Another North American eSports organization enters the mobile gaming space

Moving into the mobile gaming space

Wild Rift will be the Sentinels’ first entry into the mobile Esports arena, as the popularity of mobile games continues to rise in North America, with approximately 150 million Americans hopping onto mobile games in 2021. This will also be Sentinels’ second partnership with Riot Games in two years. The first was the foundation of their World Championship Valorant roster in April 2020. This is a great move by Sentinels, taking on the mobile gaming scene and growing in this space with the introduction of a possible championship team.

Sentinels’ past championships

Sentinels were launched in 2018 and so far has produced Esports teams for Fortnite, Valorant, Apex Legends, and Halo. There are some iconic gamers who are a part of this organization, including 2018 Fortnite World Champion Bugha, and ShahZam Khan, who led the reigning Valorant International Championship Team and the defending Halo World Champion Team. It will be interesting to see what talent this organization can produce in League of Legends, as Wild Rift will have a world champion by the end of the year.

Though Wild Rift is Sentinels’ first entry into mobile gaming, it is not the only North American Esports organization to establish a Wild Rift Esports team. Other Esports teams such as Cloud9, are currently looking for players. Tribe Gaming had already announced that it is going to enter Wild Rift. These teams look forward to the Wild Rift World Championship. This could also be one of the reasons why Sentinels chose to enter Wild Rift.
