There’s still no definite date for the tournament

After news that the coronavirus outbreak has been spreading throughout Asia, the World Electronic Sports Games (WESG) took a step to postpone the Asia-Pacific CS:GO finals.

It’s only been one month since the outbreak yet over 500 people in China have been infected so far. Another confirmed case was found in Macau, where the said event was supposed to be held from February 16 to 18. Initially, it was in Kuala Lumpur but after the respective organizers failed to secure the requirements, it was moved to Macau.

“In an attempt to limit international travel in order to control the spread of the coronavirus, we are announcing the cancellation of the WESG APAC Final.”
