The IGN Pro League (IPL) and Capcom have officially partnered for the 2013 tournament season. The partnership currently includes Street Fighter X Tekken v2013 and Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012.

Discussions are being held about the possibility of adding other titles as well, but what other games may be at the negotiation table hasn't been disclosed.

More details will be released via the IPL Fighters TwitchTV channel at 12 p.m. PST on Friday, November 30th.
Matt Dahlgren, Senior Product Manager at Capcom, added that:

With the positive reception of the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary global tournament series, Capcom has been more focused on the competitive scene than at any other point in our company's history, and we're constantly exploring new ways to provide bigger and better tournament experiences.

It was also stated that IPL and Capcom will be offering one of the largest prize pools in the history of their fighting game tournaments.

The official tournament will start in 2013, but exhibition matches are starting this weekend, from Nov. 29 - Dec. 2, 2012, in Las Vegas.

Dead or Alive 5 was also previously announced as an IPL game.
