There won’t be a WWE 2K21 this year, but there will be a brand new wrestling game. WWE 2K Battlegrounds is launching with a quite peculiar new look and it sort of looks like WWE All-Stars 2.
This newer sport is currently going for more of an experience according to a press release, although previous wrestling games aimed for a look. The wrestlers are all cartoony and improbably proportioned, making for a radical change in visual fashion reminiscent of 2011’s WWE All-Stars.

The teaser trailer of the game has just been around for a time and the dislikes are outpacing the likes, so it looks like a portion of the community is not particularly happy about the shift. But, WWE All-Stars was well-received by people who played it, so this might end up being another cult hit among wrestling fans.
At this point, given the negative reception to WWE 2K20, a change of pace may be exactly what the WWE games need. Check out the WWE 2K Battlegrounds trailer below. There are no details about platforms or pricing, but we should expect to learn more about that in the future.
