New character models were shown off, and it was confirmed the game will also be coming to PC.
AEW continues to work on its first-ever console game, and while we still don’t know exactly when we’ll be able to get our hands on it, some additional information was revealed on Wednesday. During a presentation led by Dark Order’s Evil Uno on Twitch, it was confirmed that the game will be called Fight Forever. Rumors that would be the game’s name surfaced last month when fans were asked to chant it for the game during a Rampage taping.
A short new trailer for the game debuted during the presentation in which two more wrestlers were shown. Kris Statlander and Nyla Rose, the first female performers to be shown off in-game since the reveal of Hikaru Shida. Statlander can be seen making her entrance and then performing a few moves on Rose in the clip which you can check out below.
While it had already been confirmed that Fight Forever would be available on current and last-gen consoles, Uno has now added PC to that list. The game will arrive on PC at launch alongside the console version. Still no mention of a Nintendo Switch version which might mean, just like WWE 2K22, there won’t be an AEW game on the Nintendo platform, at least not yet.
More and more little details about Fight Forever have been making it out into the wild lately, suggesting its launch might be as close as has recently been hinted at. There’s a chance the game is here by September of this year, and Kenny Omega has confirmed the goal is to get the game out there before the end of 2022. No official date just yet which is understandable as neither AEW nor Yuke’s will want to commit to an exact date until they know they can deliver the game by then.
Speaking of Yuke’s, the longtime wrestling game developer has been attached to the project from the very start. However, despite mention being made of a publisher being on board in various reports, there has still been no official word on who exactly that publisher is. Until that information is confirmed, it’s unlikely we will get anything close to a confirmed release date.
