PlayStation is officially acquiring the eSports giant, Repeat.gg, signaling the company’s continued interest in the eSports industry.
Repeat.gg is a gaming company that specializes in hosting leaderboard tournaments and making them accessible to all players. The company essentially tracks all players and how they are performing in competitive games.
It also allows players to participate in esports competitions without requiring them to be online and connected to the website. So far, the company has hosted more than 100,000 online tournaments with over 2.3 million playing participants.
“Together with the talented Repeat.gg team, we’re excited to explore more ways for players to engage in competitive gaming and expand the breadth of our esports offerings. This is just the start of our journey and we look forward to sharing more updates with our community in the future.” said Steven Roberts, vice president of global competitive gaming at Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Roberts has also elaborated on the acquisition saying that PlayStation’s vision has always been about enabling gamers to compete at all levels.
On the other hand, Repeat.gg CEO, Aaron Fletcher, has expressed his enthusiasm about this opportunity and how it could ultimately lead to enhancing the variety of tournaments that players will be able to enjoy regardless of how skillful they are at gaming.
