Riot Games has announced that it has entered into a partnership with the Dublin-based broadcast and production company, Gravity Media. The deal is said to revolve around Gravity Media helping to bolster and boost Riot's broadcast capabilities, all through its centre in Dublin.
As the press release states, we're told that Gravity will also be looking to provide further global support to Riot across all of its esports events, and will use Project Stryker (Riot's investment into global live production, which is powered by AWS) to power and lead its involvement.
"Gravity Media has some of the best talent across broadcasting, production, and technology that will certainly be a valuable asset in our ambitious live esports productions that continuously attract millions of viewers around the world," said Allyson Gormley, global operations director, Project Stryker at Riot Games.
This hub in Ireland provided by Gravity Media is the first of three hubs that will be placed around the world, all of which will aim to support League of Legends, Valorant, and Wild Rift esports scenes.
