PGS: Berlin Has Been Postponed
The deadly coronavirus has forced a PUBG tournament in Berlin to be postponed. Originally planned to be held April, the event is now going to take place at a later date that has yet to be decided. This is obviously frustrating news for the fans and players involved in the tournament, but it is with the best intentions in mind. So far the coronavirus has killed more 900 people and that number is expected to climb. That being said, it is hard to know for sure how many lives this new virus has taken due to the tight-lipped nature of the Chinese government. It is probably better to play it safe.
Future events might also be canceled due to the coronavirus if conditions do not improve. As it stands right now, there is no cure for the mysterious virus and it will probably remain that way for some time. Hopefully, some sort of progress can be made so there are no further hang-ups when it comes it other tournaments.
PUBG has been around for years now and it one of the most popular games on Steam. It is largely credited with making the battle royale game popular despite the immense success of games like Fortnite. Many players have called Players Unknown Battleground unfished or buggy. But since its launch, the devs have been working hard to try and polish the game off as much as possible. Now it appears as though they want to branch off into the competitive market.
PGS: Berlin was by no means the biggest event of the year, but it is still a huge blow to any momentum that PUBG might have had leading up to it. Only time will tell if they are able to regain the upper hand once again.
