WWE Games to Release Patch for Broken State of WWE 2K20

Following major backlash from fans over major issues, WWE Games announces to release patch for WWE 2K20.

Latest installment of professional wrestling video game WWE 2K20 has debuted to harsh criticism of fans over digital outlets and social media due to its annoying glitches, poor graphics and many other performance issues at launch.

Whereas it is fairly common for sports games to have some bugs to begin with, 2K20 took it to another level where it is considered a stinky mess and eventually game publisher had to come out promising a patch to resolve those issues.

Within next two weeks, developer Visual Concepts and publisher 2K Sports will roll out a patch that will resolve some major issues. However, this promise means almost nothing to day-one customers or those who pre-ordered.

2K Games simply couldn't delay WWE 2K20 for two weeks probably because of their contractual obligations but that still is no excuse to sell a full-priced game in a beta state and some has paid even more for special editions.

WWE Games have acknowledged current broken state of 2K20 and promised a patch in a latest statement on Twitter.

A significant drop of graphics quality was noticed in early preview footage after departure of longtime Japanese developer Yuke’s, who has been working on WWE game series since 2000 and Visual Concepts took over development this year.

Their work in 2K20 has met with brutal reviews for delivering a product full of bugs and in a broken state. There are so many problems with almost every feature that it would require more than a single patch to deal with them all.

People are also concerned whether publisher is willing to put that much effort to bring 2K20 in a working state since the game is part of WWE 2K annual series and 2K Games is most likely to start focusing on their next title by now.

Considering how developer Visual Concepts has already messed up twice in a year with NBA 2K20 first and WWE 2K20, it is really time for 2K to reconsider whether they should trust the studio with more of their sports titles in future.

NBA 2K20 Review-Bombed on Metacritic and Steam

Riddled with micro-transactions and other issues, NBA 2K20 is getting review-bombed on Metacritic and Steam.

Same game wrapped in new package each year, basically that's how most of the sports genre titles operate in general. These games are annually put out in stores with noting more than a few minor updates and a full-priced tag.

Aside from these common criticisms, latest release form this year's basketball simulation video game series came under fire by upset fans and NBA 2K20 starts getting review-bombed on Metacritic and Steam within weeks of launch.

This outrage from fans is largely due to aggressive micro-transactions used in the game and reports of crashes that has currently sunk its Metacritic user score to 0.5 and similarly, reviews on Steam has been overwhelmingly negative so far.

Players are highlighting methods used in NBA 2K20 as a gambling scheme for publisher and they were fed up with its long loading times. Its glitches are so weird that people started a hashtag #Fix2K20, which started trending on Twitter.

If carelessness of developers about actually adding new content to their game was not obvious enough until now, it became more evident than ever when PC version of NBA 2K20 shows you a logo of NBA 2K19 on Windows taskbar.

Whenever big-name developers and publishers do something that irks their fan-base, they often lean towards review-bombing to get their attention on particular issue since most of these companies do not listen to their customers at all.

RELATED: Days Gone New Game Plus Mode Release Date

Even though heavily panned by fans, sports-title selling companies like developer Visual Concepts and publisher 2K Games will shamelessly put out new NBA 2K installments each year that is just few roster updates and some slight changes.

Considering how sports titles are one of the most money generating machines in video game industry, developers should get back to fixing these major issues of NBA 2K20 that are angering fans on all platforms as soon as possible.
