According to Tony Khan, the company is not focusing on launching the game on just one platform. Instead, it plans to make it available for different platforms.

This is a great relief for fans since not everyone owns the same gaming platform or console. Furthermore, making it available on various platforms and consoles is an excellent strategy for AEW to capture the market.

“I can’t say too much. We’re making multiple games, We’re working on more than one game at AEW games and we’re going to cater to different platforms. We’re going to cater to different kinds of games and different interests. I think we’ll put a title out that’s a console game that’s best in class console game.”

He plans to roll out a game that will allow others to step in his shoes and be the General Manager of AEW. This will most likely be a game that will be suitable for everyone, gamer or not.

“I think also, we’re going to put something out for those people, like myself, that love putting wrestling cards together and allow somebody to do the job I do which be the general manager of AEW and book cards.”

Tony Khan has huge plans for gamers

Tony Khan does not plan to stop at just one. He has the company working on other games, which will be a path to introduce gaming fans to AEW and vice versa.

He plans to expand AEW Games as much as possible to influence every gamer to try the video games the company brings to the market.

“There’s going to be a few different titles and then I don’t think we’re going to stop there either. I think we’re going to look to expand here at AEW Games because it’s a great chance to build AEW and introduce gaming fans to AEW and introduce AEW to gaming fans, expand and build a business. So there’s a lot to come from there for sure.” 

Right now, WWE 2k Series has a good hold over the market as a wrestling game. AEW Games will need to match up to it and provide a brilliant experience to the user for the game to be a success.
