Microsoft buys online video game events platform Smash.gg


On the other hand, Smash.gg considers this event an opportunity to expand on their business objectives.

Today we’re excited to take the next step in that journey by joining Microsoft to help strengthen our existing relationships and explore new opportunities. Smash.gg will continue as a self-service esports platform available to tournament organizers from all game communities.

What is the future of Smash.gg’s online game tournaments?

Founded in 2015, Smash.gg offers tools for online game tournaments via an all-inclusive platform that handles registrations, payments and rankings. It addresses both amateur and professional organizers.

Initially, these events were organized around games in the Super Smash Bros series, but as the community expanded, the platform has been hosting tournaments for other games as well, mostly combat ones.

Therefore, it is likely that Smash.gg will collaborate with Microsoft for similar tournaments for some of the latter’s most popular Xbox games, such a Mortal Kombat or Injustice.

For now, the esports platform mentioned that the ongoing tournament will not be affected by the recent move.
