Dot Esports parent company, the Australian esports media network GAMURS Group, announced that it has acquired gaming guides platform Pro Game Guides. The group’s CEO Riad Chikhani revealed that the acquisition was financed by GAMURS’ existing investors, including Aura Group.
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
Pro Game Guides, which was launched in 2018 and generated almost 22M views last month according to the site’s statement, will be integrated into the GAMURS portfolio, which “saw explosions in readership,” said Chikhani, who also explained that the group’s revenues grew over the last 11 months despite declines in ad rates during the COVID-19 pandemic.
GAMURS is looking to make further acquisitions in the gaming space in the coming year to expand its portfolio of currently six brands.
