Microsoft has acquired esports tournament and event organization platform Smash.gg for an undisclosed amount.
“With this acquisition, the http://Smash.gg community and tournament organizers will continue to benefit from the http://Smash.gg platform, while our team will now benefit from additional resources and support as part of the Microsoft Content Services team,” reads a tweet from Smash.gg.
An additional notice on the Smash.gg website adds that the platform will continue “as a self-service esports platform available to tournament organizers from all game communities.”
Smash.gg launched in 2015 as an esports tournament and event organization platform, including brackets set-up and registration support for both online and live events.
It has previously raised capital from investors such as Spark Capital, Accel, and Horizon Ventures.
