Bandai Namco has decided to reschedule three Tekken World Tour 2020 and Soul Caliber World Tour 2020 events due to coronavirus concerns.
Here is the official statement from Bandai Namco:
After careful deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the upcoming TEKKEN World Tour 2020 (TWT2020) and SOULCALIBUR World Tour 2020 (SCWT2020) events due to continued concerns regarding the COVID-19 Coronavirus. Effective immediately, NorCal Regionals and Final Round will be removed as official qualifying rounds for TWT2020 and SCWT2020 respectively with more information to come regarding The Mixup. We deeply apologize for any difficulty this will cause players and staff of these events. We understand that everyone is excited to compete in both World Tours and we are equally excited to share that passion with you.
This is not a decision we take lightly and the safety and security of the community is of the utmost importance to us. We will actively keep the community updated to tour reschedulings as soon as possible while we continue to monitor the situation. -Thank you
The coronavirus threat has caused many events to be rescheduled since the start of the outbreak. Many different esports and conference events have been canceled or rescheduled, and if not, they are taking extreme measures to keep everyone involved healthy. It is unfortunate to see this, but it does seem safer for everyone involved.
