Traditionally, CEO — one of the biggest yearly fighting game tournaments — is known for taking place in June. However, the COVID-19 global pandemic is no doubt having an abnormal effect on routine in 2020.

Alex Jebailey, the tournament organizer behind CEO, has taken to Twitter and has explained his plans to hopefully reschedule CEO 2020 to December of this year instead of June.

According to Jebailey, 92% of those polled said that they would attend the yearly event if it is rescheduled to December. He's stated that he's currently working on the "paperwork and hotel stuff" in order to transition everything to later this year.

A more formal announcement regarding the move will take place this Friday. Supposedly, there will be details on the lineup changing with the announcement.

Jebailey has also mentioned that he's considering a schedule shift for CEOtaku this year too. This will likely be dependent on the state of the pandemic. As of right now, CEOtaku is scheduled to take place during the September 25-27 weekend.

Stay tuned for more information regarding details about registration and refunds. Of course, do keep in mind that things can be adjusted if the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic changes.
