Evo 2020 Cancelled

Evo 2020 was cancelled earlier this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but a series of online events were set to replace it. Now, those events are officially cancelled as well.

Joey Cuellar, commonly known as Mr. Wizard, has been accused of sexual misconduct. Cuellar was the CEO of Evo, but he's now been removed from the organisation.

You can find Evo's official statement below.


Over the last 24 hours or so, before this official statement was made public, fighting game developers and publishers withdrew their support from the event. Capcom, Bandai Namco, NetherRealm Studios, and more all released statements confirming their immediate removal from Evo. Numerous commentators, streamers, and competitors had also withdrawn their support.
