2K Games is hard at work on the upcoming WWE 2K22 video game. It turns out that former WWE star Lio Rush had a hand in helping make the game as the latest mini Developer’s blog looked at their focus on motion capture.
Fans picked up on Rush doing work in the ring and he confirmed it on Twitter. He was released from WWE back last year along with several other wrestlers and employees due to budget cuts during the COVID-19 pandemic. He has since continued his wrestling career and is working for MLW.
Patrick Gilmore, who is a developer on the game, noted on social media that over 4,800 new animations have been captured for the game.
2K is using the tagline that WWE 2K22 “hits different.” Aside from a teaser trailer that aired during WrestleMania 37, there’s not much known about the game.
A release date for the game has not been given. You can watch the video here:
