After the cancellation of November’s Free Fire World Series (FFWS) last year, Garena announced the dates for when the next one will be. Now it looks like they're ready to reveal its location: Garena announced in a press release the official dates and location for the next iteration of the FFWS: it will be held in Sentosa, Singapore, and will take place from 14-21 May.

Featuring the best Free Fire teams from all across the world, we’ll be seeing teams from North America, Pakistan, Taiwan, Brazil, CIS, Indonesia, India, Latin America, MCP (Malaysia, Cambodia and Philippines), MENA, Thailand, Vietnam and Europe. The event will start with the play-ins on 14th May, with the top 2 teams moving on to the finals on 21st May. Each stage will consist of 6 rounds across 3 maps.

The regional events will be taking place throughout the next few months, with teams battling for a spot in the finals and play-ins. It’s going to be a bloodbath, and we can’t wait to see what happens. Will we see a repeat of last year’s finals or will it be the rise of a new team? Only one way to find out.

There’s no mention if the event will be open to the public, but Garena will be prioritizing health and safety over everything else, so fingers crossed if you’re looking forward to attending the FFWS in person.

We've got some unfortunate news to bring to you guys today - Garena has announced that the upcoming Free Fire World Series, scheduled to take place in November 2021, will be cancelled. Sad news for Free Fire fans around the world, but seeing how the COVID 19 situation is still out of hand in most countries, it's probably the safest decision to make. When you have games like Dota 2 and League of Legends making last-minute changes to their most-anticipated world championship events, you know that it was a difficult decision. On the bright side, we'll still have our online-only tournaments to look forward to.

Here's the announcement from Garena:

Garena will not be holding the next Free Fire World Series (FFWS) scheduled to take place in November 2021, in light of the evolving situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

The well-being of everyone involved in the FFWS was our top priority as we carefully considered all options. We made the difficult decision not to hold the event to continue safeguarding the health and safety of the Free Fire community.

The World Series stands as Free Fire’s largest and most exciting esports offline tournament. The growing safety concerns, however, have made it challenging to provide players and fans both an enjoyable yet safe offline esports experience.

We would like to thank all our players, fans, and partners for their continued support, and look forward to hosting all Free Fire players and fans safely in time to come.

There's no mention of whether the tournament will be rescheduled, but fingers crossed for a quick return. Let's hope for the pandemic to blow over soon so we can get back to having our international esports tournaments with no issues. In the meantime, do stay safe and stay home, there's plenty of entertainment available in the comfort of your own room to keep you occupied! As usual, follow eGG Network for more Free Fire news and updates.
