THQ Nordic Gives AEW: Fight Forever The Push Fans Have Been Waiting For!
Vienna/Austria, Jacksonville/Florida, Tokyo/Japan August 3, 2022: THQ Nordic GmbH and
All Elite Wrestling, LLC (AEW) and YUKE'S Co., Ltd. today confirmed that the release of AEW:
Fight Forever will be the tag-team event of the century! The two companies have joined forces to
bring developer YUKES’ latest creation to PS4TM, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC and
Nintendo® Switch.
“One of the first things I did after signing with AEW was to ask Tony Khan to let me help
assemble the best gaming team on the planet, to make the best wrestling game ever,” said
Kenny Omega, EVP of AEW and former AEW World Champion and AEW World Tag Team
Champion. “Well, we just landed the perfect finisher by partnering with global publishing and
distribution powerhouse THQ Nordic for AEW: Fight Forever. The THQ brand has long been
synonymous with wrestling games – there is simply no more qualified partner to bring AEW:
Fight Forever to the millions of wrestling fans the world over.”
YUKE’S president and CEO Yukinori Taniguchi said “I am both gratified and excited to have the
opportunity to work with AEW—who is breathing new life into the pro wrestling industry—and the
THQ Brand, with whom we have created an entire era of pro wrestling games. Using the
expertise we have cultivated over the years, we are taking on this project with the ultimate staff
from the YUKE’S Development Team in order to recreate AEW’s appeal within a video game to
the highest degree. We hope that fans will enjoy experiencing the most cutting-edge technology,
and the next evolution, in pro wrestling gaming.”

“Kenny’s incredible vision for AEW: Fight Forever is informed by his wrestling pedigree both
inside the ring and on the controller,” said Executive Producer Reinhard Pollice, THQ Nordic.
“Combine that vision with YUKES’ unparalleled wrestling game development history is resulting
in an AEW experience that draws heavily on the arcade feel that first won wrestling gamer hearts
more than two decades ago.”
A touch of nostalgia is just the beginning in AEW: Fight Forever. Players can look forward to
pulling off the most current wrestling moves seen on wildly popular AEW programming. This, in
addition to innovative, tandem offensive moves. Online co-op wrestling is going completely next
level with Tag Team matches that feature sequences of team maneuvers performed with simple

commands. A long roster of the most popular AEW wrestlers, deep career mode, create-a-
wrestler, signature AEW arenas, multiple match types and even some good ol’ fashioned,

unsanctioned fun await!
