Before the Full Gear pay-per-view in Newark, New Jersey, All Elite Wrestling aired the latest trailer for AEW Fight Forever. The brief video included cameos from AEW performers Jon Moxley, Chris Jericho, “Hangman” Adam Page, and Britt Baker. In the trailer, AEW highlighted the ease of access of the new game, as well as the pre-release accolades the game has already received. Additionally, new shots of Orange Cassidy, Moxley, and MJF were shown throughout the video.
The trailer — which was interestingly devoid of embattled former AEW Champion CM Punk — ended with a message that AEW Fight Forever will be “coming soon” to wrestling fans. After that video aired, THQ Nordic sent out a tweet that Fight Forever will be released in 2023. The game will feature a career mode, mini-games, and more yet to be revealed ways to play.
It seemed very unlikely heading into tonight that AEW Fight Forever would be released this year. That much was obvious, but at least this latest bit of news narrowed down the release window a bit. It will, however, be interesting as to when THQ and AEW do decide to release Fight Forever. If it is released in the spring, it will launch alongside a slew of other games. And, that list may include WWE 2K23 should 2K once again drop the latest WWE game in the spring.
It’s been a long and winding road for All Elite Wrestling’s first console game, AEW Fight Forever. Two years after the game was announced, THQ and AEW have finally delivered on releasing some much-requested information regarding the wrestling promotion’s first foray into the world of console gaming. That piece of information is when wrestling fans can expect to see AEW Fight Forever available in stores, and let’s just say it appears to be soon.
AEW Fight Forever will be released for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, PC, and the Nintendo Switch.
