Street Fighter 6 Evo 2023 is leading the charge for player registrations



With Evo 2023 set to release just months before it kicks off in August, it’s perhaps no surprise that Street Fighter 6 has attracted the most player registrations so far. Capcom’s series has always played a prominent role in the annual event, and its top eight finishes are usually saved for last.

However, its sequel will almost certainly pick up the slack. Street Fighter 6 will arrive when Tekken 7 turns six (on consoles), and Guilty Gear Strive is approaching its second anniversary. There is no doubt that this will be the refresh that the franchise needs – especially in terms of Evo’s numbers.

Speaking of which, Guilty Gear Strive has the second highest penetration at this point, and Tekken 7 is third. Along with Street Fighter V, they made the ‘big three’ at last year’s event, so you’d expect them to retain some momentum.

Yes, you read that right, Melty Blood is attracting more players than Mortal Kombat these days. Mortal Kombat 12 can’t come soon enough!

Again, Evo 2023 takes place between August 4 and 6. Tournament registration ends on July 9th, so it probably won’t be long until we get another update on player numbers (although we’ll actually be changing the popularity list a lot from now on). can’t see).
