Our very own Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar, co-founder of the Evolution tournament series, recently provided us with a statement regarding Ultra Street Fighter IV’s inclusion at next year’s event. Earlier today, Capcom announced that the upcoming title will be available in the early part of June in an effort to have it ready for Evo 2014 in July, leaving many to wonder if it would indeed be part of the festivities in Las Vegas.
While further details won’t be made public until next year, Ultra Street Fighter IV will be included in the lineup should it meet the proposed release window. His full statement has been included below.
While we plan to reveal the full Evo 2014 lineup sometime in January, we wanted to put minds at ease by stating that if Ultra Street Fighter IV does see an early June release date, then we will include it in our roster for 2014. We’re confident that this gives the players enough time to prepare. In 2011, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition came out in June of 2011, yet it provided an incredibly memorable tournament.
More details regarding Evo 2014’s lineup will be coming in January, so stay tuned!
