Online video game events platform, Smash.gg, has announced it has entered an acquisition agreement with Microsoft.
The company, rooted in tools to host and support esports events, reportedly looks to join Redmond for an undisclosed sum, further bolstering its gaming presence alongside the Xbox brand.
Smash.gg announced the deal via its official website.
Headquartered in San Francisco, Smash.gg first started operations in 2015 as a platform for esports events around Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. fighting series. Its services have since expanded to other titles, although its name and presence remain closely tied to the fighting genre. Its suite of tools offers support to grassroots and professional organizers, handling management, payments, and analytics through an all-inclusive platform.
