The AEW video game is still in the early stages of development, but audio capture for the game has taken place.
AEW also showed off some early gameplay footage that featured Darby Allin.
Wrestlers have often done motion capture of wrestling games to get a true simulation of the moves performed. However, don't expect MJF to partake in any motion capture for the AEW game.
"The reason people do that is that they need money. I'm not exactly the type of guy who is hard on that. I've done the head scan thing for the [AEW] console game and they've had me pose in my different pay-per-view trunks and robes. I found that interesting, but I'm never going to be a [motion capture] guy because I don't need the money," MJF said in an interview with the Game Marks podcast.
While there are not many details on the AEW console game as far as playable modes and match types, MJF does have a couple of suggestions.
"If there is a story mode in our console game, if I'm not involved then they are idiots. Whether I like it or not, I'm considered to be the greatest villain in all of wrestling. How can you have a protagonist go on this epic journey without having the ultimate villain? I don't look at myself that way, but that's how everyone looks at me, in the story?" he said.
As far as match types go, MJF commented, "I made Blood & Guts famous and it would behoove AEW to put Blood & Guts in (the game). It would behoove them to have Stadium Stampede (in the game) simply because the world you can be surrounded by. Being on the field, the offices, the club, the meat locker. There are so many rooms in the Jaguars stadium. That would be really fun."
