This event will be followed by Evo Warm-up Rounds on 26th June to 13th July, and Evo Side Tournaments from 8th July to 3rd August. The latter features tournaments in Dragon Ball FighterZ, Skullgirls, Soulcalibur VI and more.

This announcement comes ahead of Guilty Gear Strive’s release on 11th June, which looks set to spearhead Sony’s push in becoming the console to play for fighting game aficionados.

Evo Online 2021 will take place from 6th to 15th August, with tournaments in Guilty Gear Strive, Tekken 7, Street Fighter V: Champion Edition and Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate.

Last year’s Evo Online was cancelled following misconduct allegations against co-founder Joey Cuellar, who has since been ousted from the company.
