Mindfreak to launch a new Overwatch team in celebration.
Aussie Esports team Mindfreak has been acquired by Logitech G and Astro Gaming, the partnership today confirmed.
Logitech G acquired Astro Gaming earlier this year.
“We are really excited to see esports, gaming and streaming grow rapidly in ANZ. With major acquisitions like Astro, we can branch out and explore more styles of gaming, gaming genres and gameplay. Welcoming Mindfreak as apart of the Logitech G ANZ team, allows us to explore how we can excite fans and how we can help develop esports in ANZ,” Logitech G and Astro Gaming ANZ Category Manager, Daniel Hall, said.
Mindfreak will celebrate the acquisition with the launch of a new Overwatch team, joining existing teams in games like Heroes of the Storm and Call of Duty.
“With the success Overwatch has had internationally with the Overwatch League, the hype around the game continues to grow,” Mindfreak Esports owner and CEO, Albert Nassif, said. “Overwatch is no longer the new kid on the block in esports and has established a solid foundation and fanbase on which it will only continue to build and grow.
“As an organisation, Mindfreak has grown from strength to strength and with every new team we welcome to the family, we continue to support this. With our acquisition of the ‘Sandbaggers’ into the Overwatch roster we welcome a team that fought their way out of the Open Division, through Trials and into the Contenders.”
Congratulations to Mindfreak!
