WWE 2K18 is slated for a release on 17th October 2017. However, one can purchase John Cena(Nuff) edition or a Deluxe edition to gain a four-day early access to the video game.

Author's Take

The strategy used by IGN and WWE to reveal the roster of the upcoming WWE 2K18 is definitely more interesting and appealing than their efforts for any of the previous editions.

The revealed roster in addition to the promised features and a new engine is doing a great job of hyping the video game and pursuing buyers to purchase the latest edition of WWE 2K.
