At this year’s EVO 2019 event some new games were revealed and a tease that turned out to be a joke got fans speculating for nothing. In terms of game announcements, new installments in both the Guilty Gear, and Under Night In-Birth series were announced. The new Guilty Gear game’s title still eludes us, but the game is slated to release sometime in 2020. The new Under Night In-Birth game doesn’t have a release window yet, so stay tuned!
The tease in question (which turned out to be nothing more than a joke) suggested that the ever popular Metal Gear Solid protagonist, Snake, would be coming to Tekken 7 at some point. The official EVO Twitter account clarified in a tweet today that this was simply a joke.
