Turtle Beach (NASDAQ: HEAR), the leading gaming headset and audio accessory brand, today announced a multi-year continuation of its partnership with top esports and gaming entertainment organization OpTic Gaming. The updated agreement will continue seeing Turtle Beach arming OpTic’s World Champion Call of Duty and Gears of War teams, and OpTic’s Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) team with its Elite Pro line of gaming headsets and additional gear, and now extends and includes OpTic’s DOTA 2 and PUBG squads. Additionally, other esports franchises under Infinite Esports & Entertainment – OpTic Gaming’s holding company, are also a significant part of this partnership expansion, with further details to be revealed over the coming weeks.
“The expansion of esports leagues, competitions, games, and athlete demands is constant, making our partnership with OpTic Gaming a key one. We’ve watched OpTic evolve from being one of the world’s best competitive Call of Duty teams into a multidimensional esports entertainment franchise, so we’re very excited to broaden our great relationship to grow with them,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation.
Stark continued: “We joined forces with OpTic Gaming in 2016 as we unveiled the original Elite Pro Tournament Gaming Headset, and their collaborative feedback has been pivotal to our success in the space. Not only has OpTic helped us refine and expand our marketing efforts, but they also help us develop, design, and enhance the audio supremacy only Turtle Beach can deliver, whether that’s from the highest levels of competition or from future esports pros picking up a controller for the first time.”
Ryan Musselman, SVP, Infinite Esports & Entertainment commented, “Throughout our long-standing partnership, Turtle Beach has supported us with unmatched excellence and products. Year over year, the team at Turtle Beach has inherently understood the definitive needs of our players, and as we expanded into new competitive titles, Turtle Beach was quick to ensure new players were welcomed with strong products and top tier service. We’re excited to continue teaming up with Turtle Beach in supporting our pro players, the Green Wall, and the expansive esports community.”
