The news fell on Friday January 15: the Capcom Cup is finally canceled. This is hard news for pro-players to take since Capcom had already postponed the event to 2020 for the same health reasons. But with the resurgence of the epidemic hitting the world, the Japanese publisher prefers not to take risks despite the security protocols that were in place. We remind you that the Capcom Tour was to take place from February 19 to 21, 2021 in the Dominican Republic and it is therefore finally online that the tournament will take place, but without the professional players.
Due to the rising cases of COVID-19 worldwide we have made the difficult decision to cancel #CapcomCup. In its place we will be producing an online season final for #CapcomProTour February 20th and 21st. Details following: pic.twitter.com/3WsObiSFVA
