The statement goes on, “With the health and safety of our players, employees, and fans as our top priorities, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone April’s PGS: Berlin event. The dates and times of regional qualifiers may also be subject to change. The plan to host four PUBG global esports events in 2020 remains unchanged. And we are actively exploring options for when a replacement event can be held.”

Previous reports claimed that the deadly Coronavirus outbreak in China has delayed the production and shipments of Nintendo’s Switch console to its home market in Japan. Reports claim that the launch of Microsoft Xbox Series X and Sony PlayStation 5 may be delayed. These consoles are primarily manufactured in China and the current quarantines of different areas will adversely affect production. The analysts now expect a delay of a week to a month in the arrival of the new consoles. And even when they arrive, there could very well be a deficiency in the number of available units.
