2K Games is yet to unveil the latest entry in its annual WWE franchise, but Hall of Famers Kurt Winkel may have inadvertently given fans a glimpse of what to expect when it eventually releases.
On his official Instagram account, Angle posted a stack of photos of himself with the caption, “First time signing 10,000 autographs at once. Wonder how long this will take?” Eagle-eyed fans will notice the 2K icon in the corner of one of the photos, leading many to speculate that the Olympic gold medalist will star in it WWE2K20.
Previous Collector’s Editions of WWE 2K games typically featured a former WWE Superstar. WWE 2K16 had “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, 2K17 had the NXT Collector’s Edition, 2K18 featured John Cena and last year was all about the “Nature Boy”, Ric Flair.
Last years WWE2K19 Collector’s Edition with flair was limited to just 30,000 copies worldwide. Perhaps 2K Games will limit this year’s Collector’s Edition to just 10,000 and include a signed photo of Kurt Angle.
Having Angle as the focal point of this year’s Collector’s Edition, or even Showcase mode, makes sense considering the Hall of Famer officially retired from in-ring competition at WrestleMania 35 in April. He lost to Baron Corbin.
Fans could relive Angle’s greatest WWE moments in this year’s WWE 2K20, where he makes his debut before winning the World Championship in his first year with the company. Take on a young Brock Lesnar and debutant John Cena, then relive Angle’s illustrious career.
It’s unclear what 2K Games has planned WWE2K20, but with E3 2019 taking place in June, fans can expect some news on this year’s episode. The cover reveal for WWE 2K19 – starring AJ Styles – didn’t happen until mid-June. The woo! The edition of WWE 2K19 was only revealed at the end of July, the game itself will be released in October, so there is still time to expect any news.
