DEVASTATION 2012 will not happen, financial and personal issues to blame

Say it ain't so.

DEVASTATION will not take place this year. Jedirobb, the founder and event director of DEVASTATION took to YouTube to be the bearer of bad news. Sponsorship dropouts and personal issues doomed the event.

Last year's DEVASTATION event saw Justin Wong return to his throne in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition action. This event was packed with top players like previous years, which makes this announcement more shocking.

Watch Jedirobb explain his decision, after the jump.

Fernando's POV: Jedirobb was honest when talking about failed sponsorships and why DEVASTATION will not be happening this year. The one positive you can take away from this announcement is the founder is already looking to host the tournament event in 2013. Not all hope is lost for DEVASTATION.
