PlayStation has announced that it intends to buy esports technology company Repeat.gg.
Repeat.gg focuses on hosting accessible esports tournaments in which players don’t have to be online at the same time to compete in, by tracking player’s performance in order to keep the leaderboard up to date.
With this method, Repeat.gg has hosted more than 100,000 tournaments involving 2.3 million players.
“At PlayStation, our vision for esports has always been about breaking down barriers for gamers to compete at all levels,” said vice president of global competitive gaming at Sony Steven Roberts.
“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 mroe updates with our community in the future.”
Aaron Fletcher, chief executive officer at Repeat.gg said “Repeat.gg was designed to enable new tournament formats that are easy to enter and scalable to millions of players. We’re thrilled to join the PlayStation team and work together to enhance the variety of tournament experiences gamers can enjoy, regardless of their skill level.”
