The Free Fire World Series 2021 ( FFWS 2021 ), which was originally scheduled to be held in November, has been officially canceled due to concerns about COVID-19.
The Free Fire Esports team said the health and safety of everyone involved was a top priority. The decision to cancel the event was taken after considering all options to maintain the health of the Free Fire community.
“We aspire to be able to present a fun international offline esports tournament that remains safe for Survivors (as Free Fire players) around the world,” wrote the Free Fire Esports Indonesia team in an Instagram upload, Thursday.
“However, it is with a heavy heart that we announce that FFWS 2021 has had to be canceled in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation around the world,” reads a further statement.
FFWS 2021 was planned to be held in Mexico, but the North American country is currently in the midst of the third wave of the coronavirus pandemic, triggered by the Delta virus variant.
As of August 24, there were 21,250 new cases of COVID-19 in the country, according to Mexico’s health ministry.
Last year, FFWS was also canceled due to the pandemic before being replaced with the Free Fire Continental Series (FFCS), which is played online with three separate regions, EMEA, America and Asia.
A spokesperson for the Free Fire developer and publisher, Garena , told Dot Esports that in lieu of the World Series, there are “plans to hold various Free Fire esports events around the world this year.”
It looks like Garena wants to host smaller events around the world, but they won’t be as big as FFCS in 2020.
The Free Fire World Series, which is held twice a year, is the highest level of competition in the mobile game. Earlier this year, the FFWS was successfully held offline in Singapore featuring 18 teams from all over the world. The Thai team, Phoenix Force, took first place and the largest portion of the total prize pool of US$2 million (approximately Rp. 28.9 billion).
Meanwhile, Garena Indonesia is holding Free Fire Master League (FFML) Season IV, and will be followed by Free Fire Indonesia Masters (FFIM) 2021 Fall which will start in September.
“We hope that other Free Fire esports tournaments can continue to present competitive and sporty matches for all players,” wrote the Free Fire Esports team. [Between]
