Every year a new roster and gameplay upgrades push the WWE 2K franchise forward, and the WWE 2K24 release date will mark the next chapter in this storied series. After a bit of a hiccup a few years back, the franchise has been going strong and we should see continued upgrades to MyGM, MyFACTION, and MyRISE in the next arrival.
We've already got confirmation about when the WWE 2K24 release date is expected, and more reveals will continue to arrive in coming weeks. Here's everything we know so far and all the latest news about when more WWE 2K24 details could be released.
When does WWE 2K24 come out?
As of now, the expected WWE 2K24 release date will be March 2024. An exact date in that month has not yet been revealed, but several key signs from past releases and new confirmation from 2K does signal that window.
This will put the WWE 2K24 release date right before WrestleMania 40 comes to Philadelphia on April 6 and 7. That's sure to be one of the biggest events in WWE history, and we'll likely see the WWE 2K24 release tied into some aspects even if just to advertise the game.
There's a very slight chance it could land late in February 2024, specifically because WWE is hosting Elimination Chamber: Perth in Western Australia. Worldwide releases can sometimes become available in Australia and New Zealand earliest due to time zones, and aligning the WWE 2K24 launch to that event could be something 2K might try out.
WWE 2K24 Release Date Window & Prediction
The WWE 2K24 release date window has now been confirmed thanks to the latest quarterly earnings report from Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of 2K Sports which publishes the WWE 2K franchise. Their official documents list the WWE 2K24 release date as "Fiscal 2024".
Take-Two Interactive actually ends their Fiscal Year on March 31, 2024, so that means that WWE 2K24 is currently scheduled to be released by that date at the very latest. If we look back at recent years, WWE 2K22 dropped on Friday, March 11, 2022 and WWE 2K23 arrived on Friday, March 17, 2023.
With all of this in mind, we predict the WWE 2K24 release date will be Friday, March 16, 2024. This would put the game out a full three weeks ahead of WrestleMania 40, allowing them to build anticipation for the game before and during that event.
When will the WWE 2K24 cover star be announced?
All major details about the next release like the WWE 2K24 cover star, official confirmation on platforms, pricing, editions, and the exact release date are expected to arrive late in January 2024. Following the shift away from a fall release window, 2K have generally chosen to time their reveals close to the Royal Rumble each year.
With the WWE Royal Rumble scheduled for Saturday, January 27, 2024, we predict the reveals will begin on Monday, January 22, 2024. We've seen 2K use early week reveals in the past for major games, and this would allow them to build anticipation on Monday Night Raw leading into an additional trailer reveal of some kind during the Royal Rumble event.
Will WWE 2K24 have Early Access?
While not confirmed by 2K just yet, we do expect that WWE 2K24 Early Access will be available. Both of the most recent releases included a 3-Day Early Access reward with their deluxe editions to allow players to jump in just before the worldwide launch for the standard edition.
Exact details on editions and whether Early Access will return should be revealed in January 2024 as well, though it could land a few days after the initial cover star reveal. While it can be the most enticing bonus for some players, the deluxe editions should also come with several in-game rewards and potentially some temporarily exclusive playable characters.
