The release of the AEW video game may be closer than many expected at this point. 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 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. Releasing around the time of a major event would help garner extra attention for the game with interest in the product higher.
The report also says that a publisher has been found for the game, though that information wasn’t provided.
“It was stressed to us that this is a tentative release date and there’s a publisher involved, though not officially announced,” Fightful states. “We’re told to expect that fairly soon if all goes well, but a lot of things could change between now and the tentative release date.”
Of course, it should be noted that none of this information is official from AEW, though Fightful is one of the most reputable sources when it comes to anything wrestling related.
As far as the name of the game, that remains unconfirmed. However, a recent trademark filing by AEW suggests that the game might be AEW: Fight Forever.
Should all of this be the case and the game is, in fact, set for a September launch, it should be only a matter of time before more information is released. 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.
