The year didn’t start all that well for Ubisoft after the stock market plunged 20%. Nonetheless, the French publisher seems intent on bet a lot on the Brawlhalla esports ecosystemso much so that this year there will be four online championships, three LAN events and a total prize pool of $1 million.
These data for Blue Mammoth Games’ free-to-play 2D platform fighting game have been confirmed in the last few hours by the same company on the official website in order to illustrate the Brawlhalla Esports Year Eight novità, starting with the first championship, the Winter Championship. This will be held on February 3, 2023, for both singles and duo teams, and will have a prize pool of $100,000.
There will also be Spring Championship, Summer Championship and Autumn Championship, respectively in March, July/August and September. After each season championship, the best players from North America, South America and Europe will compete in offline “Seasonal Royales” in Atlanta, Georgia.
Ubisoft also announced that the Brawlhalla World Championship (BCX) will take place in November 2023. Last year, the event took place from the 4th to the 6th of the month. BCX 2023 will remain an open entry tournament, meaning anyone will be able to register to compete in its singles and doubles tournaments. Brawlhalla’s overall prize pool is actually lower than that of 2022, with Ubisoft announcing that $1.32 million would be awarded for the seventh year. The decline is therefore felt, but the figure is still quite high given the current circumstances.
Still speaking of the same company, apparently the launch date of Assassin’s Creed Mirage has been leaked.
