Following in the footsteps of other esports leagues and competitions for games such as Call of Duty, League of Legends or Overwatch, the largest fighting game tournament of the year — EVO 2020 — has now decided to move online as well, foregoing a physical event in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The original event was planned for July 31 to August 2 in Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, with the official games lineup announced earlier in February to include  Street Fighter V: Champion EditionTekken 7, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Dragon Ball FighterZSamurai Shodown, and Soulcalibur 6, although Mortal Kombat 11 will not be on the roster. However, a new announcement from the organizers on Twitter now says that the event will be moved online and held some time during this summer, though information regarding which games and players will participate has yet to be confirmed. Luckily for those who were going to attend, all tickets and bookings will be refunded.

If you were hoping to follow EVO 2020, stay tuned to the organizer’s Twitter page for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in gaming, Call of Duty: Warzone has reinstated bounties and removed the “Most Wanted” feature.
