Concerns over the continuing spread of the coronavirus have led to the postponement of a PUBG esports event. The team behind the game has put a stop to PGS Berlin while they seek out alternate locations for future events.

The coronavirus has mostly been contained to mainland China, but it seems that PUBG Corporation is taking an overabundance of caution with their upcoming esports event. A press release states that they’re postponing an April 2020 esports event while this health crisis is being battled.
