The WWE brand had a tough few years there in the video games space, but after taking a year off to sort out its many messes, the series returned re-energized this year with the launch of WWE 2K22. The revamped and improved wrestling game is doing well for itself, with fans of the series also appreciating its many improvements- but it seems there might be even more to look forward to in the future.

Apparently, a WWE RPG is currently in development. During WWE’s recent earnings call, the company’s chief brand officer, former wrestler Stephanie McMahon, said that thanks to a new deal, an RPG based on WWE is currently in the works.

“We continue to see strength in the performance of our mobile games with 2K and Scopely, SuperCard and Champions, and recently signed a new deal in the role-playing game space that will be announced soon,” she said.

Based on what McMahon says, it seems like 2K is once again the partner that WWE is working with for this game, though she does seem to imply that the RPG is being made for mobile devices. Apparently, its announcement is coming soon, which means we should know for sure one way or another not too long from now, but fans will, of course, be hoping that the game is a full-fledged RPG being made for PC and consoles.

Meanwhile, recently, indie developer Mega Cat Studio also announced a wrestling JRPG named WrestleQuest, which looks all sorts of intriguing. You can learn more about the game in our recent interview with creative director Zack Manko through here.
