The general WWE 2K18 release date has been set for Tuesday, October 17, for many PS4 and Xbox One fans.
Those with Deluxe Edition of the game have already been given access, but that soon won’t matter with the final launch date confirmed.
2K haven’t specified a time when WWE fans will be able to start playing on Tuesday, although it seems likely that it will be early, due to the servers already being live.
The official Microsoft Store has the release time set for October 17, at 5am, while the game is also confirmed to have an install size of 42.41 GB.
The PlayStation Store has a slightly different listing, with a 12am Eastern Time slot posted as when things should go live on PS4.
That would still be around 5am in the UK for those hoping to get an early start.
And there’s more bad news for Steam players hoping to start early, with the WWE 2K18 PC version listed as going live in 19 hours.
It’s unclear if this countdown will reset when we midnight in the United States, or if fans will actually have to wait that long.
Fans are reporting that the WWE 2K18 Steam pre-load is now available, which should help speed up the process of jumping into the game after it does launch.
Another version of the game for Nintendo Switch is also slated to arrive, but not until later this Autumn.
It should also be noted that a microSD card (sold separately) with free storage space of minimum 32GB is required to download this game, plus 1GB on the system memory. You must have your microSD card inserted before beginning the download.
The complete WWE 2K18 roster includes popular Legends, Women Wrestlers, Tag Team partnerships, current Superstars and some of the All-time Greats.

New details have also been revealed about the game’s upcoming DLC and Season Pass options.
The return of The Hardy Boyz, the accelerated track to MyPlayer stardom and a slew of new moves are among the offerings included in the WWE 2K18 DLC packs.
The WWE 2K18 Season Pass will include access to all of these announced DLC offerings, which currently number five in total.
