Bandai Namco recently provided us gamers with an update on their 2020 major tournaments they’ve officially announced that support for all physical tournament events for the World Tours of Tekken 7, Soul Calibur 6, and Dragon Ball FighterZ are canceled.
The decision has been made due to the Coronavirus’s Global pandemic as safety measures for all participants along with the tournament staff.
“Out of an abundance of care and caution for the health and safety of tournament participants and staff, Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. has made the difficult decision to cancel official support for all remaining physical tournament events in the 2020 season for the Tekken 7, Soul Calibur 6, and Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tours respectively.
While BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment’s official support of physical tournament events has been cancelled for the 2020 season, we are finalizing online competition event solutions for the remainder of the year and aim to have more news to share soon.
Please note that while BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment’s official support for physical events has been cancelled for the 2020 World Tour, individual tournament organizers may still choose to continue holding physical events. We urge competitors and fans to seek tournament details through event websites and to use their best judgement regarding their personal on-site participation.
We want to thank our competitors and fans for their understanding in this matter and we look forward to bringing back physical events when conditions permit us to do so.”
