Many rumours suggested that the release date would coincide with Forbidden Door, the AEW and NJPW crossover show taking place on June 25. As it happens, this was almost correct. AEW Fight Forever will release just four days later on Thursday, June 29.

Fans can likely expect more news and footage of the game at the Forbidden Door pay-per-view, and on AEW shows from now until then.

We have gotten a handful of glimpses at AEW Fight Forever over the last few months. The gameplay was revealed in the lead-up to Gamescom 2022, where we got our first in-depth look at the game.

A second trailer was released during AEW Full Gear, a pay-per-view show in November. This one showed off even more wrestlers and features coming in the final game.

Then in the weeks leading up to the game's release date, we got quite a lot of trailers. The vast majority of these have been trailers for individual wrestlers appearing in the game, such as Eddie Kingston, Mr Brodie Lee, Sting, Thunder Rosa, and many more.

We have also gotten various trailers for the different game modes, including the Tag Team Hype trailer:
