As is the custody addition, 2K Games has announced WWE 2K24 and this year it’s all about celebrating the grandest stage of them all, WrestleMania.

What’s more, this year’s release will have multiple stars featured on the illustrious cover. For the standard edition, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes will feature. On the Deluxe Edition, we have the “Eradicator” Rhea Ripley and the “EST of WWE” Bianca Belair. Finally, for the most prestigious edition, the box art is a celebration of four decades of WrestleMania, featuring “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Charlotte Flair and more.

Fans of the series will be pleased to know the popular modes MyGM, MyFACTION, MyRISEm and Universe mode. And of course, we can expect the showcase mode which will celebrate the most iconic moments in WrestleMania history in the ‘2K Showcase…of the Immortals’.
