Wizards of the Coast updated the status of its in-store organized play in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, extending its suspension of in-store Magic: The Gathering events until January.

WotC had recently announced a continued suspension of in-store play through November 11 (see "Wizards of the Coast Extends Suspension of 'Magic: The Gathering' In-Store Play"), but now, it looks like they have their eye on Q1 2021. They had previously stated that the Commander Legends prereleases were going to be offered as remote events, but now, WotC has added the entire Kaldheim Season as offering only remote events. These remote events will be supported as before, and can be scheduled as of October 26 through EventLink.

WotC also mentioned that they will be updating the state of in-store play on the second Wednesday of every month. They will make an announcement on those dates regardless of whether or not they choose to take any action at that time.
