Many entries within the WWE 2K series 2K22 MT have included an option for campaign play, where players can personalize their own wrestlers as they navigate the challenges and trials that face the rising stars of the sport. These career options, admittedly offer a few RPG elements, such as character creation, dialog options, and critical making (though the significance of these decisions can be debated).
Through these career choices which may differ between games, players get to enjoy the thrill of beginning as a beginner and then achieving their goals and enjoying a lot similar gameplay to other game modes. However they don't get the same level of post-launch support through WWE 2K DLC.
The career path is expanding, as per statements provided by the WWE's Stephanie McMahon in a recent earnings call. According to GameSpot, McMahon revealed that the majority of WWE fans consider themselves "gamers," noting that this should be capitalized upon through further investment in game development.
In a discussion about the popularity of Buy NBA 2K22 MT WWE's mobile games McMahon said that the company is expected to announce a brand novel role-playing experience "soon." It's unclear at the moment what similarities this new role-playing game will have to the WWE 2K games, if it has any kind of resemblance at all.
