The AEW console video game may be released much earlier than originally expected.
AEW first announced their video games back, but no time frame was given. Now Fightful Select reports that there has been internal talk that the game should be released in September, but it is preliminary and not official.
It was noted that there is plenty of work to be done on the game, but the plan for some time has been to release this year, and that September is largely considered the meal frame from this week.
An AEW source stressed that this is a preliminary release date and that there is a publisher involved. It was also said that fans can expect the game pretty quickly if all goes well, but many things can change between now and September.
It was revealed back in mid-March that there will be a story mode for the game and that some of the AEW wrestlers provided input to the story lines. It was also noted that several members of the Yukes team that helped create popular RAW vs. SmackDown video games, too, are part of this story mode process.
While Yuke’s is known for being the developer of the AEW video game, no publisher has been announced, but this new report notes that a publisher is working with the AEW video game team. It is believed that once the publisher is confirmed, more information will be released, such as a release date and other details.
Kenny Omega is said to be determined to make the AEW video game a success, and is said to understand how integrated a great show can be.
The official AEW video game is slated to be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One.
