The most recently anticipated iteration of the WWE 2K series from developer Visual Concepts (2K), with animation support from Technicolor Games: WWE 2K22 released in March 2022.
For this project Technicolor Games created a vast number of sequences from camera layout, motion capture body animation clean-up, to facial animation.
As many of the in-game sequences involve complex and intricate multiple character interactions, real-time WWE footage was studied in great detail during the creation and development of handheld camera motion and realistic angle capture.
Hybrid and Motion Capture Body Animation artists at Technicolor Games worked on some of the most iconic characters from WWE such as Roman Reigns, Kalisto, Rey Mysterio, Goldberg, Gran Metalik, and Jimmy Uso. Working on WWE superstar characters’ signature moves has been an incredible and rewarding experience for our body animation artists.
Career Cut-Scenes, Victory Showcase, and Showcase Entrances are among a few of the many incredible sequences the Technicolor Games team delivered for WWE 2K22.
The title reviewed well for 2K, with standout quotes such as;
“WWE 2K22 is the best WWE game since they started” PSU.
“The visuals are a sight to behold” Hardcore Gamer.
“WWE 2K22 looks Great… improved cinematography and lighting makes everyone look better than ever” Game Informer.
Technicolor Games is proud to continue our work with Visual Concepts and 2K. Our relationship began in 2013 with one of the very first NBA 2K iterations, we have since worked on many incredible titles together since.
