“As a gamer myself, I can genuinely say that the technology behind Tabwire is a game-changer for the industry as it provides the foundation for a new form of community allowing gamers to connect, interact, and compete in a trusting environment,” said Menashe Kestenbaum, the President of Enthusiast Gaming. “This acquisition represents the next big step in our mission to transform this industry even further and successfully deliver a game agnostic social network for gamers globally. I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome Tabwire’s founder and creator Nader Halim to the Enthusiast Gaming family.”
Enthusiast Gaming revealed plans to launch a subscription-based social network for gamers entitled Project GG. To ensure its development, Enthusiast signed the acquisition agreement with Tabwire.
