X1 Esports has signed an agreement to acquire Rocket League Community, Octane.GG.

Mark Elfenbein, CEO of X1, sat down with Daniella Atkinson to discuss the news.

“Adding Octane to the X1 portfolio will significantly strengthen our position within the Rocket League ecosystem. Through strategically combining Octane’s community-facing assets with those of our recently announced acquisition, ShiftRLE, we believe we can fill and capitalize on a highly valuable void for a Rocket League media destination.”

Octane is the leading Rocket League Esports statistics platform providing in-depth match statistics across the top events in the space. As the primary source of statistics for Rocket League, Octane has amassed a valuable trove of data on the history and evolution of players and teams from their rookie days to playing on the world stage. 

“I built Octane as a college student back in 2017 to fill a void I saw as a Rocket League Esports fan. It’s incredible to see how much the space has evolved since then, and I’m excited that Octane will have a new home with X1 to further this valuable resource,” said Kartik Patel, founder of Octane.

The company anticipates utilizing Octane’s Rocket League statistics database in launching future offerings, such as a possible Rocket League fantasy product.

Rocket League is one of the world’s most popular PC games. Octane.GG is an online fan statistics platform focused on the popular video game Rocket League.

X1 Esports and Entertainment is a video game and media portfolio company which owns and operates a growing esports franchise, RixGG.

X1 Esports and Entertainment Ltd. (XONE) opened trading at C$0.415 per share.
