A CS:GO insider on Twitter who goes by the name of ‘polish leaks’ gave some information on the next CS:GO Major. He stated the following in his tweet,
“Perfect World (+PGL) to host autumn Major. Originally they planned China as a location, but due to 2019-nCoV there's a probability of moving it to a different country and even changing the host to BLAST, which for now is in advanced talks about covering the first Major in 2021.”
If the tweet is to be believed, it is quite possible that PGL was offered the gig of hosting the Majors, they have the experience and the capability to host one, with the last Major hosted by them being PGL Major Krakow 2017 which till date is considered to be one of the best Major’s.
They would, of course, have to host it along with Perfect World as the event was to be held in China, but because of the spread of the deadly Coronavirus, it seems that the Major might be seeing a move from its speculated location, along with its host being changed from PGL to BLAST.
This tweet cannot be taken as concrete proof and has to be treated as mere speculation because the source is not certified and due to their being a lack of proper evidence.
The second major of 2020 which generally takes place during the months of September - November will be very much a part of the ESL Pro Tour. With the first Major set to take place in Rio, there are rumours that the second might be held in Europe.
