WWE 2K23: Creative Director Discusses How AEW Fight Forever Drove Developers to Improve
We bounced back with 2K22, and you look at the reception we got, that video game was kind of like battling in a nutshell? It’s, like, the comeback story. Now we’re trying to keep our area on the top, and we have competition coming, and it’s even more important for us to keep believing beyond the box and improving each and every single year, Jinks said.
WWE 2K23 is set for release on March 17 and will look to build on the substantial improvements the WWE 2K series made with the WWE 2K22 installation last year. The choice to leave the task is frequently cited as what led to the widely-criticized WWE 2K20 back in 2019.
WWE 2K23 Creative Director Lyell Jinks talked to WCCF Tech recently about the release and how the series will have some competition this year. Jinks seemed to welcome the concept.
I like competition, he added. I started on NBA 2K, I invested 10 years on it, and at that time, we were going against NBA Inside Drive. We were going versus [NBA] Shootout and NBA Live, and every year, we would take a look at what they did and be, like, that’s interesting or they did this much better than us. That just makes our video games better. Exact same thing you can say about battling in basic– having competition, to me, it’s no coincidence that the storylines [in WWE] have been the very best they’ve been in a very long time. I believe it’s because of that competitors. It’s the exact same with video games. I’m anticipating seeing what they’re gonna do that’s going to drive us to be even more powerful.
WWE 2K23 is set for release on March 17 and will look to construct off of the substantial improvements the WWE 2K series made with the WWE 2K22 installment last year. The video game won’t be the only pro wrestling release set up for the existing generation of consoles and PC this year, as All Elite Fumbling’s first console game AEW Battle Permanently is set for release later on this year. That video game is being established by Duke’s, the same business that worked together with Visual Principles on the series up till its departure in 2018. The decision to leave the task is often mentioned as what led to the widely-criticized WWE 2K20 back in 2019.
