PUBG Global Series (PGS) Berlin 2020 was postponed just before the latter part of online qualifiers was supposed to happen. PUBG Corp cited Coronavirus as the issue that caused them to drop the event due to health concerns of the participants.

PGS 2020 closed qualifier for Europe West is the last of qualifiers, supposed 10 February 2020 but it might change while the main event will definitely not happen on scheduled date due to health concerns. 

PUBG Corp talked to the fans and players through an open letter on the official website, stating that "with the health and safety of [their] players, employees and fans as [their] top priorities, [PUBG Corp] made the difficult decision to postpone April's PGS: Berlin event".

PGS: Berlin in April was supposed to be where the cream of the crop would meet and duke it out but it will be moved to a later date where PUBG Corp will try to find a replacement event. Regional qualifiers' dates and times might also be a subject to change due to the unpredictable nature of Coronavirus which may or may not be stopped in the near future.

PUBG Corp also said they would not change the plan to host four PUBG global esports events in 2020 which is reassuring to those invested in the esports but there are currently no announcements for potential dates and times.

The reason for moving the entire schedule is Coronavirus, which was recently declared a global health emergency by World Health Organisation (WHO). PUBG Corp will adjust accordingly and notify the players as further updates on the outbreak and potential containment become available.
