Since the showcase, the devs have been working with the FGC via online feedback, hands-on playtest and visiting more events similar to EVO.

Riot Games plans to set up more pop-ups in 2024 worldwide, starting with EVO Japan in April 2024. The dev team will also share some of their plans online to get the community’s feedback. Tom Cannon, the Executive Producer of 2XKO also hinted at a possible at-home playtest by the end of 2024.

When will 2XKO release?
