WWE 2K23 Update 1.17 Patch Notes – Fixes and Improvements

The latest update for WWE 2K23, version 1.17 (PS5 version 1.017), has been released on all platforms. This update brings a short list of fixes and improvements to the wrestling game, addressing reported concerns and introducing new features.

One of the notable additions in this update is the inclusion of imagery related to upcoming MyFACTION events. Players can now look forward to participating in exciting faction-based events, adding more depth and engagement to the game.

In addition to the new features, several reported concerns have been addressed in this patch. The Forearm Smash 7 move can now be used as a Signature or Finisher, expanding the options for players during gameplay. Previously, there were limitations with this move, but now it is fully functional and can be utilized effectively.

Another reported concern addressed in this update is related to the Right Jab 2 move in Create-A-Move. Previously, this move did not consistently make contact with the opponent, causing frustration for players. With the latest patch, this issue has been rectified, ensuring that the move now connects reliably.
