In other news, much has been said in the past about the possibility of Esports being part of competitions such as the Olympic Games. While it is actually still missing from the main Olympics event, we can soon have a taste of how it would be. The International Olympic Committee allied with tech giants Intel to prepare Rocket League and Street Fighter V tournaments.
These are competitions that will take place before the initial Olympics event. According to information from Esports Observer, this competition will be called the Intel World Open and will be made in collaboration with Psyonix and Capcom, responsible for Rocket League and Street Fighter V, respectively.
They will hold both of these tournaments from July 22 to July 24, 2020 at the Zepp DiverCity, a venue located in Tokyo, Japan. Each of them will offer a great prize pool for $250,000.
I remind you that Psyonix’s Rocket League released on July 7, 2015 for PlayStation 4 and PC. It also released on February 17, 2016 for the Xbox One and on November 14, 2017 for the Nintendo Switch.
