Psyonix spenderar 22 miljoner kronor på esport

Psyonix har presenterat sina planer för esport framledes. Framför allt handlar det såklart om Rocket League:

"We believe that Rocket League is a game and esport where everyone can compete, everyone can progress, and everyone can enjoy. It was with that in mind that we started to evaluate the best way we could invest in esports with the funds earned through our community-funded 'Crates and Keys' pool."

We quickly realised that we needed to take a different approach when it came to our esports program, and while conventional wisdom normally dictates that we just drop additional loot on top of the existing RLCS prize pool, we wanted to do something more. A community-funded prize pool should benefit the ENTIRE community -- whether it means a group of friends competing over the weekend or the absolute best in the world vying for the RLCS World Championship."

Under 2017 ska de investera $2,5 miljoner (runt 22 miljoner kronor) i esportsatsningar på spelet, vilket inkluderar prispotter på över $1 miljon (runt nio miljoner kronor), större synlighet på spelfestsivaler, mer satsningar på event som Pax, hjälpa communityt med finansiering, turneringar till Xbox, en talk show för RLCS, en ny esporthub på hemsidan och mycket annat.

Trots omfattningen menar Psyonix att detta bara är början. Mer kommer. Tror du Rocket League har någon långvarig framtid på esportscenen?
