Jeff Jarrett Gives Update On Anticipated Video Game

Jeff Jarrett Gives Update On Anticipated Video Game WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett has provided an update on pro wrestling role playing fantasy videogame WrestleQuest.

WrestleQuest lets players explore a retro-fantasy realm inspired by professional wrestling, and encounter characters based on wrestling icons such as Macho Man Randy Savage, Andre the Giant, and Jake the Snake Roberts.

Jarrett revealed in May that he was working on the game. On the most recent episode of the My World with Jeff Jarrett podcast, Jarrett gave an update on the game.

He said:

“WrestleQuest is being released Q1. That’s going to be a whole big thing. I think we’re up to 13 awards, no kidding. I’m just a small part of the deal. Man, it’s crazy I’m saying this, but it’s literally taken the video game market by storm.

“It is something that kind of started and when you kind of get into the weeds, and again, I wasn’t a gamer. I’m not a gamer. I’m the wrestling side of this, but as I’ve understood the business more and more and just see the success, I went over to the Japan convention and won some awards over there.

“You wrestling fans out there, this is not a simulation game like Madden Football or something like that. It’s not a WWE2K type game. It’s storytelling, and this is right up our alley.

“That’s what this game is, you know, the IP of Andre the Giant, Macho Man Randy Savage, and the Road Warriors and Jake and on and on and on. It’s a story. It’s Japanese role playing. So it’s gonna be a really cool game. We have our weekly and monthly updating calls and WrestleQuest is super cool, coming out Q1 2023, for sure.”

The wrestling video game market is set to be packed heading into 2023, with the still yet to be announced release date of AEW: Fight Forever seemingly set for Q1 2023, as well as the yearly WWE release, WWE 2K23, set to launch in the first quarter of the year.

Jeff Jarrett last appeared on WWE TV back at SummerSlam, serving as the special guest referee for the Usos vs Street Profits tag team championship match. He then took part in Ric Flair’s Last Match 24 hours later.
