DreamHack Atlanta has been postponed due to concern surrounding COVID-19 and the spread of the Delta variant of the virus.

The in-person event was slated to be contested from Nov. 12-14. The event will be postponed to next year, with DreamHack expected to announce the specific date on Dec. 9.

“All of us at DreamHack stay committed to providing our fans and followers with great experiences, even if it needs to continue in an alternate format for now,” said Bas Bruinekool, vice president of festivals at DreamHack.

“We know this decision is heartbreaking, but these are extraordinary times all over the world. The safety and health of everyone involved has never been more important to us than now.”

Atlanta was scheduled to be the first in-person DreamHack event since Anaheim in February 2020.
