WWE will release WWE 2K23 on Tuesday. The company hopes that the game will continue the franchise’s strong comeback, which began with last year’s edition. That game, which was called WWE 2K22, fixed a lot of the problems that were going to kill the series in 2020. It made gameplay better in every way and gave players a new take on what had become boring.
This year’s release will build upon the solid groundwork laid by its predecessor by adding new features to the game’s existing modes and supplying players with a massive roster of both new and returning favorites.

The MyGM Setting
Not only could players schedule matches in 2K22’s MyGM mode, but they were also responsible for managing the whole WWE brand. The players had to balance production costs, the egos of their superstars, and the demands of their opponents’ general managers as they formed a squad, scheduled matches, and forged rivalries.
The previous year’s format had several restrictions, like as only letting you book unique gimmick matches for your performances. This will no longer be the case in 2K23 as announced on Austin Xavier Woods Creed’s Up Up Down Down, with the following match types being added:
- All Three Are Dangerous
- Deadly 4-Way
- Confinement in a Steel Cage
- The Location of a Fall Is Irrelevant
- Steel Man
- In other words, he’s the lone survivor.
- Identify the Tornado Game
The new game extends on last year’s offering by adding Woods and Tyler Bate as general managers, along with Hall of Famers Eric Bischoff and Mick Foley. Previous GMs included Adam Pearce, Sonya Deville, Shane McMahon, and Stephanie McMahon.
New seasonal challenges and Slammy Awards are part of an effort to turn a mode that fans enjoyed but felt required expansion into a must-play staple.
There are only so many times you can play one of four or five matches before things get old, and that’s before you even get to a pay-per-view offering and have to rerun some of the same matches across the card, making the addition of the match types a huge step forward.
We won’t know until Tuesday if the adjustments were successful, but the fact that they were made reflects the creators’ commitment to improving the game and their confidence in the mode’s potential to become a staple of the WWE series.
Customized Franchise and Career Paths (MyFranchise and MyRise)
WWE fans, like those of other 2K sports franchises, may collect Superstar cards and level them up to create their ideal team of wrestlers. One of the new features of online multiplayer this year is the ability to raise the level of a base Roman Reigns card to gold or higher while also increasing one’s star collection.
Players are enticed to open their initial pack of cards and progress toward sapphire, platinum, and diamond editions by the availability of alternate clothing and one-of-a-kind live events. Following the initial release, a new Pink Diamond level will be launched, providing players with an even stronger card upon which to build their brand.
There’s a good chance that the card-collecting modes, which have been a staple of the 2K series, will be as popular here as they are everywhere else. The idea of letting players work toward forming their own group was a brilliant approach to leverage the intrinsic enjoyment that comes from amassing and expanding one’s rewards in a game.
Players will learn whether or if the multiplayer features are an improvement over last year’s launch product on Tuesday. In the MyRise mode, players can actively take part in one of two different narratives.
According to WWE games fansite The SmackDown Hotel, in the men’s plot you are introduced as the next big thing and in the women’s storyline you are a second-generation competitor trying to live up to the legacy of your legendary aunt.
The play was entertaining because it allowed the audience to watch the protagonist develop a career from the very beginning to the very end of the story. It will be interesting to see how the plots have progressed, if at all, and how much the create-a-wrestler studio has altered in a year.
A Comprehensive List
In WWE 2K23, 2K continues its tradition of including a large number of wrestlers in the game, including current and former Superstars as well as popular icons from days gone by and the always divisive Madden-style ratings that accompany them. Roman Reigns is at the peak of the mountain with a near-perfect 99 ranking, while Cody Rhodes, his opponent at WrestleMania, has a more moderate 91.
Developers have announced post-launch content packs featuring current competitors like The OC’s Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, Hit Row’s Top Dolla, Ashante Thee Adonis and manager B-Fab, and most importantly, Bray Wyatt. International music star and occasional WWE Superstar Bad Bunny is available as downloadable content for players preordering this year’s edition of the game.
WWE 2K23 MyRISE features 2 distinct storylines:
– The Lock (Men's story): You're a prominent debuting superstar seen as the "next big thing".
– The Legacy (Women's story): You're a 2nd-gen talent following the footsteps of your HOF aunt.

With the addition of WWE legends like the Steiner Brothers, Zeus, Eve Torres, and Harley Race, as well as NXT stars like Pretty Deadly, Tiffany Stratton, Wendy Choo, and Tony D’Angelo, the game boasts yet another massive roster that satisfies the appetites of players seeking to exert control over wrestlers from a wide range of WWE eras.
It will be fascinating to see if, like the game’s relaunch a year ago, the makers can give fans plenty to do with the men and women it has built into the game. If 2K and WWE are able to keep improving the new modes, the fans who are clamoring for a new excellent pro wrestling video game may finally be satisfied.
