With the release of WWE 2K20 this past week, both critics and players alike noticed the game was filled with glitches. While some of these glitches are hilarious, it's extremely frustrating for players expecting a finished, polished game. 2K Games has addressed the problems, and a patch is coming.
In a tweet from the official WWE Games account, 2K said, "We are listening closely to the feedback that's been shared regarding WWE 2K20 and are aware of the concerns some players are reporting. We're working hard to investigate these concerns and address them as necessary. We expect to have an initial patch ready in the next two weeks, with others to follow. Stay tuned to WWEGames social media channels for more information."
This response comes three days after the initial release of the annual game, and on launch day, #FixWWE2K20 was trending on Twitter, as players uploaded screenshots and videos of the glitches within the game.
Aside from things like characters' hair wildly flying around the screen, Becky Lynch's face disappearing, and characters getting tangled up in the ropes, other issues players have come across include certain menus never getting past the loading screen--like for create-an-entrance--or the game crashing. Additionally, character models don't look as good as they did in previous incarnations of this series.
While this is Visual Concept's first year working on the game solo--as Yukes wasn't involved--the studio had to recode much of the actual game, and it's pretty clear it wasn't polished before launch. This was also a problem GameSpot noticed during a press trip for WWE 2K20 a few weeks ago, as there were response issues with the gameplay.
Additionally, the most fun part of the game, WWE Originals mode, wasn't available at launch and won't arrive until October 28. Hopefully, the patch coming within the next two weeks can fix a majority of the problems, as many consider the game, as is, to be unplayable.
WWE 2K20 is available now on Xbox One, PC, and PS4.
