Perhaps just as interesting is that we could finally learn where the new venue for EVO 2024 is going to be. For many years now, previous EVO tournaments have been held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. However, it was at EVO 2023 that the organizers had announced that EVO 2024 would take place at a “brand new venue”. It will be interesting to find out where the tournament will be moving to after so long. We could also learn more details about a planned third event outside of the main EVO and EVO Japan, which was also teased at the end of EVO 2023.

Regardless, Tuesday, February 6 is set to be an illuminating day as far as EVO 2024. With registration likely to open soon after, stay tuned to find out what games will be played, where we’ll play them, and how to sign up!
