EVO 2024 & EVO Japan 2024 dates revealed with third event teased

EVO and EVO Japan are on their way back, but a third event may soon be joining them.


While EVO 2023 continues to unfold with just one more Top 6 remaining, the future of the event has already been outlined. Both EVO and EVO Japan have official dates for 2024. While EVO will return to familiar stomping grounds, EVO Japan is heading to an exciting location.

EVO 2024 will return to Las Vegas on July 26-28, 2024. It will likely return to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center and Michelob ULTRA Arena (formerly the Mandalay Bay Events Center), the site of several previous EVO events. EVO Japan 2024, on the other hand, looks to be on the move to the Ariake GYM-EX, which is the site of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

More intriguing, however, is a potential new event that may join them. EVO General Manager Rick Thiher stopped just short of an official reveal, instead dubbing it "an announcement of an announcement."

Following these reveals came the announcement that EVO 2023 had broken the all-time attendance record for an esports event. To celebrate this occasion, Nevada Governor Joe Lombardo took the stage and named August 6 "EVO Day" in the state going forward.

We'll continue to watch for the latest EVO news here at Shacknews, which includes updates on all of the winners and announcements from the weekend's event.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
