Ever since it was announced that a video game will be launched by the newly-created games division in AEW, fans have been patiently waiting on regular updates as well as when the video game will actually be released. Top AEW Star and one of the promotion’s Executive Vice Presidents in Kenny Omega made an appearance on an episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio and noted that they are working on the video games’ next presentation and there are a lot of deadlines they want to meet, which is why the AEW EVP wants to prepare something for the fans very soon, maybe even reveal a brand-new character or several brand-new characters.
Kenny Omega also spoke about how there is a huge emphasis on the actual wrestling part of the game as well as how the feeling should be there of the flow of the actual match within the video game and how they want the user to assume the role of their favorite AEW Star and have complete control of the AEW Star.
Immediately following this past Wednesday night’s episode of AEW Dynamite, AEW President and CEO Tony Khan, alongside AEW announcer Justin Roberts and AEW referee Aubrey Edwards asked the fans inside the Petersen Events Center to participate in recording several chants for a game, which Tony Khan said is titled Fight Forever, though he didn’t specify if it is the name of their upcoming console video game or the name of a different game altogether. Several chants such as “FTR,” “Cash,” “Dax,” “Boom,” “Bay Bay,” “Adam Page” and “Sting” were recorded for the game. AEW filed to trademark the term “AEW: Fight Forever” for merchandising purposes and video game use this past March 21, so it is possible that the title of AEW’s console video game is “AEW: Fight Forever.”
Fightful Select reports that when it was first announced that All Elite Wrestling will be launching a console video game no timeframe was provided, but there has recently been internal talks of the video game being released sometime in September, though that is only a tentative date and there has been no confirmation yet. It was also noted that despite there still being a lot of work to be done, the plan for quite some time now has been to release the video game this year and September is widely regarded as the target release date.
AEW’s upcoming video game is scheduled to be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One and the game itself is reportedly in the process of being released as Mikey Rukus, the company’s music producer, recently stated that some of the music that will be used for the story mode has a soft deadline and it has to be completed the week before the recently concluded Revolution PPV. Brand-new AEW Women’s World Champion Thunder Rosa also revealed that her prototype for the video game has already been created and was shown to her.
