In a recent interview with Wrestling Observer Radio, Kenny Omega, professional wrestler and co-Executive Vice President of All Elite Wrestling, shared a few juicy details about the soon-to-be-released AEW console game.
Notably, Omega confirms AEW will offer cross-platform play along with a variety of different game modes.
Not only can you look forward to cross-platform play in AEW, but Omega also teases a possible character reveal in the interview along with the promise of showing more of where the team is currently at with the game.
How soon is very soon? Omega makes no promises, but hints that fans may be able to see more of AEW at the next pay-per-view or pay-per-week event.
The news is undoubtedly exciting for those looking forward to the release of AEW as it sounds like development is chugging along nicely. It’s also nice to hear confirmation of cross-platform play, and that AEW will offer a number of different match types and game modes.
At present moment, AEW is being developed by Yuke’s who previously worked on WWE SmackDown games as well as 2K’s WWE games up until 2019 when they parted ways. Not only is Yuke’s involved, but the game is also being headed by former WWF No Mercy director Hideyuki “Geta” Iwashita.
All in all, it will be interesting to see more of Yuke’s work with AEW, and we look forward to more updates regarding where Yuke’s is at with the game’s development, along with other character reveals in the future.
