WWE 2K20 Launched Today and It's a Buggy Mess

By Sean Carey,
The launch for WWE 2K20 hasn't gone so well for 2K Games. Angry players are reporting numerous issues, ranging from strange graphical glitches to game-breaking bugs. The internet is currently ablaze with hashtags and forum posts demanding the game to be fixed. #FixWWE2K20 is trending on Twitter — similar to the #FixNBA2K20 hashtag that was doing the rounds last month when NBA 2K20 released.

Angry players are posting images and videos of the bizarre glitches and bugs they've found:






A Reddit post by DazedRabbit details a vast number of problems players have encountered day one. Issues such as online games beginning with a minute of lag, multiple versions of the same wrestler showing up, the game crashing when uploading custom logos, numerous graphical issues and players getting stuck matches with no way to progress. These are just a few of a long list; you can check that list out here.

User reviews are beginning to appear on Metacritic with the majority overwhelmingly negative. It's likely that most of these issues will be patched when the day one patch comes along. However, players are still waiting for that patch, and social media for the game remains silent on the issue.

    Man, that first video was an unexpected twist laugh. Opened Twitter today and there is indeed a lot of complaints.

    I'm not sure that most people are particularly surprised. It's just hilarious, and mind-boggling how it keeps happening.

    I can’t stand the main menu, it gives me a headache with the side video that plays.

    This why WWE games should bring new games every two years. And a roster update in between. So it mostly bug free.

    I'm willing to bet at least one achievement in this game will be flagged as unobtainable.
