This morning, 2K Games revealed Becky Lynch will be one of the cover athletes for WWE 2K20.
Lynch will grace the cover of the next game alongside Roman Reigns, making her the first female superstar to appear on the front of a WWE 2K game.
This has been a huge year for the Raw Women’s Champion. In an interview with Bleacher Report, Lynch discussed how this accomplishment ranks among her other recent career highlights.
“Pretty freaking high,” she said. “It’ll be The Man and the firsts. The first to main-event WrestleMania, the first WWE Superstar on the cover of ESPN The Magazine and then the first woman on the 2K video game. It just feels like it’s been accomplishment after accomplishment, and it feels pretty freaking great.”
The Deluxe edition will also feature recent Hall of Fame inductee, Chyna, as a playable character. WWE 2K20 will be her first appearance in a WWE video game since 2000.
Even more, players will finally have the ability to play as a female Superstar in MyCareer mode. This is addition was long overdue, and it great to see that 2K Games is acknowledging that their demographic has changed. Creating more options for female gamers and wrestling fans is a huge step forward.
Lastly, this year’s 2K Showcase mode is entitled “The Women’s Evolution,” and it will focus on the collective career accomplishments of the Four Horsewomen—Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Bayley.
On sharing this honor with her fellow Horsewomen, Lynch said, “It’s pretty gratifying because we all came up at the same time, and we all have the exact same goal. We all want the same thing, and we just love this business. We wanted to work this business better for us and for all the other women out there; the ones that have come before us and the women that are gonna came after us and the women who are currently there busting their asses.”
WWE 2K20 will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on Oct. 22.
