I stumbled upon Anthony Greene, then a few other guys I am not too familiar with after I posted. Looks like this company right now has been pushing a recently released game that looks like Quidditch from Harry Potter.
They also make Ark, which is pretty popular with streamers, and Citadel: Forged With Fire. They've been solid overall with their games but clearly favor RPG/survival themes so a wrestling game is a bit outside the wheelhouse.
So to anyone who was wondering what's going on with TEW20, it currently still in beta due to a number of bugs that cropped up in the open beta and skin reworking that's been going on. Should be released on the 14th still, but... Well, the artist who's reworking the skins might need a little more time so might be delayed to next week.
Anyways, reason I bring it up is because if you haven't tried TEW20, you might want to. Game doesn't play exactly the same as TEW16, so you might check it out.
It has been pretty fun checking out over the last while.
The TEW2020 interface is the most non-user friendly thing I've ever seen. I hope something comes along to make it at least intuitive, but holy shit. Forcing myself to get the hang out of it, just for the sake of the iffy 1997 mod (where Nash is in jail for second degree murder).
I'm already weary of the in game currency needed to unlock additional items, especially since extra currency is being used as a preorder incentive for the more expensive version. Hopefully this game isn't a microtransaction filled shitfest
1. If this is an announcement of an official AEW game, I could see the game being over-the-top in ways that would probably take me out of it (similar to the product).
2. I have a gut feeling that it's actually an announcement for a series of streams by AEW talent instead.
