Speaking to Andreas Hale on The Corner podcast, Tony Khan provided an update on the game.

"I'm not going to put an exact date on it, but we've put a lot of time and effort into the development of this game. It's going to be great, a lot of the great stars of AEW are in it and a number of people who have come in, even in the past year, will be featured. A lot of the big stars have come in, in the past year. We've added stars along the way that are important to get into the game for everybody. We'll have a great roster when we launch and we'll be able to add people through DLC as we go, but making sure we get the best possible roster when we start. We've signed so many wrestlers of the past year, especially in recent months, we may not be able to get every person in, but people who have signed recently, we're trying to get some of the biggest names in because we think that's the best chance for the launch of the game, to have some of the biggest stars in the world in the game. We already had a lot of them and we're adding more," he said.

Fightful Select reported on May 3, "the roster size sits around 50, and that there will be some unfortunate notable omissions in the first release of the video game."

Fightful will continue to update fans on the status of the game as more is known.
