SPYR, INC., a holding company with a wholly owned subsidiary in the mobile game and app development and publishing industry, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with the Unitas Gaming esports organization to engage in weekly live streams of Pocket Starships gameplay to its fanbase.
The Unitas Gaming eSports team is a championship team made up of players from all over Latin America (unitas.gg). They are the current World of Warcraft Latin American champions and competed in the World of Warcraft World Championships at BlizzCon 2017. SPYR recently began sponsoring Unitas and now Unitas will live stream competitive Pocket Starships play to its fans on a regular basis.
Two teams of 3 Unitas players will soon start to livestream Pocket Starships, including 3v3 scrimmage play. The Unitas partnership will create some exciting content and matches, with the teams live streaming at least four days per week for three-hour periods, over the next year.
SPYR’s Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, Mike Turner, stated, “We have had a great relationship with Unitas, including sponsoring them at the World of Warcraft World Championships at Blizzcon. They are a growing force in the esports scene, and as we continue to forge our own path towards being a competitor in the esports industry with our flagship game, Pocket Starships, we are looking forward to their contribution to the Pocket Starships community as they start to stream on a regular basis. It’s great to see passionate players, doing what they love, and sharing it with an active online community. We are looking forward to working with Unitas over the next year to engage our competitive fan base, and continually deliver what our players need to succeed in esports.”
Unitas Gaming Founding Partner and CEO, Raúl Max Villacorta, stated, “We are very pleased to be joining forces with SPYR. We are looking forward to sharing our esports knowledge and promoting this movement that has been booming in the past few years. Our main focus is the gaming community and making sure every region is considered and represented in the global esports scene. SPYR’s current and future games will help bring this vision to life.”
