Riot cancels Valorant’s March hands-on gameplay event ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Riot Games finally revealed a lot of information regarding Valorant, formerly known as Project A. On March 2, the developer also announced plans for a hands-on gameplay event scheduled sometime later in the month. However, putting health concerns first, the company has now decided to cancel the much-anticipated event. 

Since the Coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, the deadly disease has spread far and wide across continents. Although the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention has revealed that the death toll in the country has dropped, the death toll outside the country has increased. W.H.O. director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus recently, revealed that the global death rate of COVID-19 is now 3.4%. 

Containment and slowing its spread are key, which is why several events around the world that would require participants to travel across borders are being canceled. Riot's decision is just one of many in the esports and gaming industry that has led to other cancelations and postponements. 

Ending their tweet with "let's play without the health risks. Stay tuned," Riot Games could be formulating new plans for the event that won't require any travel whatsoever.
