The 2021 Free Fire World Series, which was scheduled to take place this November, was recently canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. According to a spokesperson who talked to Dot Esports, the decision to cancel the event was made after Garena had considered all options for the “health of the Free Fire community.”
“The World Series stands as Free Fire’s largest and most exciting esports offline tournament,” Garena said. “The growing safety concerns, however, have made it challenging to provide players and fans both an enjoyable yet safe offline esports experience.”
This would have been the second major event hosted by Garena this year. The Free Fire World Series 2021 Singapore event was held from May 28th to May 30th. Phoneix Force beat LOUD to claim the tournament’s $2 million prize pool.
