A new report claims that the debut All-Elite Wrestling (AEW) video game could be released as early as this September.
The game hasn't been given an official release date just yet, but has been eagerly anticipated by AEW fans ever since it was first announced last year.
Since the big reveal there's been very little information shared about the game beyond some early footage from months ago.
However, a new report from Fightful Select’s Sean Ross Sapp suggests the game now has a “tentative internal release date” for the console game, with September rumoured to be when the game could feasibly launch.
Naturally though, this is all unconfirmed for the time being.
Up until now though, the AEW game has been without a publisher.
But the report (via VGC) goes on to suggest that the game does now have a publisher, which should be revealed in the near future, along with confirmation of the game's intended release date.
What we do know is that the long time WWE game developer Yuke's are taking the lead on AEW's debut game.
Previously the Japanese studio had overseen the release of the WWE video games from 2000 to 2018. To varying degrees of success.
As you can see from the video above, AEW's game doesn't appear to be going for the ultra realistic look of the WWE games.
Instead, it looks like the game will have more of an arcade feel, and closer to the style of the legendary wrestling game, WWE No Mercy.

AEW's debut game is expected for release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, as well as PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Whether it makes its way to Nintendo Switch isn't clear for the time being, but hopefully this latest report indicates we could be due some official updates in the near future.
Hopefully this includes a look at the official roster, with confirmation of more wrestlers such as CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, and Jon Moxley.
