Bravado Gaming – one of South Africa’s best known MGOs – has announced the addition of a new division to their ranks.
Bravado Gaming has added console esports to their 2017 roster, taking them into “uncharted territories”. The move sees one of South Africa’s most successful Call of Duty teams in Astra Infinite become a member of the Bravado Gaming family that has previously featured successful Call of Duty teams on PC.
While Bravado Gaming continues its search for a new Dota 2 team, the addition of Astra Infinite marks an exciting and interesting future for the MGO. The opportunities for the brand to feature across multiple platforms should help cement the future of both the organisation and the respective titles they associate with.
The Astra team has had plenty of success since establishing in 2013, with 2016 being a particularly good year when the team won the ASTRO Gaming Cup at rAge Cape Town. Astra Infinite captain Dillon “Lithium” Charalambous played under the Energy eSports banner at the Call of Duty World League affiliated MAG Cup at rAge JHB, which they went on to win. This, alongside numerous other top four placings and a sterling record in previous years seems to have made the Astra Infinite team the right choice for Bravado Gaming.
I’m excited that Bravado Gaming has ventured into the local console market. I think we’ve found the perfect combination of players who are motivated, dedicated and willing to take their e-sports careers to the next level. This initiative has been one we’ve been looking at for the last couple of years, but finally, now that we’ve acquired additional human and financial resources, we’re ready to implement! – Andreas ‘cent’ Hadjipaschali, CEO and Owner of Bravado Gaming (PTY) LTD
It now remains to be seen how the team performs in the current Infinite Warfare season on PlayStation 4 which is about to really hit its stride in South Africa.
