Evo 2020 canceled, digital replacement in the works

Evo 2020 is the latest event to fall victim to current events. The cancellation was announced on the official twitter account earlier today. The event was set to take place from July 31 to August 2. However, continuing health safety concerns forced organizers to cancel Evo 2020.

Fortunately, the message from the Evo Team does have a silver lining for fighting game aficionados:

Due to COVID-19, we are sadly canceling Evo 2020 at Mandalay Bay and refunding all purchased tickets.

But to keep the Evo spirit alive, we’re bringing the event online this summer. More information coming soon!

The health and well-being of our community is our highest priority. We hope e

veryone stays safe during this time.

Those who have already registered for tournaments will get a chance to cancel via form next week. No details have been released on what form Evo 2020’s digital event will take, or when it’ll occur, but we’ll likely learn more in the coming weeks.
