For years, All Elite Wrestling have been working on the launch of their first-ever video game; AEW Fight Forever.
The development of the game has been ongoing for years at this point, with Cody Rhodes being a part of the initial announcement of the game.
After a long time and seemingly a lot of delayed release dates, we may finally know when the game will hit shelves.
Per Fightful Select (subscription required), the AEW: Fight Forever video game is scheduled for release on June 27, as of today (May 19).
Mike Straw had recently reported that the game would be released “around the time of” the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event, which would be the case.
Fightful also notes that AEW holds the rights to the engine, so a future title being released with the engine is possible, but the working plan was for the Yuke’s title to be a one-off with constant updates.
Those that spoke to Fightful that worked on the game said it plays ‘very smoothly’, resembling WWF No Mercy, though there are some limitations with the create a wrestler mode, and there were no plans for a community creations that Fightful had heard of when they last asked.
The report says that an official announcement about the game is said to be coming over the next week.
