The team behind WWE 2K18 apparently isn’t done patching the Switch version. A new Switch update, version 1.0.4, has gone out for all players.

We’re unlikely to receive any official patch notes from 2K. However, there are some user reports floating around that freezing issues may have been addressed. We’ll report back with any additional findings, assuming there are any.

WWE 2K18 update out now (version 1.03)

Posted on 7 months ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 0 comments | 0 Likes

2K Sports may not be finished updating WWE 2K18 on Switch, as we’re hearing that a new patch is live. Players can download version 1.03.

We don’t have any patch notes – at least currently – so we only have user impressions to go off of at the moment. We’re hearing that load times may have been improved in some areas, but the game still suffers from notable frame rate drops. Cards also now show the A button instead of B.

Two Switch games from 2K Sports have been heavily discounted on the North American eShop. Everything is essentially 50% off.

These deals are live for NBA 2K18:

We’ve seen a number of impressive Switch ports over the past year such as Doom. On the other end of the spectrum, WWE 2K18 is proably the biggest disappointment. Digital Foundry has explored the Switch version in detail and unfortunately, even after patches, it’s a rather big mess.

WWE 2K18’s frame rate on Switch just isn’t up to snuff. When the frame rate dips, the whole game as a whole slows down. That can cause problems for audio since you may hear a character speak, only to see his lips finally move a few seconds later – so things are out of sync.

WWE 2K18 has landed on Switch, but it will continue to receive attention. Blind Squirrel, who worked on the game for Nintendo’s console, says that updates are on the way.

The studio tweeted a short while ago:


WWE 2K18 isn’t in the best shape on Switch at the moment. Players have reported all sorts of technical issues, such as a slow frame rate in handheld mode. Hopefully all of the kinks will be worked out in the weeks ahead.
