WWE isn’t the only pro wrestling company around and AEW is getting a few things their bigger competitor has. A video game is coming and new details are emerging.

According to a report from Fightful Select, AEW’s console video game is coming “way sooner than expected.” It appears that a September release date is in the pipeline. There is still plenty of work to do, but the game will be here before a lot of fans expected.

There was a tentative internal release date for late September for AEW’s upcoming console video game. We were told that there was plenty of work to be done then, but that the plan has long been for the game to release this year, and that September is widely regarded as the target as of now.

The new AEW video game will include a story mode. There was a deadline for “certain music to be involved in the game” as well. It was not noted what the cutoff was on talent who will be included in the game.

We will have to see how AEW’s debut on console gaming does. Yuke’s Pacific, who helped produce some of WWE’s best throwback games, is responsible for development.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
