Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, although fun to play, did not sit well with fans when it was released in 2017 with a lackluster roster and subpar graphics. Still, it was widely expected that the game would find a spot at Evo due to the franchise's storied history. Melee, and Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Sadly, "Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite" wasn't able to make the cut this year despite being present in the majority of past EVO events.

Last year's tournament comprised Street Fighter 5, the Super Smash Bros games, Tekken 7, BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Injustice 2 and The King of Fighters 15. Since 2000, the tournament has been held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada, with entrants traveling across the globe to compete in various different categories based on a line-up of popular video game titles within the fighting genre. Melee, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Street Fighter V Arcade Edition, BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle and Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2.

The five games that will make it to the main stage for Evo 2018 on Sunday in are Guilty Gear Xrd REV2, Super Smash Bros.

Despite Infinite being brand new, this will be the first time a Marvel Vs. Capcom has not been at the tournament - which is a pretty vicious slap in the face.

EVO 2018 will take place in Las Vegas from August 3 through August 5.

The lineup for Evo 2018 has been finalized as of tonight. The game received mixed reviews when initially released in September 2017 and supposedly failed to live up to Capcom's sales expectations, despite avid attempts at improving the game experience post-release. The tournament's organizers have now announced the games that will be in this year, and one big notable omission has been noticed by the fighting game community.

Normally producers, directors, developers, and company staff refrain or are barred from entering competitions of games they have worked on to avoid any conflict of interest or potential advantages that could be seen as unfair to other players.
