CM PUNK, CM PUNK, CM PUNK…is in WWE 2K24

Last week the WWE2K24 team released a finalized roster for the title and many folks noticed a glaring oversight. Hell the oversight noticed it as well! But thankfully the studio got in front of this and squashed any potential outrage by revealing that the Straight Edge Superstar CM Punk will officially be on the WWE 2K24 roster!

Punk who returned to the WWE last November at Survivor Series was probably at the cusp of missing the deadline of being included in this year’s version of the game. But thankfully the team at 2K was smart (and enjoys revenue!) enough to leap into action, so that the Voice of the Voiceless could be included in the next entry of the annual wrestling title even if it meant he would arrive after launch. So don’t go into the Create-a-Character gallery to download a user creation, the real deal is coming in May 2024!

Aside from Punk, 2K also revealed what other superstars and legends will be coming to the title via DLC. Some of the notable names include, The Dudley Boys, one half of the Women’s Tag Team Champs Kairi Sane, Jade Cargill, Mr. Perfect, the Great Muta and more! The DLC will begin to flow starting in May and will release in a monthly cadence, usually including 5+ characters and MYFaction content. Full details are listed in the press release below.

The packs can be bought as a bundle via the game’s season pass…which is also bundled in premium versions of the title. Each pack can be purchased individually. For those who buy the title digitally, you’ll have a 3 day head start to play the game on March 5th while the release date is March 8th for those who buy the physical and standard version digitally.

WWE 2K24 will finish the story on March 5th on PC, the PlayStation and Xbox platforms.
