Repeat.gg hosts leaderboard tournaments and tracks player performance, allowing them to participate in competitions without having to be online at the same time. It has hosted over 100,000 tournaments with over 2.3 million participants.
“At PlayStation, our vision for esports has always been about breaking down barriers for gamers to compete at all levels,” Sony Interactive Entertainment vice president of global competitive gaming Steven Roberts told GamesIndustry.biz.
“Together with the talented Repeat.gg team, we’re excited to explore more ways for players to engage in competitive gaming and expand the breadth of our esports offerings. This is just the start of our journey and we look forward to sharing more updates with our community in the future.”
Repeat.gg CEO Aaron Fletcher added, “Repeat.gg was designed to enable new tournament formats that are easy to enter and scalable to millions of players. We’re thrilled to join the PlayStation team and work together to enhance the variety of tournament experiences gamers can enjoy, regardless of their skill level.”
Repeat.gg will continue to feature games on platforms outside of the PlayStation ecosystem, including other consoles, PC, and mobile.
Sony Interactive Entertainment is also the co-owner of the Evolution Championship Series fighting game tournament, and regularly hosts PlayStation Tournaments for various fighting games.
