What we know about AEW Games so far
Despite the limited information, there are a few things that we know already. The game is developed by Yuke’s. Yuke’s made a name for itself by working on the Smackdown vs. Raw franchise and a few of the WWE 2K titles. After the tumultuous release of WWE 2K20, Yuke’s stopped developing under the 2K umbrella. AEW star and gamer Kenny Omega is also on board with development.
A new report from Fightful Select states that not only has AEW Games found a publisher for its first console title, but the game is expected to release in 2022.
According to Fightful, AEW is targeting a late September launch for the game. This would coincide with what SGO’s Mike Straw has been told multiple times by various individuals close to the game’s development, as AEW’s All Out pay-per-view event takes place at the beginning of the month.
Gameplay features are scarce as well. Right now, all that’s known is that it will be available on the latest consoles and that it’ll also feature a single-player story mode, among other expected features.
The name is unconfirmed, however, a recent trademark filing by AEW suggests that the game might be AEW: Fight Forever.
