A Brief History of Esports [Infographic]

Brief History of Esports
   The gaming industry has blossomed over the past few years into a multi-million dollar business empire. This has a lot to do with eSports which has attracted fans, players and multinational sponsors to the business. But many will remember that this was not always the case.

Initially, the idea of pro gaming tournaments seemed absurd. How could you create a professional tournament with video games and expect it to be taken seriously? However, this question has been answered by prizes worth millions, thousands of live spectators and millions of online ones and brilliant online multiplayer games.

Take League of Legends Tournament for example. In 2016 it was broadcasted live in 18 languages and generated 396 million unique impressions online!

Games like Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, DOTA, League of Legends and many others are now being played on local area network (LAN) and online without any tournaments. So whenever an official tournament takes place, the fans and gamers themselves are very much interested in seeing professional players showcasing their expertise and techniques in front of millions of viewers.

In 2015, eSports globally was able to earn US$325 million in revenue and increased it to more than $500 million in 2016. And now in 2017, it is expected to even go further. Learn more about it here in this infographic created by the good people at Computer Planet:
