Four games in the WWE 2K series have been delisted without warning, it’s been discovered.
Another user posted changelog details from the Steam Tracker website which showed that WWE 2K17, 2K18, 2K19 and 2K20 all had their status changed to “purchase disabled” on July 13.
It’s still possible to redownload the delisted games and their DLC if they were previously purchased, but players can no longer buy the digital versions of each game or their DLC.
The only way players can now play these games is with physical Xbox or PlayStation discs, though DLC will still be unavailable for purchase.
“On June 30, 2022, we will sunset support for WWE 2K19 the WWE 2K20 servers,” 2K tweeted. “This includes all online functions, such as online matches & Community Creations. We are turning our full focus toward supporting WWE 2K22. Thanks for your continued support!”
This announcement did not, however, make any reference to actually removing the games from digital storefronts.
VGC’s WWE 2K22 review called the game “the comeback fans have been praying for”, especially following the disastrous release of WWE 2K20, which was so critically panned that 2K decided to ditch WWE 2K21 and spend more time fixing what had gone wrong.
