Capcom Cup 2021 Cancelled Due To COVID-19

Sad news for fighting game fans: Capcom has cancelled its upcoming offline fighting game tournament for 2021.

Capcom Cup 2021 will not be happening this February due to rising COVID-19 cases. Instead, an online finale will be held instead. Here’s the official statement:

“With rising cases of COVID-19 including the Omicron variant causing uncertainty and complications globally, Capcom once again finds itself in the difficult position of having to cancel CAPCOM CUP. The team did not come to this decision lightly, as we know what CAPCOM CUP means to the community and the players who trained so diligently to qualify. The entire esports team offers our sincerest apologies. Please know we share your frustration, as we wanted nothing more than to have this event return in a big way, but the health and safety of the players and everyone involved is our highest priority.

The CAPCOM CUP VIII event, which was scheduled to be held in the United States in February 2022, will be cancelled. However, as an alternative, Capcom will produce an online season final event featuring the players who have won the right to participate in CAPCOM CUP VIII. Stay tuned for more information.

The Street Fighter League: World Championship 2021, a competition between the top two teams from the Street Fighter League” Pro-US 2021 and Street Fighter League: Pro-JP 2021, was scheduled to be held in February 2022 during CAPCOM CUP VIII. The Street Fighter League: World Championship 2021 will also be cancelled.”

That sucks, but safety does come first, especially with the new COVID variant cases running amuck like a Blanka ball. Here are the Asian players who have qualified for this year’s Capcom Cup.

  • Infiltration
  • DingChunQiu
  • NL
  • Mago
  • Oswald
  • Daigo
  • Higuchi

We do know that Brazilian player Robinho will not be participating in all Capcom Pro Tour events (and possibly all fighting game tournaments) due to his alleged sexual assault claims he confessed to online during a fighting game Twitch stream.
