All Elite Wrestling announced the name of its first video game at an event. The title of the game is based on a popular chant (in German a reputation or singing) of the fans: AEW – Fight Forever . Fight Forever is a chant whom fans then call as soon as they are particularly enthusiastic about a match. For the announcement of the name came Tony Khan , President of All Elite Wrestling, most personally on the stage. Khan asked the audience promptly if they would not want to become part of the game. Subsequently, numerous chants for the upcoming video game were recorded. Since all Elite Wrestling is known for a very loud and enthusiastic fan base, it should be interesting to see how this atmosphere is implemented in video game. The game should come on the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, the Nintendo Switch, the Xbox Series X / S and the Xbox One on the market.

What is all elite wrestling?
All Elite Wrestling was founded in 2019 and is a wrestling product directed to youthful and adults compared to the WWE. This product can currently inspire fans both with fresh talents of the Wrestling business, as well as legends of the entertainment form worldwide.
In November 2020, first gameplay for AEW – Fight Forever was shown, which has been quite positive. A name or even a concrete release date did not exist then. This concrete release date is not available for the game until today. Fightful Select expects a release date in September 2022, but this has not been confirmed at any point of all Elite Wrestling.
Aew: WWE 2K competitor by Yuke’s officially presented
Ex developer The WWE 2K series Yuke’s works with the newly founded Studio Aew Games at a wrestling game for consoles.
Competition of old acquaintances
The competitor becomes the WWE2K series of Yuke’s, the former studio behind the WWE games. On board the project is also Hideyuki iwashita, Game Director of WWF No Mercy, which appeared in 2000 on the N64. Not infrequently one heard of AEW circles, especially from the AEW-Wrestler Kenny Omega, that the game would feel at best as such as no Mercy. To what extent the 2022 is implementable, of course, remains to be seen.
