Talk of a possible video game for AEW goes all the way back to Cody Rhodes first mentioning it in March 2019. Top executives of the promotion such as Rhodes, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks are big gamers.
However, it appears that AEW might be launching a different game as well that would be made available for mobile devices. Back on September 10th, the promotion filed to apply to trademark the terms “All Elite Wrestling: Elite General Manager” and “Elite GM” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Here’s the description of the filings:
“G & S: Downloadable game software; Downloadable computer game software for use on mobile and cellular phones; Downloadable electronic game software for use on handheld computers and mobile gaming devices; Downloadable video game programs; Recorded video game software.”
As of this writing, there’s still no word on when the AEW video game on Xbox and Playstation will launch, but Omega did say as recently as last month that it was in production.
