In just one year, AEW has accomplished what some pro wrestling promotions can never achieve – a weekly national TV show, back-to-back pay-per-views, action figures (on the way), not to mention a strong fanbase across the globe. With Tony Khan’s financial backing, AEW has become WWE’s biggest nightmare since the death of WCW.
In recent months, fans have rallied for an AEW video game, and the requests started pouring in heavily following the disaster WWE 2K20 turned out to be. The last five WWE 2K games have been dubbed as monotonous and lackluster to some extent, but 2K20 went above and beyond to cement itself as one of the worst titles in the history of gaming.
During a recent interview with Bleacher Report, Co-Executive Vice President of AEW, Cody Rhodes shed light on the status of the AEW video game. The title is yet to go into development and Rhodes requested fans to be extra patient.
“I’ll give the honest update: the AEW video game will be something all fans know about as we begin the process and as we move forward. If we were to make a very good game, which is our intention, it’s going to take time.”
From the initial announcement to the official launch – Rhodes wants to take fans along for the ride as they build the All Elite Wrestling video game.
“Game development is arduous, it’s a very creative space, and we want to do it right. We will keep people updated, it won’t come as a surprise, we want them to take the journey with us. Be extra patient so we can deliver.”
With this year’s WWE 2K title being canceled, there’s no better time for AEW to proceed with their video game project.
Given the AEW roster features some hardcore gamers, namely, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, so fans might as well start rallying for a Road To AEW Video Game series!
