The Street Fighter weekend will culminate with Evo’s Street Fighter V finals taking place in the Michelob ULTRA Arena.
"The Street Fighter series is responsible for the origin of Evo," Evo general manager Rick Thiher said in a press release. "We are beyond excited to welcome Capcom to this year’s event and give our fans the opportunity to check out Street Fighter 6. We are committed to collaborating with publishers like Capcom in an effort to celebrate the legacy of our genre and inspire the next generation of the fighting game community."

As announced by Capcom in February, Street Fighter 6 is set to release for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (via Steam) in 2023.
In addition to the standard head-to-head combat players have come to expect from the Street Fighter series, Street Fighter 6 will feature an open-world story mode called World Tour set in the New York-like Metro City. The game's multiplayer will take place in the Battle Hub. In addition to a third mode called Fighting Ground, details on both World Tour and the Battle Hub will be revealed as the game's release date approaches.
In February, Capcom confirmed a leak that revealed artwork for a list of 22 total characters.
