They announced that the fans will get all the updates as soon as possible. At the time of writing this article, the prize pool for The International 10 event has reached $34,351,362. Thus making, T|10 officially the biggest prize pool event in the esports history. The International 10 will resume its event from next year.
Valve posted an update earlier this week stating, “In following how the pandemic has been developing globally, the recent increase in the unpredictability of COVID-19 count means we can’t yet commit to new dates for T|10 and the DPC. We share your eagerness and passion in returning to these events, and will announce updates as soon as we can.”
After T|10 postponed due the pandemic, there is no information that what will be the future of the International 11. If T|10 will not be conducted before next summer then there is a chance that players will not be able to get the Next year Battle Pass.
