Yahoo To Launch eSports Section
Yahoo is now the latest company to jump onto the eSports craze. The interest does not surprise many, as ESPN just recently aired footage from the X-Game’s Halo tournament on their main TV station. Following their own dive into the eSports scene, which they staffed with various eSports talent from over the years. While there is no indication that Yahoo has done the same, it is safe to assume that they will cherry pick whoever they feel they need from the ever growing pool.
From early reports it seems that they will focus on written and video content, much like they do with Football, Baseball, Hockey etc. This could be a major opportunity for them, as not many “known” news sites other than ESPN have eSports sections. We are hoping to hear more in the coming days, so stay tuned to us, and of course Yahoo.com for more info.
