Former WWE developer Yuke’s is making an AEW wrestling game

Former WWE 2K developer Yuke’s is hard at work on an AEW console-based wrestling game, joining two other endeavours planned for mobile.

AEW — or All Elite Wrestling — was founded last year and is showcased in a two-hour weekly broadcast called AEW Dynamite on the United States’ TNT network. The promotion stars the likes of Chris Jericho, Jungle Boy, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes and more. The title from Yuke’s will be joined by mobile titles from developers KamaGames and Crystallized Games.

“Every once in a while, a revolutionary company comes along and changes everything. AEW is doing that today,” said Kenny Omega, EVP of AEW. “When I first signed with AEW, I asked Tony Khan to let me help assemble the best gaming team on the planet, to make the best wrestling games ever. With masterminds like Geta and the incredible team at Yuke’s, we are well on the path to deliver a fresh, vastly superior gaming experience that our fans deserve.”

“It is a tremendous honor to be a part of writing the first page in a new history of wrestling games,” added Hiromi Furuta, SVP at Yuke’s.

While the console title will likely be similar in presentation and style as WWE titles developed by Yuke’s, KamaGames will offer up a gambling title on mobile in the form of AEW Casino: Double or Nothing; Crystallized Games will add a simulator to mobile devices with AEW Elite GM.

AEW has not detailed release dates, nor platforms, for any of the three upcoming titles. The game from Yuke’s is being developed for “current and next-gen consoles”.

WWE 2K19 was the last in the long-running franchise from Yuke’s.
