WWE 2K20's Many Glitches Are Hilarious, Scary, And Awful
And that's the bottom line.
WWE 2K20 released this week on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but the internet is already filled to the brim with videos showing off the various glitches and hilarious oddities affecting 2K's latest pro wrestling game. Unlike recent entries, this was developed without the assistance of Yuke's, and the end result has been a whole lot of bugs.
Twitter user MrMacho419 might have captured the best of the lot so far with this farcical match between NXT's Dakota Kai and superstar Ronda Rousey. The disappearing ladder isn't ideal but is mostly fine, but then things take a turn for the worse when the steel steps sink into the ring, Rousey becomes entangled in ropes that aren't meant to move like that, and Kai's knees bend and move in a way that belongs in an exorcism movie.
But that's hardly the only instance of things going awry. Here's a clip from a NewLegacyInc Twitch stream, which is legitimately terrifying:
Or how about some out-of-control hair or gravity-defying moves, as encountered by Giant Bomb's Dan Ryckert:

Glitches like this have existed in each of 2K's WWE games, especially when weapons are involved, but the frequency with which they happen in WWE 2K20 is bordering on the absurd. I'm playing the game for the purposes of writing GameSpot's review and have encountered various glitches in every single match I've played so far. I've seen character's teleport across the ring, witnessed foreign objects gain sentience, and encountered one game-breaking glitch that caused both superstars to stop moving for 10 minutes until I gave up and restarted the match.
The hashtag #FixWWE2K20 has been trending on Twitter throughout the day, and a user on Reddit has even compiled a list of every glitch discovered so far. It's a bit of a mess.
