According to the source, the two big franchises of the gaming world have pulled their hands off from this event. Those gaming companies are Capcom’s “Street Fighter” and NetherRealm’s “Mortal Kombat. Without such sponsors, the tournament seems impossible. The Capcom fighter also tweets about the current situation while announcing the separation from EVO 2020.

EVO 2020 was the most anticipated anime gaming tournament of the year and anime fans were truly excited about it. The recent news about the cancellation of the event is no doubt a difficult thing for anime game lovers to digest, but according to the context of current scenario which is the withdrawal of support from different franchises and gaming partners.
