It's been nearly two months since AEW Games was announced, and it appears as if more information is on the way.
Earlier this morning, the company shared that this Wednesday, following Night 1 of their New Year's Smash, the debut episode of AEW 2.Show will be released on the AEW Games YouTube channel. Newly crowned World Champion Kenny Omega will host the event.

At their initial press conference, AEW announced the Casino: Double or Nothing and Elite General Manager mobile games, and also revealed that a console game would be released at some time next year. Yuke's, who developed the WWE SmackDown series for PlayStation and the WWE WrestleMania and Day of Reckoning series for Gamecube, is on-board for this project as well. Omega is heavily involved in the creation of the console game and even hired Hideyuki Iwashita, the director of WWF No Mercy and Def Jam Vendetta, to make sure that the project carried the same spirit as those beloved titles.
