Today on November 10, 2020, All Elite Wrestling held their long-awaited conference, to announce the release of the AEW Video Game. The game had been hinted by EVP Kenny Omega at his Highspots Auction, where Highspots held a virtual signing to the fans publicly.
Fans of the promotion have known Mr. Omega to be an aficionado of gaming with his friendship with CEO’s Alex JeBailey. CEO even once held an AEW Event at their convention.
What would this game be? Would it be designed in a retro aspect like the wrestling game Fire Pro? Would it be designed in the model of 2K WWE? Or are we looking towards a different style? Will this game be an unconventional approach to pro-wrestling games? Maybe it will be a card game like the NJPW app?
Full Gear: Tony Khan
“We’re making multiple games. We’re working on more than one game in AEW Games and we’re going to cater to different platforms. We’re going to cater to different kinds of games and different interests. I think we’ll put a title out, a console game that’s best in class [for a] console game. We’re really excited about it. We have some big surprises to come in 2020. I just can’t say enough, there’s still time in 2020. The show was great but there is still going to be a lot to come this year. That can impact our video game plans. And also, we’re going to put something out for those people, like myself, that love putting wrestling cards up together and it allows somebody to do the job I do, be the general manager of AEW and book cards.”
“There’s going to be a few different titles and then I don’t think we’re going to stop anywhere either. I think we’re going to expand here at AEW Games because it’s a great chance to build AEW, introduce gaming fans to AEW and introduce AEW to gaming fans, expand and build a business. There’s a lot to come there, for sure.”-Tony Khan
