Earlier this week, it was reported that the eSports tournament platform, Smash.gg, was acquired by Microsoft. The deal will be another attempt by Microsoft to grow its name within the eSports industry. In June of this year, Microsoft had already closed Mixer - a streaming portal - and entered into a partnership with Facebook Gaming itself to expand its reach, after the service did not meet Microsoft's expectations.

Smash.gg has been active since its launch in 2015. The platform, which includes several eSports competitions, such as Call of Duty and Super Smash Bros, has gained enormous notoriety within the gaming world.
