Aubrey Edwards wants to start working on the console video game for AEW, but there is still work to be done on Elite General Manager.
AEW Games released their first wrestling-based video game this year with the mobile-exclusive AEW: Elite General Manager. Aubrey Edwards, AEW senior official, is the head of the project for the mobile release and continues to work to facilitate the growth of the game, through DLC releases like the Season Of Punk season pass that is currently available.
Speaking on the latest episode of Into the Danger Zone with Chris Denker, Aubrey revealed that she is currently not seeing any more of the console game than the rest of the general public as that project is being kept very close to the vest. She does, however, say that she will eventually become part of the team working on that video game once everything concerning Elite General Manager has been handled.
"This is gonna blow your mind. I'm not working on the console game at all. I am 100% focused on Elite General Manager. All of the things that you have seen of the console game are the same things that I have seen of the console game. So if it's public footage, that's what I've seen. It's very, very close to the chest right now. I think part of [why] the expectations are so high is that Kenny [Omega] is very, very focused on this. When he's not wrestling, he's working on this thing. It's insane. I will be working on it eventually, that's a given, but with Elite General Manager shipping this year, and then us trying to get out our Season Passes and all these things, there's a ton of things for me to be focused on, right now, around that project. I don't want to be like, ‘Peace guys,’ and just go over and work on the cool hotness, and ditch my buddies over here because it's still a project that is important to us and of course needs to continue to generate revenue for the company. So I totally agree with you that anticipation is very high. For me in particular, because I really, really want to work on it. Console games are like my bread and butter. I've shipped six of them.”
The latest update for the console game saw Jungle Boy’s in-game model released making him the second model shown after Darby Allin’s.
