With eSports continuing to grow heavily in popularity on all fronts streaming, television and live tournaments it shouldn’t be a surprise that new ventures are getting introduced. Now, the world should prepare itself for the Immortals.

The new eSports organization was introduced earlier this week, with a number of media, gaming and tech investors announcing the acquisition and rebranding of Team 8 eSports. As a result, it’s set to shake up the eSports team, especially with placement in the North American League of Legends Championship Series, which is watched by millions of fans around the world.

The CEO of Immortals, Noah Whinston, talked about what the organization has in mind for success. “Immortals is starting with a League of Legends team, but expect to see us expanding rapidly into other top eSports like Counter-Strike and DOTA 2. We recognize that the best way to grow the Immortals franchise is to work in conjunction with other team owners across every title to help the entire eSports ecosystem expand in a healthy way. We look forward to industry-wide conversations about sustainable business practices, competitive regulation, and player treatment and representation.”

The organization has a number of reputable investors, including president of Lionsgate Interactive Ventures and Games, Peter Levin; co-owner and Chairman of the Memphis Grizzlies, Steve Kaplan; and Machine Shop Ventures, which works in conjunction with popular rock band Linkin Park. AMD will also play a major part with Immortals, as its marketing and technology partner.

“eSports and its legions of fans are a key audience for AMD, which makes our partnership with Immortals both important and exciting,” said Roy Talor, corporate vice president of Alliances and Content for Radeon Technologies Group, AMD, regarding the partnership. “As a leading designer of graphics processing units and essential technologies for eSports gamers of all levels, we are looking forward to future endeavors with the Immortals franchise.”

The roster for Immortals hasn’t been shaped up yet, but it’s expected to be released in the near future, in time for future League of Legends tournaments and other eSports events.
