The latest installment in the WWE 2K games series is officially released tomorrow, 11th March, with some editions providing early access from the 8th.
Ahead of the release, 2K has confirmed DLC packs including release dates. Inside these packs, we are being treated to SEVEN total female superstars to add to our roster. We previously reported here, that Stacy Keibler was confirmed to be DLC, marking her first entry since WWE Smackdown! vs Raw 2006.
Below is the list with release dates:
- Kacy Catanzaro (April 26) – Banzai Pack
- Indi Hartwell (May 17) – Most Wanted Pack
- Stacy Keibler (June 7) – Stand Back Pack
- Ronda Rousey (June 28) – Clowning Around Pack
- Doudrop (June 28) – Clowning Around Pack
- Xia Li (July 19) – The Whole Dam Pack
- Sarray (July 19) – The Whole Dam Pack
WWE 2K22 will be the first game appearances for Kacy Catanzaro, Indi Hartwell, Doudrop, Xia Li, and Sarray.
Notable missing players include one-half of the current WWE Women’s Champions Queen Zelina, SmackDown Superstar Aliyah, and NXT standouts such as Toxic Attraction, Cora Jade, Zoey Stark, and Kacy’s long time tag partner, Kayden Carter.
Legends and Hall of Famers such as The Bella Twins, Paige, Molly Holly, Alicia Fox, and Lita who were in the last 2K game. The NXT UK Women were also kept out this year with Kay Lee Ray serving as your in-game NXT UK Women’s Champion.
Even with these omissions, however, it is to be acknowledged how fans of women’s wrestling used to receive 7-8 women on disc and before DLC. Unfortunately, the women continue to get only a fraction of the DLC in compared to the men’s roster does. We do continue to have over 40 available female superstars and fans are regularly asking for more from 2K when it comes to the female stars of the WWE.
The full roster can be seen here.
