In addition to roster recruitment, the partnership includes the establishment of a boot camp aimed at offering up-and-coming players workshops and training programs across a range of titles. According to a press release, React Gaming Group and XP League plan to launch the academy in the first quarter of 2023.
In addition to the boot camp, Parabellum Academy will also offer a range of online courses, mentoring programs and academy teams that will run alongside existing rosters from its subsidiary Rainbow Six Siege, Rocket League and CS:GO.
Parabellum Esports becomes the second esports organization to partner with XP League, joining DarkZero Esports, which signed a deal with the franchise in October.
Following Unleashed Brands’ acquisition of XP League in April, the franchise has continued to expand in recent months. In September, it partnered with coaching platform Next Level Esports and hired Justin “Jay” Hairston as Director of Special Programs.
