No one is surprised that WWE 2K21 is cancelled.
That The Rock screengrab will haunt me for a while.
Looks cool to me, reminds me of a refresh of NBA Jam style graphics and hopefully plays like an old school SNES wrestling game. Arcade style fun looks awesome!
Arcade is always welcome for me
They look like midgets fighting. Why does arcade gameplay always have to have “stylized” artwork?
I think this is the right direction. They need time to fix what a mess wwe 2k has become. I think they use same engine for NBA 2k and simply doesn't work. They purchased Playgrounds to make use of that engine I guess. They should do that with NBA too.
I think that if they didn’t listen, they would still release WWE 2K21 this year and it still would be a bug ridden mess that we got from last year.
I think this author is out of touch with what the fans really want. At least I know a majority of my friends are excited as hell to play this new installment.
"While WWE 2K Battlegrounds might turn out to be a decent title, it’s been done before. This isn’t innovative or “new”, despite the WWE’s spin machine. It’s a concept that’s been exhausted in the past." There's nothing wrong with doing something that has been done in the past. Many sports games don't really reinvent the wheel every year (look at FIFA for example), and it's been a long time since we have got a fun wrestling game. Battlegrounds allows the focus to get put off of their main WWE2K franchise, let people have a little fun with Battlegrounds, and allows them to try and figure out what went wrong in 2K20, and start from scratch, or make major fixes. It's what made Assassin's Creed better when they took that break from a yearly release to figure out how to refresh themselves and their franchise.
Vince hasn't listened to anyone since he took over from his father. We didn't need to wait until 2020 to 'prove this'.
