African Game Development, Esports 'Moving into Global Arena'
The Pro Series Gaming tournament held in Nairobi forms part of Liquid Telecom's five-year initiative to boost Africa's gaming industry.
"Gaming is emerging as an industry in Kenya and East Africa, now delivering growth of 25% a year or more, with African games and gamers moving into the global arena and the industry delivering globally over $100 billion of sales a year," said Ben Roberts, Chairman of Liquid Telecom Kenya and Group Chief Technology and Innovation Officer for Liquid Telecom.
"Liquid Telecom's journey in gaming began in Uganda, nearly five years ago, when we partnered with local gaming community GamersNights to provided data centre-hosted servers sophisticated enough to support regional gaming across international borders," said Ben.
"But now, the industry is reaching a take-off point in delivering a new generation of talent and games to the global gaming community, which we are working to support."
