It’s finally here. After months of build-up, AEW’s first video game, Fight Forever, has received its official release date.
In an official press release by THQ Nordic and AEW, the game will be available on Thursday, June 29, and playable on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Kenny Omega, who oversaw the development of the game, had the following comments:
“When I first signed with AEW, Tony Khan gave me the opportunity to assemble the best gaming team that understands and respects professional wrestling, to make the best wrestling games ever,” said Kenny Omega, Executive Vice President and former AEW World Champion and World Tag Team Champion at AEW. “Thanks to our incredible collaboration with Geta, YUKE’s, and THQ Nordic, a new era of professional wrestling gaming is quickly approaching. AEW: Fight Forever has exceeded my highest expectations, and I’m confident that June 29 will be a momentous day for wrestling fans and gamers alike.”
“Since our initial announcement, fans worldwide have shown unbridled passion around the launch of Fight Forever, and AEW has proven through our exciting storylines and hard-hitting wrestling action that good things come to those who wait,” said Tony Khan, CEO, GM and Head of Creative of AEW. “With Fight Forever, Kenny and our world-class team have delivered an authentic, nostalgic feel of wrestling games past, along with the unmatched creativity that AEW brings to the table. It’s going to be cool to see our fans finally getting a fresh and much-needed alternative next-gen console wrestling game on June 29. AEW has the greatest fans on the planet, and I’m excited for them to experience this new way to engage with our stars.”
I know that a lot of people are excited about this game, and I’m sure that it will do very well in sales. This is a great thing for AEW, and I wish them congratulations on this endeavor coming to fruition!
