Organizers for Evo, the world’s biggest fighting game Tournament, announced the lineup of games for 2018 event. While that’s big enough news on its own, there’s one especially notable detail: Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is nowhere to be found. This will be the first time a Marvel game hasn’t been part of Evo’s featured lineup, and - unless the competitive community rallies behind the game in a big way - it means that Infinite will have never featured on the genre’s biggest stage.
These are the best multiplayer games on PC.
MVC:I has struggled to capture the attention of the fighting game community for a variety of reasons. The roster was limited compared to previous games, especially hurting with the loss of fan-favorite X-Men characters. Ill-will toward Capcom fighters remained after a poor launch for Street Fighter V. Dragon Ball FighterZ was promoted in the same time frame as a more visually appealing tag fighter stuffed with beloved characters.
