Last night’s AEW Dynamite saw AEW President Tony Khan reveal the highly anticipated ‘Forbidden Door’ event, a joint show set for June 26th in Chicago alongside NJPW.
This wasn’t the only major announcement Khan made on the night however, as during the break in between Dynamite and the Rampage tapings, the name for AEW’s upcoming video game was revealed to the crowd.
The game, as previously speculated, will be called “AEW: Fight Forever”. Eagle-eyed fans had spotted that AEW had registered the trademark for the name with the intention of it covering downloadable game software just a month ago.
Alongside the announcement, Khan also led the crowd in a number of chants, revealing that the audio would be used as part of the upcoming game. These included chants for FTR, as well as Adam Cole’s notorious “Boom”.
As first reported by Fightful Select, the tentative plan for the game’s release date is late September 2022, although these plans may be subject to change.
Very little is known about the game at this time, although we do know that Yukes, former developers of several WWE games, are working on the title, and a story mode is set to be included.
We look forward to hearing more regarding “AEW: Fight Forever” in the future, and we’ll keep you updated as soon as we have more to share.
