GameInside reporters talked to people close to organizing the championships and found out that there was a chance that the next The International could be held in the CIS region. In this case, the venue will be Moscow with a great chance, where, by the way, EPICENTER, one of the largest Dota 2 tournaments, is regularly held.
Recently, there was another rumor that The International 2020 will be held in Cologne, the city in which the TI series originated.
The editors of GameInside emphasized that the information was received from one source and the information received cannot be truly reliable. Nevertheless, if Valve wants to host The International in the CIS region, then for us this will not be a big surprise.
