Let us now see all these solutions in detail.

1]Restart the game and the PC

The very first thing you need to do is to restart the game. It turns out that the graphical issue might be due to a temporary glitch and in that case, restarting is the best thing you can do. So, restart the game and check if that makes a difference. Also, if restarting the game does not fix the problem, restart the system and launch the game. Check if the problem still persists; if so, try the next solution.

2]Disable CPU overclocking (if applicable)

In this solution, you will have to stop overclocking your CPU. For one, you can run the cheaper one at a faster rate by overclocking the CPU. But at the same time, it can also be a main reason why you are facing the mentioned problem. So if you overclocked your system, roll back the changes made using the overclocking software you used. To do this, simply open the software and look for the option to disable overlock. Once you are done with the process, restart the system and check if the issue is resolved or not.

3]Reduce the texture and graphics quality of the game

The next thing you can try is reducing the texture and graphics quality. It turns out that WWE 2K22 is a graphics-oriented game, but if you try to run it on a low-end device with maximum settings, you are most likely to encounter the mentioned issue. You will need to reduce the texture and graphics quality of the game to fix the problem. Here’s how it’s done.

  1. Launch Steam on your Windows PC.
  2. Navigate to the Library option.
  3. Choose WWE 2K22 from the list of available games and click on the Play option to launch the game.
  4. Go to the Settings menu, then select the Graphics settings.
  5. Now choose the quality of texture and graphics according to your device specifications.
  6. Once you find the right match, save the settings and launch the game again.

Check if the problem persists. If so, try the next solution.

4]Set FPS limit

Another thing that can trigger the mentioned issue is Frame Per Second (FPS). Again, if you’re running the game on a low-end device without limiting the FPS, it’s no surprise that you’ll run into the issue. As a solution, limit yourself to FPS by going to the game’s settings. Alternatively, you can also use the Nvidia Control Panel (if available) to get the job done. Although the number of FPS depends on the specifications of the device, we recommend that you limit it to 60 FPS for the best performance.

5]Run the game in windowed mode

Running the game in windowed mode is another effective solution you can try. To run the game in Windows mode, follow the steps in the window.

  1. Launch Steam and open the library.
  2. Select WWE 2K22 from the list of installed games and click Play.
  3. Go to game settings and select Graphics settings.
  4. Change windowed mode to Yes.

Now press the space key (depending on the configured keys) to launch the game in windowed mode. See if the problem is solved or not.

6]Update graphics driver

It is clear from the error message itself that the problem is related to the installed graphics driver. So, to fix the problem, you will need to download the latest graphics driver update. Here’s how it’s done.

  1. Check for driver updates through Windows Update to update your drivers
  2. Go to the manufacturer’s site to download the drivers.
  3. You can use free driver update software
  4. If you already have the INF driver file on your computer, then:
    • Open Device Manager.
    • Click on the driver category to expand the menu.
    • Then choose the appropriate driver and right click on it.
    • Select Update Driver.
    • Follow the on-screen wizard to complete updating your graphics drivers.

Restart your system after installing the update. Launch the game and check if the problem persists.

7]Reinstall the game

There might be some issues while installing causing WWE 2K22 GRAPHICS DEVICE REMOVED GPU to be unresponsive on your Windows PC. In this case, you can follow the reinstallation process to fix the problem. But make sure to follow this step only if none of the above solutions helped.
