While it’s impossible to list every single well-known player due to there being over 7,000 confirmed participants, this event will feature huge esports personalities. SonicFox, Punk, JWong, and GO1 are just some of the titanic players that you’ll get to see play at EVO 2022. Some of them will even participate in multiple titles.
We recently talked about how MultiVersus is a new game and is already breaking records. The game has only just launched, yet it’s already pulling in all of the big streamers. This is going to be a side event held by Warner Brothers during the event. It’ll be in 2vs2 format with a total prize pool of $100,000, which is one of the biggest ones of the event.
EVO 2022 is focused around esports and competitiveness, but it’s not only about that. There are going to be some exciting announcements coming in for all the FGC members out there.
Something worth mentioning is that Mortal Kombat is going to be a big omission when it comes to announcements. A developer from the game specifically took to Twitter to shut down speculation about a potential trailer or news drop.
Capcom might as well be revealing a little more from Street Fighter VI. This game has been showcased at a lot of events recently, including a Street Fighter 6 playable demo at Comic Con. They’ve been drip feeding news gradually. EVO 2022 looks like the perfect setting to see a bit more about the next big thing in fighters.
This event is going to be one of the best esports events of the year, featuring exciting tournaments and announcements that you don’t want to miss.
