Back at EVO 2023, the organizers including GM Rick “TheHadou” Thiher shared that EVO was expanding with new events, new dates, and a new venue. We even got the dates for EVO 2024 at the time, but they’ve changed since that original announcement. EVO 2024 is still set to take place in July 2024, but it will be bumped up a week earlier than expected. The new venue and games for the event have not been announced yet and the organizers added that a full reveal is coming in the near future.
The organizers behind EVO shared the date change for EVO 2024 in a press release on the EVO official website this week. Where earlier this year, EVO 2024 was expected to take place from July 26 to July 28, it will now take place from July 19 to July 21. From the press release, it sounds like we will likely hear more details about the event in January 2024:
The date change isn’t highly substantial, but it is worth marking on your calendar if you were planning to attend EVO 2024, and it's especially worth paying attention for announcements in January 2024. The event is expected to be bigger than ever next year with promises of an expansion of the EVO tournament brand. Not only are EVO Japan and the main EVO happening again, but a third event is expected to be announced as well that will be in the 2024 lineup.
Of course, we’re still waiting on details like the aforementioned venue change. With that in mind, mark your calendars for EVO 2024 from July 19 to July 21 and stay tuned for games, venue, and further details as they drop, right here at Shacknews.
