Evo 2020 has been canceled following allegations of sexual misconduct made against Evo CEO Joey Cuellar, who was positioned on administrative left earlier in the day, and is now being relieved of all tasks with the corporate and tournament. Early this morning, Evo issued an announcement saying “The habits in these accusations runs straight counter to Evo’s mission of structure a secure, welcoming atmosphere for all of our players and attendees.”

Over the course of the day, commentators James Chen and Maximillian Dood tweeted that they might now not be part of this yr’s tournament. Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Tekken, and different games had been also pulled by the builders and publishers behind them. NetherRealm, the studio behind the Mortal Kombat games, stated “We stand in solidarity with those that have spoken out against abuse. We will probably be pulling MK11 from EVO Online.”

Over 1,300 individuals signed as much as compete on this yr’s tournament, which might be held on-line as a result of ongoing pandemic. Anyone who bought a badge will probably be refunded. Evo can also be donating the equal of the proceeds to Project HOPE.
