AEW Fight Forever, the first console game from All Elite Wrestling’s 2019 wrestling promotion, pits the newcomer against the long-established WWE. Many fans are eagerly anticipating the release date and other details about AEW Fight Forever, which features a roster that features some of the sport’s most exciting newcomers.
A developer recognized for its work on every WWE game prior to 2018 is in charge, and fans can anticipate the fast-paced action-packed wrestling games they’ve come to expect from Yuke’s to return. When the AEW Fight Forever release date comes and the game is tested, we will know for sure if Yuke’s has delivered on its promise.
With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the release date of AEW Fight Forever and what we can anticipate from this new wrestling video game brand.
AEW Fight Forever: Release Date
This game does not yet have a particular release date that we can share with you at this time. According to Wikipedia, the release date of AEW Fight Forever is predicted to be in 2022.
This, however, has not been verified, and one should take the information with a grain of salt because we have not yet had the opportunity to play the game in question. As a result, it’s possible that it won’t come out until much later, in 2022 or 2023.
A listing for the game on Amazon.co.uk currently shows a release date of December 31, 2022, as a placeholder. THQ Nordic will also be responsible for the game’s publication.

On Which Platforms Will It Release?
The video game AEW Fight Forever will be available for purchase on multiple consoles and computers, including the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
A version of the game is rumored to be in development for the Nintendo Switch, according to a listing that was discovered to have been stolen from an Amazon UK store. However, Nintendo has not yet provided an official statement regarding the Nintendo Switch port.
During an interview with Wrestling Observer Radio, AEW officials stated unequivocally that “there will be cross-platform gameplay,” so confirming that crossplay is on the company’s roadmap.

The Gameplay and Trailers of AEW Fight Forever
AEW Games has published two new development update trailers for AEW Fight Forever in advance of an announcement regarding the game’s release date. These reveal some very early gameplay footage and confirm that Kris Statlander and Nyla Rose will be playable characters in the game.
In addition, they show some gameplay footage from earlier in the development process. We are aware that the gameplay footage isn’t always representative of the final product, but at this point in time, AEW Fight Forever’s graphics are a far cry from the graphical fidelity of 2K’s most recent WWE games.
At the THQ Nordic Showcase on August 12, more of the game will be demonstrated; therefore, we are keeping our fingers crossed that we will see a new gameplay trailer and obtain a release date confirmation.
Types of Matches
AEW console game match formats have yet to be officially verified through official channels, however, Kenny Omega has said: “We have a lot of match types,” without getting into specifics.
AEW Fight Forever will feature a variety of match styles, some of which were revealed through the Amazon UK shop listing:
- Singles match
- Intergender singles match
- Tag team
- Triple Threat
- Fatal Four Way
- Casino Battle Royale

In the past, Kenny Omega has stated that AEW: Fight Forever would be released in September.
