Psyonix has canceled one of Rocket League’s biggest esports events. The Season Nine World Championship live event was scheduled for late April, but it’s now been postponed due to concerns about the coronavirus.
“At Psyonix, we take the safety of our competitive players, fans, and personnel very seriously,” the announcement reads. “Due to worldwide health concerns surrounding the developing situation around the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are canceling the Rocket League Season 9 World Championship live event as scheduled from April 24-26 in Dallas, Texas. We understand that this is frustrating, but health and safety will always be our top priority.”
The company announced that it’s “evaluating all options to replace World Championship play” and will provide fans with an update once it’s found a suitable solution.
The company also mentioned that the remainder of the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) season nine will maintain its schedule up to the Regional Championships and Promotion Tournament.
