This year’s Evolution Championship Series, Evo 2020, which was to be held in Las Vegas from July 31 to August 2 later this year, has been cancelled in the wake of the ongoing global coronavirus outbreak. The announcement was made via the official Twitter page of the event.
As seen in the message from the organizers in the above tweet, the annual e-sports gaming event will be taking place online instead of the usual championship event held physically every year. Fortunately, those who have already purchased tickets for the gaming tournament will be refunded in full.
As of right now, not much information is available about the schedule and other details for the online Evo event. The only confirmed fact is that the online Evo 2020 championship will take place at an unknown date and time this summer, with promises to reveal further information soon.
The Evolution Championship Series is an e-sports tournament centered around fighting games and is one of the longest-running championships of its kind in the world. Hundreds of participants attend the event held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada, from different parts of the globe.
