    Play Henry: WWE 2K22 Reportedly Bringing Back GM Mode



    Following WWE 2K22 has been a wild ride, to say the least, as the game that promises "It Hits Different" has been delayed from its usual fall release to March 2022. This has reportedly caused some tension between WWE and 2K Games, with rumors saying that the franchise might find a new home elsewhere if WWE 2K22 doesn't sell well. 

    There’s been a lot of dread and not a lot of gameplay details, but it looks like we’re in for some good news as Michael Straw of Sports Gamers Online is reporting that the highly-requested GM Mode is making its grand return to the series in this game.

    We haven’t seen GM Mode in a WWE game since SmackDown vs Raw 2008 and its removal has been something that many wrestling fans have always questioned. For those unaware, GM Mode lets players know what it's like to be a General Manager in the kayfabe world of WWE by having them book Raw or SmackDown. This isn’t limited to booking matches either as players had to hire superstars that are best for their brand, plan rivalries, pay for injuries, and even choose who would star in a WWE Studios film. 


               

    At the time, the answer to replace GM Mode came in the form of Universe Mode, debuting in SmackDown vs Raw 2011 and appearing in every WWE game ever since. Though Universe mode has a good number of fans, most of them still want to see GM Mode return in some form.

    Unsurprisingly, GM Mode was voted as the most-wanted feature fans wanted to see in WWE 2K22 when Visual Concepts released the WWE 2K Feedback Program a while back, so it only makes sense for them to bring it back now.

    WWE 2K22 is scheduled for a March 2022 release date. For your GM Mode cravings, try out AEW’s Elite General Manager mobile game, which is available now on iOS and Android devices.
