PUBG Corp postpones April's PUBG Global Series: Berlin due to coronavirus concerns

PUBG Corp. has postponed its PUBG Global Series: Berlin due to coronavirus concerns.

The company announced the postponement of April's PUBG Global Series: Berlin event today due to the potential spread of coronavirus. Dates and times of regional qualifiers may also be subject to change.

"PUBG Corporation is actively monitoring the spread of the latest coronavirus, which was recently declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization," reads the official announcement.

"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."

PUBG Corp. said it will continue to provide updates once it has a "better understanding of the best options for esports fans, players, and staff."

Publisher Private Division announced last week The Outer Worlds would see a delay on Nintendo Switch due to Virtuous, the Chinese developer behind the Switch port, being closed due to the ongoing medical emergency. The coronavirus was also cited as the reason for the cancellation of the Taipei Game Show.
