Exciting news for WWE 2K24 gamers as WhatsTheStatus, a well-known modder, has been unbanned by 2K Games after a recent ban due to "violation of terms." The ban sparked a huge backlash from fans, with the hashtag "FreeStatus" trending worldwide.

According to a statement from 2K, mods that negatively impact the game experience for other players violate their terms, with the primary concern being a positive WWE 2K24 experience for all players. However, after a productive discussion, the ban has now been lifted.


WhatsTheStatus is famous for uploading modded content and unlocking features typically inaccessible to players. One of his most popular mods allowed female wrestlers to compete against male wrestlers, a feature not available in the base game. While WWE has had limited intergender wrestling in recent years, it goes against their brand guidelines.

The agreement reached between WhatsTheStatus and 2K Games remains undisclosed, but it's likely that certain mods causing stability issues won't return to the game. Despite this, fans are excited to see the return of some of Status' content that enhances the gameplay experience.

Throughout the process, WhatsTheStatus expressed a desire for fair treatment and transparency, highlighting the lack of warning or explanation for the initial ban. Other modders uploading similar content have reportedly not faced the same consequences, raising questions about consistency in enforcement.
