The WWE 2K game franchise is usually something that people are expecting and has a pretty good core audience. For this year’s iteration though, troubles were afoot. 4 months ago, the usual developer for the games (called Yuke) split from 2K. A new developer stepped in (called Visual Concepts). The game still got released on October 22nd…and maybe it should have not.
The game has been reported as a glitchy mess. Many stills, videos, and GIFs are populating social media since, and it is a sight to behold. #FixWWE2K20 is a tag that was created and shared a lot. There are even compilations of them that almost make it looks like there were no QA (Quality Assurance) on it. You can see an example just below.
Following this, Sony has decided to issue refunds on the game for people who are requesting it.
It has been done only a couple of times this generation. Anthem and No Man’s Sky were at one point games where the same situation happened. Now, from a programmer’s perspective (yes, I am a programmer, but not a game programmer), it looks just bad for the developers, even the franchise itself. In perspective, it makes the Assassin’s Creed Unity launch fiasco not so bad after all. What do you think? Is Sony right for allowing refunds on this game? Let me know in the comments.
