Even though it was filled with bugs and glitches at-launch, WWE’s latest venture into the video game world has proven to be successful in terms of sales.

According to the latest sales charts, WWE 2K20 ranked seventh in overall sales for October. The overall number is a combination of digital and physical sales. Below is a list of the top ten best-selling games for October, which shows that WWE’s annual video game, despite its buggy launch, outsold games like Borderlands 3 and FIFA 20.

  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
  2. The Outer Worlds
  3. Luigi’s Mansion 3
  4. Madden NFL 20
  5. NBA 2K20
  6. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint
  7. WWE 2K20
  8. FIFA 20
  9. Borderlands 3
  10. Ring Fit Adventure

The president of Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Visual Concepts, who are the developers behind WWE 2K20, said during a recent earnings call that the company is disappointed in the reaction to this year’s WWE game. But, even though the game is still filled with bugs, the devs are responding to the negative reviews, as they’re still working to resolve the issues with their latest release.

Since it launched, there have been a few patches released for WWE 2K20, but they haven’t resolved all of the issues. But, the devs behind the game have promised that the bugs and glitches will be completely resolved before the end of this year.

There are also more single-player expansions coming to the game in the future, as well as new characters. However, the post-launch content won’t be free, as it’ll all be tied into the game’s season pass. But, if you’re not interested in purchasing the season pass for WWE 2K20, the add-ons and new characters can be purchased individually, although that’ll cost you more in the long-run.

If Take-Two and 2K Sports wants to restore some goodwill, then they should offer all of their post-launch content for free. Moreover, they should add the game to Sony’s PlayStation Now service and Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, as potential buyers probably are no longer interested in paying full price for WWE 2K20.

Also, 2K’s former partner, Yukes, is developing an alternative to the WWE 2K series, so after all these years of not having any competition, there will finally be another American-based pro wrestling game on the market. Of course, we don’t know what it’ll be, but some have suggested that it might not be a WWE game, and instead, it’ll be a game that features the new All Elite Wrestling (AEW) promotion, which launched earlier this year.
