Yesterday afternoon Joey “Mr Wizard” Cuellar announced on Twitter that the Evo 2017 Announcement show will take place on January 24th. Everything that EVO 2017 has in-stock is going to be showcased at this event, and most-importantly we’re going to find out what games will be a part of the official line-up.
Happy to say that I'll be hosting the @EVO reveal show on January 24th. Also hoping that General Chaos makes its way into Evo this year!

The event is going to be hosted by Mike Ross, the People’s Champ of Street Fighter and one of the co-hosts of Cross Counter TV.
This news is coming a couple days after Cuellar posted a poll on Twitter to decide which NetherRealm Studios’ game people would rather see at EVO 2017: Injustice 2 or Mortal Kombat XL. The poll was pretty close, but the winner was Injustice 2 with a 59% majority out of 2,717 votes. It looks like a sad day for Mortal Kombat because there is a high possibility it won’t be at EVO this year.
7 games for EVO2017? My guess is SFV, Melee, Smash 4, Revelator, Tekken 7, KOFXIV, MKX (or Injustice2)
Honorable mention: Skullgirls, mvc3
