Recently, rumours about the WWE 2K21 game getting cancelled started going around on the internet. It is now revealed that the game has been cancelled officially. It is being reported that the predecessor WWE 2K20 did not perform adequately financially and was also panned by long-time fans which is why WWE 2K21 has been now called off.
WWE 2K20 released back in October 2019 and was reportedly filled with a number of bugs, mechanical problems and glitches which resulted in poor overall performance at sales. The poor fan reception did not help the 2K20 game either and was ultimately named as one of the worst video game titles of 2020. It was concluded that the WWE 2K20 was rushed for a release which resulted in a poor game.
