The upcoming AEW game has been officially named AEW Fight Forever. 2 new wrestlers have been revealed, and this new wrestling game will be making its way to PC, too.
AEW (All Elite Wrestling) is one of the few competitors to WWE in the professional wrestling entertainment space aside from Impact Wrestling (formerly TNA). One area where it has yet to seriously compete is in the realm of gaming -- while WWE most recently launched WWE 2K22, AEW has yet to have its own flagship wrestling game. That will be changing soon with the launch of AEW Fight Forever.
What We Know About the AEW Game AEW Fight Forever
According to GameSpot (via Reddit), the upcoming AEW game has been officially dubbed AEW Fight Forever. The game's name was confirmed by AEW wrestler Evil Uno during an official AEW Games Twitch stream. In addition, another two wrestlers have been revealed: Kris Statlander and Nyla Rose.
Kris Statlander wrestled with independent organizations in the Northeastern United States. She got a major boost from an April 9, 2019 appearance on WWE's Smackdown Live; she was signed to AEW later that year and continues to wrestle there today.
Nyla Rose has wrestled internationally since late 2012. She, too, was signed to AEW in 2019, although she started her full-time career with the organization several months ahead of Kris Statlander. Today's reveals of Kris Statlander and Nyla Rose build on the roster of wrestlers that have already been revealed which includes Hikaru Shida, "Jungle Boy" Jack Perry, and Kenny Omega.
Although many of the AEW wrestlers are not yet as well-known as their WWE counterparts, the upcoming AEW game may have some pro wrestling legends, too. A report from Bodyslam.net's Cassidy Haynes claims that Yukes has done motion capture for the late Owen Hart and CM Punk.
The final item of note about this new wrestling game is the reveal of a new platform: the official AEW Games Twitter has confirmed that the game will be coming to PC alongside PlayStation and Xbox.
There's still a lot we don't yet know about this upcoming wrestling game. AEW Fight Forever is expected to launch on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One sometime in 2022. You can learn more about the game on its official website.
