More Bad News For WWE 2K20; Budget Cuts For Series Moving Forward

WWE 2K20 is not doing well. The game was hammered by critics following its October release and it hasn’t performed well in terms of sales.

Justin Leeper, who is known for his work on WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2011 (2010), WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2010 (2009) and Death Stranding (2019), weighed in on the criticism of the game and the future of the WWE2K series.

“2K and the people within it are trying to distance themselves from it. I’ve heard about double digit people who were on the team who have quit. They haven’t left for other stuff, they just quit because, ‘Man, I don’t want this stink on me anymore.’”

He added h/t, “2K20 is selling poorly, it’s doing poorly all around. That means the budget is going to be cut. It means 2K21 is gonna have to be made for less money. Less money to fix things, innovate, and now there are about ten less people on the team. As you can tell, the outlook is not good for 2K21 either.”
