In the wake of Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, Tencent has decided to postpone its flagship Game for Peace global event, the PEC 2021 (Peace Elite Championship). The decision was made by Tencent to safeguard the health and safety of all participants as well as the audience.
This was the third season of the PEC, and as opposed to the previous two seasons, the PEC 2021 was scheduled take place in the middle of the year, on July 31st and August 1st. The tournament was set to take place at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai with a massive prize pool of 12 million Yuan (1.9 million USD). The event organizers have not yet announced a new date but will announce one soon.
Although PEC 2021 will not take place as scheduled, a local tournament named Peace Elite Super Cup and Airdrop Carnival (Peace Elite Super Cup 2021) will take place on the same date and at the same location.
