WWE2K17 Won’t Feature 2K Showcase, It Wasn’t Coming Together: 2K Games

WWE 2K17

WWE2K17 is this year’s installment in the long running wrestling franchise from 2K Games. Over the years we came to enjoy a certain game mode that allowed us to exprience some great moments from WWE, the 2K Showcase.

Sadly, this year we won’t get to see 2K Showcase in the game. According to 2K Games, while they game made many improvements to WWE2K17, they just couldn’t put together a decent 2K Showcase for this year.

One of the largest and most difficult decisions we made for WWE 2K17 was to forego building a 2K Showcase. We designed and contemplated several Showcase ideas, including options surrounding our cover Superstar, Brock Lesnar, but all of them were not viable due to the many historic WWE Superstars needed but not available for inclusion in the game.

In addition, the team is heavily focused on building and delivering great content that fans can enjoy for years to come, while the Showcases only live in games from year to year. In all, we didn’t feel good about creating a Showcase that was not up to our standards and current development vision, so we decided to take that effort and put it into modes our community requests we keep improving: WWE Universe and MyCareer.

WWE2K17 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One later this year. It will also release for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The news of 2K Showcase being axed this year just came in so it remains to be seen how the community reacts.
