The official Cover Star of WWE 2K19 has been unveiled, and the announcement is... Phenomenal.

During today's WWE 2K19 press conference, it was revealed that the Superstar to be featured in the Cover of the upcoming videogame is none other than the current WWE Champion, The Phenomenal One AJ Styles.

It was also announced that WWE 2K19 will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on October 9, in both the Standard and Deluxe Editions.

When they purchase their copy later this year, players will also be able to choose from multiple editions of WWE 2K19. 2K introduced multiple premium editions of this year's game, which include:

  • The WWE 2K19 Deluxe Edition, which contains a copy of the game with special packaging and access to Season Pass, Pre-Order and Collector's Edition digital content.
  • The WWE 2K19 Collector's Edition, which contains the same features as the Deluxe Edition plus exclusive and rare collectibles, as well as limited-edition WWE SuperCard content.

Players who purchase one of these premium editions will also receive Early Access to their game copies and in-game bonuses beginning four days early on Friday, October 5, 2018 for the PS4™ system, Xbox One and Windows PC.

“As a hardcore gamer and ambassador of everything it means to ‘Never Say Never’ in both my professional and personal life, it is a dream come true to be selected as the WWE 2K19 cover Superstar,” said AJ Styles. “From Seth Rollins last year to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Cena, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Brock Lesnar, I am honored to join this incredible list of past WWE 2K cover Superstars and put my own unique stamp on the franchise. Get ready to join me in the virtual ring, because WWE 2K19 and the WWE 2K19 Million Dollar Challenge will be nothing short of phenomenal!”
