PlayStation has teased that some surprising announcements will be made at Evo 2022 later this week. Evo is set to return to Las Vegas as an in-person tournament for the first time since 2019. While many fans are anticipating tournaments for games such as Street Fighter 5, Mortal Kombat 11, and Dragonball FighterZ, it appears that some new announcements separate from the tournaments may also be made at the event.
Detailed on the PlayStation blog, Sony provided a tease of what fans can expect from Evo 2022 when it begins later this week. Specifically, it was revealed that PlayStation will be holding a live stream on 5-6 August that will feature exciting content and reveals from a number of different video game publishers. Although it wasn’t specified what these reveals could be associated with, some notable news could end up coming about from Evo.
“PlayStation will celebrate the return of Evo with the PlayStation Tournaments: Evo Lounge, a live show dedicated to covering all the competition’s exciting events and content. The show is hosted by players and commentators who live and breathe the FGC. The Evo Lounge will feature top-shelf curated show coverage, bracket updates, interviews with players, and exciting content and reveals from developers and publishers, such as Arc System Works, Warner Bros. Games, Capcom, SNK, and Bandai Namco Entertainment, as well as all the latest from the scene with pro players and casters. Viewers will be treated to the latest news for our favourite games and a few sneak peeks of what’s ahead,” said PlayStation about the event.
Evo 2022 will begin on Friday, 5 August, and will continue through the weekend until 7 August.
