The long wait for the first AEW video game is almost over.
Today, THQ Nordic and AEW announced that AEW: Fight Forever is releasing on June 29th for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
AEW: Fight Forever differs from the WWE games by returning to the genres more arcade roots as opposed to a simulation.
The game has been developed by Yuke’s, a name long familiar to wrestling game fans as the former longtime developers of WWE videogames.
