Ed Boon, one of the creators of the Mortal Kombat series and a co-founder of NetherRealm Studios, recently published a Tweet that heavily implies that new information about Mortal Kombat X will be revealed at EVO 2016. His Tweet simply states that some “cool news” about the game will be coming soon, but certain letters of the message are capitalized in a way that spells out “EVO,” implying that the announcement will be revealed at the championship.

The Evolution Championship Series, more commonly known as EVO, is an event that hosts some of the world’s largest fighting game tournaments, which takes place annually in the city of Las Vegas. This year’s event will be open from July 15th to July 17th at the Las Vegas Convention Center and will consist of a series of tournaments with several games, including Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Street Fighter V, Killer Instinct, and Mortal Kombat X.

While the Tweet more or less confirms that news about Mortal Kombat X will be revealed at EVO, it’s difficult to speculate what that news could be. Mortal Kombat X was released more than a year ago, on April 14th, 2015. Since its release, two different DLC packs with additional characters have been released for the game, so it is possible that a third pack will be announced at the Championship.

What do you guys think? Are you a fan of Mortal Kombat X, and are you planning on watching the tournaments to find out what this announcement could be? Let us know in the comments below!
