All Elite Wrestling showed the newest trailer for AEW Fight Forever prior to the start of the Full Gear pay-per-view, which took place in Newark, New Jersey. Cameo appearances were made by AEW wrestlers Jon Moxley, Chris Jericho, “Hangman” Adam Page, and Britt Baker in the short film.
AEW emphasized in the clip how simple it is to start playing the new game, in addition to the praise that the game has already garnered before to its official release. Additionally, throughout the entirety of the film, brand-new shots of Orange Cassidy, Moxley, and MJF were displayed.
The promotional video concluded with a statement informing wrestling fans that AEW Fight Forever will be “coming soon.” It was intriguing that beleaguered former AEW Champion CM Punk was conspicuously absent from the video. Following the broadcast of the video, THQ Nordic announced in a tweet that the release of Fight Forever will take place in 2023. There will be other ways to play the game, including a career mode, minigames, and others that have not yet been disclosed.

As we headed into tonight, it appeared extremely improbable that AEW Fight Forever would be launched during this calendar year. That much was evident, but at least the most recent piece of information brought the release timetable a little bit closer. When THQ and AEW finally choose to release Fight Forever will, however, be a very intriguing development to watch.
If it comes out in the spring, it will hit the shelves at the same time as a whole bunch of other games. And, should 2K once again release the most recent WWE game in the spring, that list may be expanded to include WWE 2K23.
The development of AEW Fight Forever, the first console game published by All Elite Wrestling, has been an arduous and lengthy process. THQ and AEW have finally delivered on their promise to release some much-requested details on the wrestling promotion’s maiden step into the realm of console gaming. This announcement comes two years after the game was initially revealed. According to this piece of information, AEW Fight Forever will likely become available to fans of wrestling at some point in the not-too-distant future; let’s just say that it looks to be soon.
A release of AEW Fight Forever is planned for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, the Nintendo Switch, and the PC.
