The PUBG scene has been affected by the Coronavirus as PUBG Corp has postponed April's PGS: Berlin event.

PUBG Coronavirus: PUBG Corp Postpones April's PGS: Berlin Event

Even with the delay, PUBG Corp is still planning on four events for the year, "The dates and times of regional qualifiers may also be subject to change. The plan to host four PUBG global esports events in 2020 remains unchanged, and we are actively exploring options for when a replacement event can be held."

This was the first planned event of the year and will probably force every other event to be delayed as well. Keep an eye on PUBG Corp as they will have more information on the situation as time goes by.

The spread of the Coronavirus and subsequent fear surrounding it have led publishers to change or postpone esports events. The Overwatch League canceled its February matches for its Chinese homestand, and the Guangzhou Charge have moved practice facilities since the outbreak of the virus.
