Event’s all over the world have been getting canceled or postponed due to COVID-19, aka “coronavirus.” The latest victim?… Overwatch League.
Overwatch League has now canceled all live events around the world in March and April.
“We are continuing to closely monitor COVID-19 (coronavirus), city-level recommendations and mandates, and all guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” OWL said on Twitter. “After careful review working in close collaboration with our teams, we are canceling all Overwatch League events scheduled for March and April.”
The matches were set to take place in places like Florida, Toronto, San Francisco, Atlanta, London, Dallas, Washington, Boston, and Paris.
And while this is a bummer for fans, the league does hopes to, “see that all matches are played when it’s safe and logistically feasible, staying as close to our originally planned schedule as possible.”
