It looks like the All Elite Wrestling (AEW) console game will be coming out sooner than we think, as the ever-reliable Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful has reported that the project is aiming for a late September release date. While the news hasn’t been officially confirmed by Yukes or AEW Games, Sapp has had a stellar track record when it comes to wrestling news and there’s a good chance that an announcement is coming.
Sapp previously reported that the AEW console game would have a story mode with output from various wrestlers in the company. AEW Executive Vice President Kenny Omega is very hands-on with the game and is hoping to bring plenty of features fans associate with modern wrestling titles, including community creations and proper online play.
AEW Console Game May Have Pinned Down its Release Window
The AEW console game was announced back in 2020 with rough gameplay footage that featured Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, and Hikaru Shida. Gameplay footage since then has also revealed Jurassic Express member Jungle Boy and former TNT Champion Darby Allin, with more announcements likely to come sooner or later.
Ever since its inception in 2019, All Elite Wrestling has grown its roster and now features popular wrestlers like CM Punk, The Hardys, and Bryan Danielson, just to name a few. It will be interesting to see how the AEW console game competes with WWE 2K22 if it does come out in September.
