All Elite Wrestling had announced the video game "AEW Fight Forever" in November 2020, saying that there was then the possibility of being able to play it probably in September 2022, to then move everything to November 2022, but the fans are still waiting and it seems that the reason for the delay has been discovered by Wrestle Zone who reported: “A source familiar with the situation confirmed that there have been some issues regarding AEW Fight Forever's rating, which has delayed the announcement of a release date for the game.
Other sources have told me in recent weeks that the amount of gore and gore in AEW Fight Forever has prevented the game from reaching a Teen rating on multiple occasions,” though that has thankfully cleared up since then.
A small spoiler on what could be the official release date of the video game, even if there is no official news from All Elite Wrestling, has come from the fact that Best Guy has updated the roster for the game on all platforms.
After the update, AEW Fight Forever is scheduled to release on March 31st.
The AEW video game is ready
In a recent appearance on the Swerve City Podcast, Kenny Omega, one of the creators, spoke about the situation: “It will definitely come out.
Not sure how much we had to scale it back, but man, I loved it. […] It sucks that the rating held us back a bit because we really wanted to get him out. The more time passes, the more this finished product we have of a game will be just a little dated.
A lot of the same people will be there and be there, but some of the same people won't, and you're like, 'Why have I seen this guy on TV for weeks, why isn't he in the game?'It's because the game was made, but we had to try to make it value well so you can sell it.
Now, I can confidently say that we are heading back in the right direction”. AEW President Tony Khan could be interested in purchasing WWE from Vince McMahon. Discussing the speculation surrounding AEW President Tony Khan potentially sending over offers, Dave Meltzer noted the following on Wrestling Observer Radio: "Tony himself on this day does not have the money to buy, but would he have the contacts to put a proposal together? Would he want to do it? I think he would want to, but could he pull it off?" I don’t rule that one out either."
