Believe the Unbelievable. Achieve the Unachievable. Expect the Unexpected.

The highly anticipated console game for All Elite Wrestling has been officially announced, and it's being developed by the renowned videogame developer Yuke’s.

Back in May 2019, Yuke's announced they were working on a new wrestling game, departing from the main WWE Games series after developing it for over 20 years.

As of November 10, 2020, we now know that Yuke's and AEW have joined forces in a historic partnership, that not only sees AEW competing against WWE, but also sees Yuke's competing against the upcoming WWE 2K22 and their former WWE license, still owned by 2K Sports.

AEW Console Game Release Date:

The upcoming AEW Console Game developed by Yuke's is currently in development and is set to be released for both current-gen consoles (PS4 & Xbox One) as well as next-generation consoles (PS5 & Xbox Series X).

The exact release date of the AEW console game is still unknown, but Kenny Omega mentioned it could be released probably in 2022. He said AEW wants to really make a legendary game, so they will take the time and effort it needs to achieve that goal.

Below you can find the first Screenshots of the AEW console game, the Reveal Trailer, and the first confirmations for the AEW Game Roster and Features.

AEW Console Game Features Confirmed:

The following is the list of confirmed features we've gathered from official sources and various interviews:

  • Art Style: The current visual style of the game is said to be inspired by WWF No Mercy and Virtual Pro Wrestling, with a more arcade look than the WWE Games series
  • Gameplay: The gameplay is inspired by WWF No Mercy and Here Comes The Pain. It will be a modern-day version of those classic games, with fast fluid hard-hitting gameplay, a variety and depth of moves, and a lot of unique and brand new gameplay concepts and mechanics. It will still be a realistic game, with realistic moves and counters, but will be more fast-paced compared to a full simulation game.
  • Engine: The game will be based on an entirely new engine. Yuke's is using a new game engine built from scratch.
  • Game Modes: The game will feature a Campaign Mode. It will not feature a GM Mode, as that's included in the AEW Elite GM game. Other than that, it has been stated that the game "will have the modes that fans expect to be in there".
  • Create-A-Wrestler: A deep Create-A-Wrestler mode will of course be part of the game, with a robust feature-set. You will be able to create any wrestler you want, from wacky characters to realistic wrestlers from other promotions.
  • Create-A-Moveset: A Create-A-Moveset mode is also confirmed for the game.
  • Online Play: The game will feature Online Competitive Multiplayer. You will be able to play with your friends, against your friends, with all sorts of options and all match types. AEW is also exploring ways to allow for Cross-Platforms play and other innovative features.
  • Intergender Matches: As shown in the teaser trailer with Kenny Omega facing Hikaru Shida, Intergender matches will be possible in the game. The trailer includes the tagline "where dream matches become reality".
  • Blood: Wrestlers will be able to bleed in the game, and the blood will remain on the ring mat.

More confirmations will be added soon.
