Release Date Officially Announced For Long-Awaited AEW Fight Forever

AEW has announced an official release date for their first video game, "AEW Fight Forever" — June 29, 2023. The company has shared the news in a new YouTube video, with Kenny Omega addressing viewers directly, and confirming that the game will be available on PC, Xbox platforms, the PS4 and PS5, and the Nintendo Switch.


"We wanted to develop an arcade experience that was fun, easy to pick up and play, but difficult to master," Omega said. "We believe that AEW and our partners with Yukes have created just that experience." The former AEW World Champion concluded by thanking fans for their patience, and stating that he hoped to see them in the game's online mode upon release.

The announcement of the impending release comes after a lengthy production period, with the game first being revealed on November 10, 2020 (via YouTube). In that first announcement, brief flashes of the footage could be seen, meaning "AEW Fight Forever" was already in production at some level by late 2020. In the interim, the company has released brief looks at the game and provided a playable demo to those who attended last year's Tokyo Game Show.


Rumors over the last week suggested that "AEW Fight Forever" would be arriving on June 27 rather than the 29, but AEW and publisher THQ Nordic have now set the record straight. Still, the release date is still just over a month away, days after the company holds the second AEWxNJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view.
