AEW has finally revealed details about its upcoming video game releases, and confirmed that they’re working with former WWE 2K devs Yukes.
AEW’s executive vice president Kenny Omega was joined on stage by wrestler Britt Baker and referee Aubrey Edwards at a special announcement event, which was live-streamed on the newly-created AEW Games YouTube channel. The trio spoofed a Steve Jobs keynote conference and announced that there are currently three AEW video games in development … one for consoles, and two for smart phones.
“After revolutionizing the wrestling industry, AEW today shared its plans to reimagine the gaming world with the launch of AEW GAMES,” AEW Games said in a press release. “The new venture will initially deliver three new gaming options to fans including two mobile games and the highly anticipated console game being developed with the renowned video game developer YUKE’S,” they continued.
The two mobile games are called “AEW Casino: Double or Nothing” and “AEW Elite GM.” The former is a casino game being developed by KamaGames, while the latter–a management sim–is being developed by Crystallized Games.
The console game is being developed by Japanese developers Yukes, whose partnership with WWE came to an end in 2019.
