Over the last year, Skyesports has set a benchmark in the Indian esports industry. After a record-setting 2021, the esports company has pulled the curtains on the roadmap for the ongoing year. All of its major IPs are set to make a comeback along with a return to LAN events. The prize pools have also been significantly increased.
Besides this, Skyesports will also be working with game developers to host several first-party tournaments throughout the year. This association displays the faith of game developers in the company and its influence across India.
After expanding to South Asia in 2021, Skyesports will be setting its foot into even more regions this year. This doesn’t mean a reduction in competitions at the grassroots level, as they will continue in the same frequency as in the past. Stay tuned to the Skyesports Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter handles for more information.
Skyesports has always had a diversified portfolio of games that are included in its IPs. The company will be continuing this trend in 2022 and will organize tournaments for several games which include VALORANT, BGMI, League of Legends, Free Fire, Hearthstone, FIFA, Real Cricket, Supercell titles, and more. There will be something for every gamer by the Chennai-based company.
Shiva Nandy, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Skyesports said, “I would like to thank the community for putting their faith in us throughout the past year as over 280,000 gamers registered across different tournaments. We couldn’t be more excited to share the roadmap for 2022 as we look forward to another remarkable year for Skyesports. The stakes are getting significantly higher with prize pools being increased across the board and a return to LAN events. We will also be setting our foot into more regions as Skyesports continues to set a benchmark for the esports industry. “
