The hype around the game was astronomical, but certain elements left a lot to be desired.

Following a disappointing start, AEW and THQ Nordic have promised that major changes are coming.

FUTURE STAR - AEW Fight Forever could yet shine

Unfortunately, given the limitations that exist within AEW Fight Forever, we're dubious as to whether any future updates can have the necessary impact.

That being said, we're excited to see what the future holds for this game and franchise in general, as AEW Fight Forever looks to kick out at two and a half and fight back for supremacy.
