NME is saying that a recent job posting by Bungie Inc. indicates the company may be “looking to create an esports-focused competitive multiplayer title.” This comes after DestinyNews+ noted the job description asks candidates have “strong familiarity with global gaming markets and the competitive gaming/esports landscape”.
Bungie launched its second annual “Guardian Games” event on April 20th. Classes will face off against each other to showcase the gaming combat skills.
Bungie Inc. is a video game company based in Washington that was founded in 1991. Its most famous product is the Destiny video game franchise.
The Profit‘s Take:
I am always slightly skeptical when developers set out to make games specifically for esports. It’s probably a better strategy to set out to make just a great game.
