2K Games presented a press conference which we had the chance to attend in order to learn more about WWE 2K22. Moreover, it is now official that the WWE 2K22 release date will be Friday, March 11, 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, as well as on PC.
A date to mark on your calendar. For the conference, Sam Roberts and Byron Saxton also brought us the cover of WWE 2K22 and it is Rey Mysterio who will have the honor of being on the cover of the Deluxe and Standard version this year. The legend was present with them to comment on the news.
Rey Mysterio says he’s happy to be on the cover of WWE 2K22 and it’s an honor for him to represent the Latino community. He’s been through a lot in his career, besides teaming up with his son, a great year for 2022. He hadn’t realized this chance, he was struck when he saw the final cover for the conference. A good time for him because he doesn’t know how much time he has left in the ring.
We already knew that the Showcase mode will be back this year and Rey Mysterio has revealed a little more about his story that we can embody. He says the first moment will be at WrestleMania 21 for his historic match against Eddie Guerrero. We will then have a chapter on the death of Eddie Guerrero, his rivalry against Shawn Michaels, his match against Undertaker at the Royal Rumble and more.

To end the conference, Rey Mysterio answered a few questions. We learned that his goal before hanging up his mask is to have a moment at WrestleMania with his son Dominick. In WWE 2K22, he is already looking forward to tag team matches with his son on the game. He already wants to do Garza and Carrillo matches against the Mysterios.
For the MyFaction mode, Rey Mysterio sees himself creating his party of four with Damian Priest, Carrillo and Garza and him to start a super group of Latinos. He also says he is ready to launch into the Creation mode to add his football stars with Messi or Ronaldo and play matches against them. According to him, Ronaldo would be more the type to try wrestling since he is not afraid to take on new challenges and Messi is too laid back.
Great news for WWE 2K and Rey Mysterio fans who can have a great time in March.
