After months of indications that AEW might be working on a video game, it seems to be all but official now. On Monday, fans found a newly launched Twitter page under the name of 'AEWGames' as well as other social media pages on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube under the same name. Shortly after fans found these pages, the company released an announcement to confirm it themselves. This was the quick message from the gaming page:
The major takeaway from the video is to be ready on November 10th, 2020, at 5 PM CST.
There are a few reasons why it could be an announcement for an upcoming game. The first is the page name itself. Additionally, AEW has filed trademarks for games over the last few weeks -- one of those being “All Elite Wrestling: Elite General Manager”. On top of all of that, a few different people in the company have mentioned it being in the works a few times. Another coinciding factor is the upcoming release of both Next-Gen systems, which would make for an opportune time to showcase a new game.
At this point, it’s not a question of if it will happen, it’s when. Will there be an actual game announcement next week? Or will it be a teaser of what's to come? No matter how you look at it, excitement is through the roof for wrestling fans and gamers.
