EVO shared the complete lineup for its upcoming Las Vegas event at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The lineup consists of nine fighting games that contain a mix of returning mainstays and brand new games. The main games of the EVO 2022 series consist of – Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, Guilty Gear Strive, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, Tekken 7, The King of Fighter XV, Melty Blood: Type Lumina, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Granblue Fantasy: Versus , and Skullgirls: 2nd Encore.
Players can now register for EVO 2022 on evo.gg and the event will start on August 5th and last until August 7th. EVO 2022 will mark the first time that Guilty Gear Strive, KoF XV, Melty Blood, Grandblue Fantasy and Skullgirls 2nd Encore are part of the lineup.
Most of the games that are part of the 2022 EVO series were also part of the 2021 EVO series. EVO 2021 has been canceled due to concerns about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. EVO 2020 was also previously canceled due to allegations of sexual misconduct by EVO CEO Joey Cuellar and multiple video game companies pulling out.
In early 2021, EVO was acquired by a joint venture between Sony Entertainment and talent agency Endeavor. Assuming everything goes according to plan, EVO 2022 will be the first EVO event since 2019.
