, | Games


Blizzard has purchased the IGN Pro League and will be bringing IPL staff onboard to bring web and mobile content in support of Blizzard games.

“This new team will help us to further develop the rich media experiences that extend the fun and engagement of our games online,” said Itzik Ben-Bassat, Blizzard’s executive vice president of publishing. “This is a team of passionate gamers with a proven track record, and we’re looking forward to now leveraging their expertise and technology to support a variety of online efforts.”

Blizzard had denied any intent to purchase the IPL after IGN announced that they would cancel the IPL 6 tournament that was previously scheduled for Mar 28th.
