The continued development of AEW planned console game, Fight Forever, may not be going well with the game having accrued a staggering requirement in terms of budget
Michael Straw of Sports Gamers Online has a new article out that portrays a bleak image behind the scenes. With creators Yuke’s and AEW Games battling it out. Kenny Omega is said to “detest” working with Yuke’s, with one source claiming that the firm has tried to exploit Omega. He despite his love of video games, is a beginner in the programming sector.
The parties have clashed about Fight Forever’s direction and development limits. Meanwhile, the game is said to be “far over budget,” causing a number of intended features to be scaled back or removed completely from the final version.

Both Kris Statlander and Nyla Rose will be accessible when Fight Forever launches later this year, according to AEW wrestler Evil Uno during the AEW Games Twitch show.
