For several years, a yearly WWE game was always expected, and each year tended to be a back and forth with certain features and mechanics, sometimes they were in, sometimes out. These games were received alright, that was until WWE 2K20 came along. Released with several issues leaving players with a buggy mess, with more and more issues caused 2K to stop and think about where to go with the franchise and what the future may look like for wrestling games.
After rumors and leaks came out suggesting that 2K was scrapping WWE 2K21, 2K made the official announcement that fans would not receive a WWE 2K21 video game. Instead, they decided to develop an arcade-style WWE game, in the style of the old WWE All Stars game, but this leaves players with either WWE 2K20, a game that has lost the majority of its player base or WWE 2K19.
Please disregard the in-game message stating that the WWE 2K19 servers are coming down on May 31. They will remain open for the foreseeable future.

On the video game menu, a new alert was showing up stating that WWE 2K19 servers would shut down on May 31, 2020. This would mean that there wouldn’t be any multiplayer available for the game online among other content that required an internet connection. Now, a new tweet has come out stating that WWE 2K19 servers will remain open for the foreseeable future.
It’s not sure how long the servers will actually stay active, but it wouldn’t be completely unlikely to think that they could stay active for another year to fill the gap of not having a new game.
