Are you a bad enough dude to
WWE 2K20 is a particularly infamous entry in 2K's WWE series of games. Longtime WWE game developer Yuke's was fired partway through development, with 2K bringing on Visual Concepts and giving them barely enough time to complete the game.
...Though "complete" is a bit of an exaggeration here. The end result is an obviously-rushed title with missing features compared to prior games and a ton of bugs at launch. 2K pretty much abandoned the game after March 2020 and canned the planned WWE 2K21, instead having Visual Concepts develop an entirely new engine for what would become WWE 2K22.
| Version Differences|
Five patches, about a million bugfixes, and maybe a half-dozen proper additions or refinements.
Present in the files is a model of Hulk Hogan wearing his NWO attire. The attire is not accessible in the game so it goes unused. The model is likely to be used in WWE 2K22, as it had an "NWO 4-Life" edition.
A model of "Macho Man" Randy Savage that appears to be a different version of him, sporting a completely different face.
Originally, Nikki Cross was supposed to be in WWE 2K19, but later ended up being removed from the game. Her character model is present in the files of 2K20.
Ribbie's True Identity
Removing the costume from the MyCareer mode character Ribbie reveals James Ellsworth underneath. Ellsworth was released from WWE in 2018, resulting in him not being a playable wrestler in WWE 2K19.
Unmasked Masked Wrestlers
Some of the masked wrestlers actually had their face scanned into the game.
Strangely, Kane's face scan retains the bloody red eyes. This is probably due to the fact he had to wear facepaint to hide his face to wear his mask better.
As of June 30th, 2022 the online servers for the game and WWE 2K19 have both shutdown. Meaning you cannot play online or download community creations anymore.
