Sony Interactive Entertainment is acquiring Repeat.gg, an esports technology platform as its amibitions in the space continue to grow.
Repeat.gg is one of biggest esports tournament platforms in the world and it helps users compete for cash prizes across online games. Furthermore, it organizes asynchronous esports tournaments that allow players to compete in games even if they aren’t online at the same time.
The company can automatically keep track of players’ in-game statistics and will award them based on their performance. Repeat.gg shared the news in a blog, saying it has always focused on “Esports for Everyone” and doesn’t plan on stopping that mission anytime soon. So why did it agree to an acquisition?
“We will have access to more resources, game titles and technology, which will allow us to grow the team to push Repeat in directions that we had never thought would be possible,” Repeat.gg’s Jeff Shull wrote. “This will allow us to grow Repeat significantly over the next couple of years with plenty of new features, continuing our mission to become synonymous with esports by creating a home where everyone has a chance to compete and win.”
