20, and that only worsened due to WWE 2K22 development time. We communicate with 2K to comment on the matter, but unfortunately they only had the official statement we do not comment on rumors and speculations.
We will have to wait and see how this is resolved, but ultimately, the delay gives time to 2k to make sure that 2k22 is working with all cylinders, and that is certainly. a good thing.
