Today during the AEW Games 2.Show, brand new footage was revealed for AEW’s upcoming untitled video. Near the end of the video below (13:50 mark), you can see a brief glimpse into the current action for the game, which has Darby Allin and Jungle Boy going one-on-one.
At the moment, there are no further details regarding the game, which includes the lack of a release date or name. What we do know, though, is that back in June, AEW President Tony Khan commented that the company had invested $20 million into video games, which is what’s keeping the company, as a whole, from being profitable.
“We put $20 million into Epic Games, which looks pretty smart now because it’s worth a lot more than that now,” Khan said in a June 2021 interview. “So gaming is something we know a lot about, and I happen to work with very closely a gaming expert by the name of Kenny Omega who’s put together some great ideas and is doing a great job, along with [Vice president of business operations] Nick Sobek and a lot of other great people I work with.
We’re going to deliver a great game for people next year, and we’re going to make a ton of money. We’ll be very profitable on all things next year. But this year is a profitable wrestling year for us and that’s big and making a big investment in gaming is a good thing. It shows the health and the stability of the company.”
