No more World Series of Video Games

The World Series of Video Games has been cancelled!! The World Series of Video Games ,one of many professional gaming circuits, has been cancelled by its parent company Games Media Properties. In a press release Games Media Properites states "The continuing challenges of securing adequate revenues to sustain the production of the WSVG's large scale events and television programming." The WSVG was in the process of securing television time for its events in Los Angeles, London, and Sweeden. The WSVG televised its summer event in Dallas earlier this year on CBS, but it was met with mixed reviews. With one of the key esports circuits now gone we can expect more coverage of other events such as The Championship Gaming Series, which has just announced the $500,000 team prize for the winning team at their world championship this upcoming November.
