Ubisoft has announced that the Rainbow Six Pro League Season XI Final, as well as the APAC Finals LAN event, has been cancelled. Their full statement has been provided as follows:
The health and well-being of our teams, developers, players and partners is our first priority. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel May’s Rainbow Six Siege Pro League Season XI Finals in Sao Paulo, Brazil, as well as the APAC Finals LAN event through which the teams from the Asia-Pacific region would have qualified for the Season XI Finals. The associated prize pool of the Pro League Season XI Finals and APAC Finals will be redistributed across the top teams of each region. While we’re obviously disappointed that these events won’t be going ahead, we are excited for the continued growth of Rainbow Six esports and look forward to sharing more on our plans for 2020 and beyond soon.
The full details are provided on the official news post. At risk of sounding like a broken record, the cancelled Rainbow Six pro league events join the growing pile of events affected by the ongoing coronavirus scare. As it were, the plans to go ahead with regionalized Rainbow Six events remains, and the situation will be monitored and will be adjusted accordingly.
