WWE 2K22 is finally launched on March 11, 2022, for PC and current PlayStation and Xbox consoles. After the lackluster WWE 2K20, fans are hoping that 2K22 will revamp the series and redeem the failing franchise, maybe along with adding new features like crossplay between all available gaming systems. So, does WWE 2K22 was at least launched with a crossplay or cross-platform functionality?
Speaking to Gamepur, a WWE 2K22 representative, unfortunately, has stated that the game won’t have a cross-platform play functionality. Nevertheless, you will be able to share Community Creations items across PC, Xbox, and PlayStation consoles. Players can download custom content, including CAWs (Create-a-Wrestler), belts, and other creations uploaded by users on other platforms.
“A PR representative for WWE 2K22 confirmed … that the game will not have crossplay for its online multiplayer modes. However, you can share your Community Creations across multiple platforms, adding some form of cross-platform functionality.”
To be able to activate cross-platform Community Creations, you have to link your WWE 2K22 save file with a 2K Account first. Here’s how to do it:
- In the main menu, press Triangle to login into your 2K Account.
- Create one or link your account if you haven’t done it yet.
- It is recommended to make an account then linking it through a PC browser instead of via console.
- You might not get a “verify account mail” send to your email, but the account registration still works.
- Restart your game.
- Then open the Community Creations menu.
However, the company’s previous wrestling title, the September 2020-launched WWE 2K Battlegrounds, had crossplay support between its Xbox One, PC, Stadia, and Switch releases. With that in mind, publisher 2K and developer Visual Concepts might just add the feature to WWE 2K22 through a future update. Let’s hope that is the case. For now, at least the WWE 2K22 Community Creations feature has cross-platform functionality, letting you share custom content with friends across different systems.
