The publishers of Street Fighter, Guilty Gear, and Iron Fist have all revealed they’ll be announcing some new information about the future of their respective franchises during the event, but Mortal Kombat fans shouldn’t get their hopes up. Series creator Ed Boon has told fans that there won’t be any major Mortal Kombat-related announcements, so don’t expect too much.
It’s also the first time MultiVersus has appeared at EVO 2022, but the LeBron and Iron Giant mainstays may want to look away for now.
