A new report has provided an update on the details for the AEW Fight Forever video game.
As previously reported, a list of achievements were leaked online for the upcoming first console video game for All Elite Wrestling.
AEW Fight Forever has seen several delays since those with the company believed the game would be released in 2022 due to various updates.
Fightful Select (subscription required) has provided an update, noting sources close to Yuke’s believe an announcement will be coming sooner rather than later regarding the game.
Fightful alumni Mike Straw recently posted that he’s heard the release is set to be close to the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view on June 25.
However, the various release dates by online retailers over the past several months haven’t been rooted in any truth. Gamers are able to pre-install the game on X-Box, which generally doesn’t happen until close to a release date.
The report notes that a release date is set to be announced “fairly soon,” but weren’t given any confirmation to what is considered soon.
Many of those who have worked on the AEW Fight Forever game wrapped their involvement as far back as a year ago. Those who have played an early version of the game said the play-style reminded them a lot of WWF No Mercy, and that it is not supposed to play like the WWE 2K series.
The game is set to be rated T for teen, and had to tone down some of the gore and blood in order to be able to reach that rating.
AEW has advertised that Tony Khan will make a big announcement on Wednesday’s (May 17) edition of Dynamite, however this announcement is expected to be about TV rights and the new Collision TV show.
