Arc System Works has made the difficult decision to cancel the Arc World Tour 2020 in its entirety. Unfortunately, this is yet another cancellation that has arisen thanks to the COVID-19 global outbreak.

"Due to the global pandemic of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Arc System Works America, Inc. (Minoru Kidooka, CEO), has decided to cancel Arc World Tour 2020 in its entirety," stated the Arc System Works press release.

"The health of our competitors, staff members and community members is our top priority," continued the statement. "This decision also comes at the face of increased difficulty in facilitating a fair competition throughout the tour. We regret to inform those who have been eagerly anticipating this tour of its cancellation. We thank you for your understanding."

While the safety of participants is being prioritized, there are internal discussions about making ARCREVO Japan 2020 and ARC WORLD TOUR 2020 Finals independent events. We'll have to wait for further announcements for information regarding these two events.

Depending on what happens with the COVID-19 pandemic, future decisions may also impact future Arc World Tour events in 2021. Once again, it sounds like Arc System Works doesn't want to take any risks when it comes to people's health.

ARCREVO Korea 2020 and all Daredevil Events have been canceled as a result of this announcement. Although there might be independent online tournaments in its place, all events will no longer award world tour points.
