Report: 2022 Signings Likely To Be Missing From AEW: Fight Forever
Some talents look set to miss out on being in AEW: Fight Forever
All Elite Wrestling's upcoming console video game AEW: Fight Forever has been much-hyped over the past week and the title will boast a roster that features the likes of Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, CM Punk, Cody Rhodes, Kris Statlander, Jade Cargill, Adam Cole, and Britt Baker.
Not all of AEW's current roster will be included in the video game, though, and Fightful Select have reported that several talents who signed with the promotion around the beginning of 2022 will likely be missing from Fight Forever. The likes of Keith Lee, Swerve Strickland, Brody King, and Buddy Matthews all joined Tony Khan's company in early 2022 so they could miss out. Strickland and Lee are in WWE 2K22, however.
Fight Forever will include a story mode and Fightful noted it is "much different" than career modes in past pro wrestling games. When the game will be released has yet to be confirmed, only that it was planned for late September at one point. Fight Forever developers YUKE's have "kicked game production into high gear" over the past several months.
The Fight Forever cover art also leaked last week before its official reveal the following day and AEW reportedly did not know what the cover would be until it emerged online. It was said to be designed by THQ Nordic as opposed to the promotion's graphics team.
