Online eSports publication Gamurs is set to merge with Dot eSports next week.
The Gamurs company purchased Dot eSports late last year, retaining much of the editorial staff and rebranding it slightly, however the two sites have remained totally separate until now.
On March 15th gamurs.com will start to redirect to Dot eSports. Much of the editorial staff will move from Gamurs to Dot eSports, while Gamurs social accounts will be rebranded to Dot eSports.
“GAMURS has published great work and we’re incredibly proud of everything it’s accomplished since 2016, including considerable month-over-month growth in readership,” said Riad Chikhani, GAMURS CEO. “GAMURS and Dot Esports have thriving, individual communities that will benefit from GAMURS’ reactive, live coverage and Dot Esports’ deep-diving insights that uncover the bigger story. We are thrilled at the possibilities and opportunity this provides the readership and GAMURS’ overall network initiatives.”
“2016 was the year GAMURS Group broke onto the international scene and took our place at the forefront of esports” Chikhani said. “Our goal for 2017 is to entirely change the way esports fans consume their content, bringing the news to the people who want it, rather than relying on them to seek it out. This merger will consolidate the best quality esports coverage in the world into the one hub, and our massive social reach will enable us to serve the stories that are resonating to a global audience.”
