The wrestling community continues to anticipate the release of WWE 2K24, expected to hit the shelves just weeks ahead of WrestleMania 40 in March 2024. With WWE's new Q1 release schedule, fans are eager for details about the next installment in the franchise.
According to reports from Better Wrestling Experience, WWE and 2K Games may dedicate WWE 2K24 to the illustrious career of the late Bray Wyatt, who tragically passed away at age 36 two months ago. The loss stunned the wrestling world, and his presence in the industry is sorely missed.
Although Better Wrestling Experience hasn't elaborated on how WWE 2K24 will honor Wyatt, speculation is rife. One possibility is featuring Bray Wyatt on the game's cover art, a move that would serve as a poignant tribute to the late superstar.
Given that the dedication is intended to highlight his career, it seems likely that the game's Showcase mode may allow players to relive the pivotal moments of Wyatt's time in the ring. For the uninitiated, WWE 2K's Showcase mode traditionally zeroes in on a significant aspect or character from wrestling history.
Past versions have paid homage to iconic figures like John Cena, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Rey Mysterio. This year, for example, the mode delved into the career-defining losses of John Cena. If Bray Wyatt's career becomes the focal point of WWE 2K24's Showcase, fans may get to experience his WWE Championship win in the Elimination Chamber, his unforgettable Firefly Funhouse match against John Cena, and some of the memorable clashes between the Wyatt Family and The Shield.
Honoring Bray Wyatt's Legacy
Bray Wyatt's unexpected death was a major blow to both the wrestling industry and its fan base. Triple H announced the news, shocking everyone, as Wyatt had returned to WWE less than a year before his death.
He had been missing from the ring for about six months, reportedly dealing with heart issues aggravated by COVID-19. As we continue to send our deepest condolences to his family, including his fiancée Jojo Offerman and their children, dedicating WWE 2K24 to Bray Wyatt's legacy seems a fitting way to celebrate his contributions to the sport.
