Story Highlights

Under the ESL Gaming and FACEIT merger that occurred in early 2022, Esports Engine has flourished as a key cog within one of the largest esports ecosystems in the world. With production and broadcast operations for major esports competitions like Dreamhack, ESL Pro Tour, Intel Extreme Masters, and more, the esports outfit is excelling in new ways as the calendar flips to 2024.

At the 2023 SVG Esports Production Summit, Esports Engine's Co-Founder and Chief Production Officer Ryan Thompson explains what it's been like working on this monumental merger, the recent events and productions coming up, how remote workflows have become instrumental in their day-to-day operations, and why sustainability is an important initiative in the esports space.
