Since its inception in January 2019, All Elite Wrestling has become a dominant force in professional wrestling. Between successful PPVs and a weekly TV series on TNT, AEW has a foothold in the industry, and more is on the way. Aside from the recently released Jazwares action figures, an AEW video game is in the works.
While the prospect of an AEW video game has never been a secret, one of the promotion’s executive vice presidents, Kenny Omega has some new information about it. “The status of the video game is that it is currently in development,” Omega told GameSpot. “I can’t say too much more other than I am working very closely creatively with a team. And every few weeks, they have very exciting new things to show us. And I believe that we’re on the right track because I think we have a good team backing us with a lot of very, very good hands that are very capable. And when I can more, I certainly will. And I’m really excited to show the first little bit of footage that we have.
“So it’s a little ways away. We’re not going to be competing head to head against WWE Battlegrounds anytime soon. But when the game is ready, and when it will release, I think it has a very good chance of standing alone is probably the best wrestling product as a video game that you could probably find on the market. That’s the hope anyway.”
