WWE 2K24 Devs Reveal More Improvements Coming to the Game

WWE 2K24 is making a variety of small but important improvements that should result in a better overall product. WWE 2K24 is the third game since the developers went back to the drawing board with WWE 2K22WWE 2K23 built on what WWE 2K22 brought to the table and made some significant improvements, and now it looks like WWE 2K24 is looking to keep the franchise’s momentum going strong.

WWE 2K24 is set to feature a special 40 Years of WrestleMania Showcase Mode, a huge roster of wrestlers from past and present, and new takes on matches that have been missing from recent installments, like Ambulance Matches.

I’ve got a public service announcement for those looking forward to the new WWE game. In WWE 2K24, you’ll once again be able to lower the singlet straps of CERTAIN Superstars during a match. Emphasis on the word “Certain.” It’s a small thing, but I just wanted to share. Thanks. — Bryan Williams (@TruBWill) January 31, 2024

I’m glad ya’ll are enjoying the little QOL features that we’ve added to WWE 2K24. I’ll share another small one. The front corner leaning run attack category has expanded from 1 move slot to 3. The game now has running Light, Heavy, and Grab attacks from that situation. — Bryan Williams (@TruBWill) February 4, 2024

Some more improvements to #WWE2K24 Whip & Rebound you may have noticed: ✅ Whip from Kneeling ✅ Manual Rope Rebounds have much better controls (turn while running, easier cancel) ✅ New drop-back animation when your back is to the ropes … and there’s more if you look closely👀 https://t.co/55ZVMLvuUl — Derek Donahue (@DerkDerkDerk) February 2, 2024

In the meantime, WWE 2K24 developer Derek Donahue touched on some other improvements that fans can expect from the new game, particularly when it comes to Irish Whips and hitting the ropes. When WWE 2K24 releases in March, players can look forward to performing an Irish Whip while kneeling, better controls with manual rope rebounds, and a new back-drop animation when their back is to the ropes. These might all seem like small quality of life improvements, but they could add up to delivering a superior in-ring experience when compared to previous entries in the series.

Even though there have been some gameplay deep dives for the game, there are still some unanswered questions when it comes to WWE 2K24. One of the biggest questions is if WWE 2K24 will follow WWE SuperCard‘s example and remove Brock Lesnar from the roster. This and more should be answered come WWE 2K24‘s launch on March 8.
