After revolutionizing the wrestling industry, All Elite Wrestling today shared its plans to reimagine the gaming world with the launch of AEW GAMES.

The new venture will start with a line-up of three new wrestling titles, including two mobile games and the highly anticipated console game, which is being developed by the historic and former WWE Games 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.

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.

The birth of AEW GAMES was ushered in with a star-studded keynote special event hosted on YouTube (which you can check out below), featuring Kenny Omega, who has been at the forefront of AEW’s console game, along with Cody Rhodes, Dr. Britt Baker and Ref Aubrey Edwards.

 

The event also featured the introduction of wrestling gaming mastermind and the newest AEW GAMES team member, Hideyuki “Geta” Iwashita, best known for his work on the critically-acclaimed No Mercy. Two mobile games will be available even sooner for fans.

AEW Console Game

A preliminary trailer for the AEW Console Game developed by Yuke's was showcased during the reveal event, featuring Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, and Hikaru Shida.

The game is currently in development, so the footage shown may not be representative of the final product.

The release date is unknown, but it's been confirmed that the game will come out for both current-gen and next-gen consoles.

 

AEW Elite GM

Developed by Crystallized Games, AEW Elite GM is the evolution of the GM simulator genre, taking the strategic elements of simulation and fantasy games to create a competitive and engaging space for the wrestling community to take part in.

AEW Elite GM is anticipated to launch later in 2021.

 

AEW Casino: Double or Nothing

Developed by KamaGames, AEW Casino: Double or Nothing will feature AEW-branded versions of slots, blackjack, poker and roulette, along with AEW music, sounds, videos, wrestler virtual avatars, gift packs and more.

AEW Casino: Double or Nothing is anticipated to launch this winter

 

About AEW

Founded by President and CEO Tony Khan, AEW is a new professional wrestling league headlined by Cody & Brandi Rhodes, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson), Chris Jericho, Hangman Page and Jon Moxley. For the first time in many years, AEW is offering an alternative to mainstream wrestling, with a growing roster of world-class male and female wrestlers that is injecting new spirit, freshness and energy to the industry. The inaugural event under the AEW banner was the sold-out DOUBLE OR NOTHING PPV in Las Vegas in May 2019.

AEW began airing its weekly show on TNT on Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2019, from 8-10 p.m. ET. The show, “AEW DYNAMITE,” is Wednesday’s No. 1 wrestling show and attracts the youngest wrestling audience on television. AEW’s multi-platform content also includes “AEW DARK,” a weekly prowrestling YouTube series, “Being the Elite” a weekly behind-the-scenes YouTube series, and “AEW Unrestricted,” a weekly podcast series co-produced with WarnerMedia.

Kenny Omega and the AEW GAMES team will provide updates to fans as well as ongoing development content, so stay tuned for future updates!
