Apart from making in-ring mega stars, WWE is also known for their hit video game series which they make in collaboration with 2K sports. Fondly known as the WWE 2k series, fans get a chance to be in the ring and play as their favorite characters. With the next installment set to come out next year, WWE has some heartwarming plans. According to multiple reports, there will be a special tribute to The Fiend and his career at WWE. However,  whether it will be a separate game mode or will be included in the roster is still unknown.

The current installment, WWE 2k23, came out in March 2023. This installment had a special Downloadable Content or DLC called Revel with Wyatt. The late star was the center of this DLC and included him and his sometimes friend, sometimes for Uncle Howdy. The pack was released in July this year, a month before his passing. During this time, Wyatt was shelved due to the COVID-19 infection he contracted in February. This move by WWE proved that even though he was on a medical hiatus back then, the promotion still remembered him.

Rollins even admitted that the way Wyatt suspended fans with his gimmicks is something he admires a lot. Apart from that, The Visionary had once paid tribute to the star.
