It was only a matter of time until we heard any official announcement cancelling the last Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Major, the ONE Esports Singapore Major 2020.
Tournament organizers PGL have officially cancelled the Dota Pro Circuit Major, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
ONE Esports Singapore cancelled
After Valve announced The International 2020 would be delayed, likely only taking place next year, Dota 2 fans had to wonder what would happen to the one DPC Major standing.
ONE Esports Singapore Major 2020 was scheduled to take place from 20th to 28th June, but due to the current global COVID-19 pandemic, this is clearly not possible anymore.
PGL made a short announcement on Twitter:
Due to the current global situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and the current regulations in Singapore, we want to inform everybody that the last DOTA 2 Major of the year, Singapore Major, will be canceled.— PGL (@pglesports) May 8, 2020
Take care, be strong, and keep yourselves safe and healthy! pic.twitter.com/h7mDp5TmR0
It remains to be seen if ONE Esports Singapore could be turned into an online league, such as ESL Los Angeles and Birmingham Majors did. At the time of writing, there is no confirmation about an online version of ONE Esports Singapore.
While an online version is always possible, there are some issues to take into consideration, from time zones to which servers to use, and of course latency, which we've already seen caused top teams such as OG to stumble.
If you are looking for some Dota 2 esports action to watch right now, then the WePlay! Pushka League playoffs continue until 12th May.
