The Skyesports Mobile Open adds to a growing list of IPs by the company. This includes the Skyesports Championship, Skyesports Grand Slam, Skyesports League, Skyesports Gaming Series, and more. 

More details about the tournament will be revealed soon. Mobile gamers are a huge audience for Skyesports and the ongoing AMD Ryzen Skyesports Championship 3.0 is indicative of that. The BGMI Grand Finals in the championship, where 18 of India’s best teams are competing, has achieved a peak viewership of over 223,000 viewers across all streams. 

“With such viewership numbers, launching the Skyesports Mobile Open was a no-brainer for us,” added Nandy.
