Here’s The WWE 2K Battlegrounds Release Date

July 9, 2020

2K has today revealed the WWE 2K Battlegrounds release date. The game, a sidestep from the yearly WWE 2K games, will launch on September 18th across all major platforms and is now available for digital pre-order.

Developers Saber Interactive are excited to take the WWE 2K franchise in a new direction this year, in a style we’ve seen with games like NBA 2K Playgrounds and last year’s FIFA Volta. Sometimes fans prefer to kick back and have some fun with their idols and heroes instead of sticking to a strict realistic format.

Eight unique battlegrounds environments will be available for fans which will feature various structures and vehicles to cause maximum damage from including cars, helicopters, and even an alligator.

We know WWE fans and gamers enjoy a wide variety of experiences, and with WWE 2K Battlegrounds, we’re presenting a whole new dimension through arcade-style gameplay that’s completely different than our WWE 2K simulation franchise,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing for 2K. “We look forward to seeing everyone tear it up with friends and family in the Battlegrounds.
