Updated: The official Evolution Twitter account was updated with a new message saying that the games for Evolution 2013 are still being decided on. It reads: "Contrary to what you might have heard, the roster for Evo 2013 is still very much undecided. Play the games you love!"

The thread where MrWizard stated that Street Fighter X Tekken wouldn't be in the lineup was also recently removed from the Shoryuken forums.

Earlier, in a rare moment of prohibition, long before any EVO 2013 games have officially been announced, MrWizard (one of the lead organizers for the Evolution tournament series) stepped onto the SRK forums to ensure there wouldn't be any confusion regarding the inclusion or exclusion of Street Fighter X Tekken.

The thread in question was a speculation topic about EVO 2013's game lineup and arguments were going on before Wizard stepped in.
