The video game industry always anticipates the WWE games each year to see who graces the cover. WWE has officially announced that Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Roman Reigns will be featured on the cover of WWE 2K20. Earlier this year, Becky Lynch, became the first women to main event WrestleMania with Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair. She now becomes the first woman to be featured on the cover of the WWE 2K series.
“My career has been about breaking barriers and doing what nobody else has done before,” Lynch said in the press release. “Being the first female Superstar on the cover of a WWE 2K video game is no exception.”
According to the press release, WWE has revealed an October 22nd release date. Although, this is a move showing WWE in 2020 empowering women, there are some who are upset the actual WWE Champion, Kofi Kingston, who happens to be an African-American was excluded from the cover.
WWE 2K20 will include a number of firsts, including the “2K Showcase: The Women’s Evolution,” which will follow the careers of the Four Horsewomen – Becky Lynch, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks.
The game will also include the option to compete as both male and female superstars in MyCareer mode and Mixed Tag Matches, while “WWE Towers” returns with a story-driven Tower centered around the career of Roman Reigns.
