You might think this is a golden opportunity for Esports to make massive gains. All you need is a games console and an internet connection, right? However, the truth is more complicated than that as even the Fortnite World Cup was a casualty of the current health crisis.
Set to take place in New York, organizers canceled the event as it just wasn’t possible in the current climate. With over three million dollars at stake, this was a major decision.
