In addition to recruiting rosters, the partnership includes the creation of a bootcamp aimed at providing aspiring players with workshops and training programmes across a range of titles. According to a release, React Gaming Group and XP League plan on launching the academy in the first quarter of 2023.
Alongside the bootcamp, the Parabellum Academy will also feature a range of online courses, mentorship programmes and academy teams to run alongside the subsidiary’s existing Rainbow Six Siege, Rocket League and CS:GO rosters.
Parabellum Esports becomes the second esports organisation to partner with XP League, joining DarkZero Esports, which signed a deal with the franchise in October.
Following the acquisition of XP League by Unleashed Brands in April, the franchise has continued its expansion in recent months. In September, it partnered with coaching platform Next Level Esports and hired Justin ‘Jay’ Hairston as its Director of Special Programs.
