Immortals Gaming Club announces the Infinite Esports & Entertainment buyout, parent company of OpTic Gaming, valued to more than $100M. With this buyout, IGC takes over two different brands: OpTic Gaming (League of Legends) and Los Angeles Valiant (Overwatch).
Immortals Gaming Club confirms in its press release that the LCS franchised team, OpTic Gaming will be renamed "Immortals" starting 2020 Spring Split. IGC states, however, that it will split with the CS:GO OpTic Gaming team, since the organization has already got an active team on the Valve game, with its Made in Brazil structure (MiBR).
In Overwatch League, the Houston Outlaws spot owned by OpTic Gaming will be managed by IGC while waiting for a buyout by someone else. The OpTic Call of Duty roster, worldwide-known for its performances on the Activision game, will remain.
The exciting story of Immortals in the League of Legends North-American league is reportedly one of the main reasons of the Infinite Esports buyout by the organization. When the 2017 franchises were announced, Immortals had failed to get a spot for its team in the new LCS league.
