The long-awaited wrestling title is allegedly due out next month, with a release date announcement reportedly coming soon.
Wrestling fans have finally ben able to play well-made wrestling games these last couple of years thanks to the long-overdue reversal in fortunes of the WWE 2K series, but one game in particular that many have had their eye on – Yuke’s’ AEW: Fight Forever – has kept us waiting for quite some time. Official word on when it might launch has been scant, with publisher THQ Nordic having said last month that the game wasn’t quite ready for release yet, though it seems that might be changing soon.
According to Fightful Select (via VGC), AEW: Fight Forever is set to launch on June 27 to coincide with AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2, which is set for June 25. The game’s release date will allegedly be announced in the coming days. Whether that will happen at one of the many upcoming gaming events or if THQ Nordic and AEW will choose to do something separately remains to be seen.
According to Fightful Select, the release date announcement for AEW: Fight Forever was delayed due to the controversies surrounding wrestler CM Punk.
AEW: Fight Forever is in development for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
