AJ Styles has been confirmed as the cover star for the next WWE video game.

2K Sports held a press conference this morning to announce that Styles would be on the cover of WWE 2K19. The game will be released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide on October 9, but few other details were revealed at the press conference.

Pro Wrestling Sheet first reported that Styles would be on the cover of the game. Their report also stated that Ronda Rousey would be the pre-order bonus character, like Kurt Angle, Goldberg, Arnold Schwarzenegger (as The Terminator), Sting, and The Ultimate Warrior have been in the past, and that Rey Mysterio was there for the filming of this year's commercial. 2K didn't announce the pre-order character or release the commercial during the press conference.

Styles spoke about being a big fan of video games and promoted a million dollar contest where someone will have the chance to play against him in 2K19. Those who complete a new mode that has yet to be announced can submit a promotional video for the contest, with four semifinalists then being chosen to face off against each other. The winner will receive $1 million if they defeat Styles.

There will be standard, deluxe edition, and collector's edition versions of the game released.

Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar, Steve Austin, John Cena, and The Rock were the last five wrestlers to be featured on the cover of the annual WWE video game.

2K announced that former WWE Champion, Rey Mysterio, will return to virtual WWE action – for the first time in four years – through WWE 2K19, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE video game franchise.

Mysterio will appear in WWE 2K19 as a playable character wearing ring gear reflective of his surprise appearance in the 2018 Royal Rumble. Mysterio, alongside a second playable character to be announced by 2K in the coming weeks, will be available as bonus content for those who pre-order the game at participating retailers.

A commercial with Daniel Bryan, Jeff Hardy, The Miz, Bobby Roode, Asuka, Bobby Lashley, Charlotte Flair, and AJ Styles wearing Mysterio masks aired during Raw. It closed with Mysterio announcing that he was back in the video game and 2K noting that he will be a playable pre-order bonus character.

Whether or not Mysterio will be making an in-ring return to the WWE hasn't been confirmed. During Rey Mysterio Day in San Diego last week, Mysterio said he was possibly getting ready to return to the company if they could agree to terms and said the sides were negotiating a three-year deal.

Those who pre-order the game will also be able to play as another bonus character that has yet to be announced, which is expected to be Ronda Rousey.

Kurt Angle, Goldberg, Arnold Schwarzenegger (as The Terminator), Sting, and The Ultimate Warrior were the last five pre-order exclusives.

WWE 2K19 is currently scheduled for worldwide release on October 9, 2018, with Early Axxess players receiving their copies and in-game bonuses beginning four days early on October 5, 2018. AJ Styles was already announced as the cover star.

A second pre-order bonus character has been announced for this year's WWE video game.

As expected, Ronda Rousey will be one of the two playable bonus characters for those who pre-order WWE 2K19. That was officially confirmed on Raw, with a commercial airing that included the voice of the late Roddy Piper talking with Rousey on an episode of his podcast from 2015 and saying how special Rousey is, that she gives people hope, and that he's proud of her.

2K Sports revealed Rey Mysterio as the first bonus character for the game last month.

Kurt Angle, Goldberg, Arnold Schwarzenegger (as The Terminator), Sting, and The Ultimate Warrior were the last five people to be featured as pre-order exclusives.

WWE 2K19 will be released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 9, 2018. AJ Styles is the cover star for the game.
