John Cena WWE 2K23

WWE has gone back to the future for WWE 2K23 with the sixteen-time champion of the world John Cena gracing the cover of the video game.

John Cena returned to WWE for the final SmackDown of 2022 when he teamed with Kevin Owens to defeat The Bloodline duo of Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn. This kept alive Cena’s streak of competing in at least one match in a calendar year since he made his debut for the company in 2002.

Bigger things could be yet to come for Cena in 2023 with a rumoured match said to be all but set in stone at WrestleMania 39.

Now WWE has revealed that the sixteen-time champion of the world will grace the cover of WWE 2K23 which is already available for pre-order now.

The company has touted that the 30th anniversary edition of Monday Night Raw will see the world premiere of the “Even Stronger” Showcase trailer, including more information and a look at WWE 2K23 gameplay.

WWE 2K23 will feature John Cena in the showcase mode with publicity for the game touting that “players will step into the boots of several of Cena’s toughest competitors with one goal in mind: defeat the man who will “Never Give Up.” Spanning his 20-year WWE career and narrated by Cena himself, this interactive sports entertainment documentary uses 2K’s unique Slingshot Tech for a seamless transition from gameplay to live-action footage to bring pivotal moments in each match to life.”

The game will be released across all platforms in March with three-day early access beginning on March 14th 2023.
