In a Penny Arcade Report [as sited by GIBiz], DiGiovanni explained that MLG has previously consulted with publishers on existing games, highlighting qualities that would do well with e-sports shooters.

So with the ever-growing popularity of e-sports, the CEO believes that it is only a matter of time before MLG develops its own game.

“One day we will,” he claimed.

“We’ve had people approach us about it. Right now we want to focus on partners with games like PlanetSide 2 and help them broaden out and take advantage of what we’ve built. But we can also take advantage of their understanding of the game mechanics.

“We’ve done this with folks at Bungie, with folks at Activision, we’ve done it with lots of studios. We’ve done that enough times to have the understanding to take to our own title, eventually.”

Major League Gaming are currently the foremost e-sports organisation in the world.
