WWE 2K22: Fan-Favourite GM Mode Rumoured to Make a Return, Leaks Suggest

A return to form for the series?


Despite experiencing reasonable success, the WWE 2K franchise, for the most part, has caught its fair share of flak over the past few years – with a very vocal fanbase that is not pleased with the direction of the franchise. One of the most common criticisms of the new 2K franchise that long-time fans of the WWE wrestling games have leveled is that the games have essentially taken several steps back by stripping the franchise of fan-favourite modes.

Yet, now it looks like fans of the series might want to take a gamble on the upcoming WWE 2K22 as leaks have surfaced that suggests a fantastic, fan-favourite is set to make its return. The GM Mode, which tasks players with controlling the entire show- from rosters, contracts, to booking PPVs and weekly shows and storylines, fans of the franchise are in for a treat.

GM Mode can be a game-changer for the WWE 2K franchise

If the leak is accurate, then WWE 2K22 has possibly the best chance out of the most recent 2K games to be a true fan-favourite within the wrestling game community fanbase. The GM Mode was perhaps the best part of old wrestling games as it essentially put players in control of the promotion and over every single aspect of the show.


The game is set for release in March 2022, after having been pushed back from 2021, which gives 2K time to polish certain aspects of the game to deliver on player expectations. The presence of GM Mode in the upcoming game hasn’t been confirmed by 2K yet, so much of any information currently available is to be taken with a grain of salt.

The leaks also suggest that the GM Mode will indeed be revealed around either Survivor Series or the Royal Rumble, two of the biggest PPVs in the WWE calendar.
