New footage of AEW’s console video game, Fight Forever, is due to be revealed on 4 May ahead of a rumoured release later this year.
The impending console video game release of All Elite Wrestling has had wrestling gaming fans chomping at the bit for any slight hint at what to expect. Thus far, only a handful of names such as Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho have been announced for the game’s roster, while in-arena chants have been recorded at AEW events.
The game was recently confirmed as being called Fight Forever, with this coming Wednesday, 4 May, due to see a “sneak peak” on the next instalment of All Elite Arcade, which will be broadcast on the official AEW Twitch channel. This is scheduled to release at 11am Eastern time; that’s 4pm for fans in the United Kingdom.
We have something very exciting to show next week on #AllEliteArcade 🎮

Formally announced on 10 November 2020 alongside two mobile games (AEW Casino: Double or Nothing and AEW Elite General Manager), Fight Forever is reported by Fighful Select to be gearing towards a release this September. This would coincide with their All Out pay-per-view, which is to take place on 4 September.
Very little has been revealed about the game thus far. A teaser showed in-game footage at last year’s All Out Fan Fest weekend, featuring Darby Allin and Jungle Boy. This displayed a close look at the game’s model for Jungle Boy, alongside some of the moves they can perform.
Although there have been various non-WWE wrestling games made over the years, such as Fire Pro Wrestling World and the yet-to-be-released The Wrestling Code, this will mark the first major console release by a major wrestling promotion since IMPACT Wrestling released TNA iMPACT! in September 2008.
