According to a report from esports journalist Rod Breslau and confirmed by Bloomberg, ESPN has quietly delayed a broadcast of an “Apex Legends” tournament previously scheduled for Aug. 10 in response to the mass shootings.

The taped segments will now be aired months later across Oct. 6, 15 and 27 according to a source, which also confirmed the decision was made out of respect for the shooting victims and anyone else who was impacted.

The tournament will still be available on ESPN’s digital channels and app this weekend, though it appears the tournament will no longer be aired on ABC, which had been reportedly planned.
