New WWE 2K20 Patch Address Crashes And Community Concerns

WWE 2K20's update also targets "general stability and polish improvements."

2 Comments

WWE 2K20 has received a new update on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One targeting several "significant community reported concerns," publisher 2K Sports said in a blog post. The patch takes aim at addressing crashes, improving stability, adjusting sweat, fixing missing hair and cloth, and more.

In addition to addressing community concerns, 2K Sports said the latest WWE 2K20 patch zeroes-in on "general stability and polish improvements." These include correcting missing and/or invisible images, refining strike aiming and dash attacks, fixing issues surrounding six-man matches, addressing crashes when simulating Wrestlemania, and more.

Since its October 22 worldwide launch, WWE 2K20 has been marred by technical issues, from glitching hair to awkward animations to bugged models. The game received a patch earlier this month targeting its numerous issues in order to bring it to a more playable state. The president of Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of 2K Sports, said he was "disappointed" in WWE 2K20's launch but ensured that the team is committed to "improving the quality of the game."

In our WWE 2K20 review, we said, "WWE 2K's annual release schedule has felt superfluous for a number of years now. This has never been more apparent than with WWE 2K20, a game that's not only riddled with frequent technical issues, but one that's notably worse than its predecessor in almost every area--whether it's the dull and unenjoyable combat, the fact half the roster look like terrifying goblin facsimiles of themselves, or MyCareer's obnoxious and tedious story. This is the moment the WWE 2K series hit Rock Bottom."
