Wrestling video games were once a very popular genre, although that popularity has declined in the past and most recently due to the terrible quality in which 2K released their annual wrestling title. AEW games may have the answer with a new wrestling game due out sometime in 2022.
The news comes from an interview with AEW’s EVP Kenny Omega, who spoke about the upcoming game and his own personal love of gaming. “We’ve incorporated a lot of cool stuff into the game so far that I think fans will love.” said Omega. “If they get their hands on this thing, I think they’ll have a lot of fun with it. It’s going positive.”
While wrestling video games may not be out of the woods just yet, hopefully additional competition in this space will mean 2K will step up their game, and then wrestling fans can finally get the quality titles they deserve. There was no word on what platforms it will come to, though it’s likely we’ll see this game appear on both PS5 and PS4.
