– Justin Leeper, who worked as a writer on the WWE SmackDown vs. Raw series, posted a video where he claims members of the WWE 2K20 development team have quit. He also noted that the budget for WWE 2K21 will be slashed due to the poor performance of WWE 2K20. Highlights (via Fightful) are below.

“2K and the people within it are trying to distance themselves from it. I’ve heard about double digit people who were on the team who have quit. They haven’t left for other stuff, they just quit because, ‘Man, I don’t want this stink on me anymore.’

“2K20 is selling poorly, it’s doing poorly all around. That means the budget is going to be cut. It means 2K21 is gonna have to be made for less money. Less money to fix things, innovate, and now there are about ten less people on the team. As you can tell, the outlook is not good for 2K21 either.”
