Kenny Omega has revealed that an announcement about an AEW video game could come before 2019 is done. Omega was part of the Being the Elite Mailbag Live panel at Starrcast (per Wrestling Inc) and was asked about an AEW video game.

“You know I’ve been globetrotting a little bit and I’ve been trying to assemble and piece together some people who might be in the know the vision of what this needs to be,” he said. “Trust me, having a video game for AEW is top of my priority list, and I can’t share anything right now, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there might be something to announce by the end of the year, so be ready for that, guys.”

Omega was also asked if he by a fan if they could face off in Tekken, and in his answer suggested that he may appear in a fighting game. He didn’t give details or how this would happen; it’s entirely possible that he could mean performance capture for another game, or appearing in the game as himself. “I’m not touching the game [Tekken] until they actually put me in it,” he said. “Now I’ve had this discussion with many people, had it with Capom, Konami. I’m not talking about a wrestling game, but you might actually see Kenny Omega in a fighting game real soon. Things are coming together. That game whatever it may be, not to spoil anything.”
