Det er nu blevet officielt annonceret, at Savvy Gaming Group, en gruppe der får sin primære støtte fra den Saudi-Arabiske Public Investment Fund, står til at købe hele ESL Gaming og FACEIT for en samlet pris på $1.5 milliarder. Selve aftalen betyder at de to tilsammen bliver "the ultimate platform for competitive gaming". De har endnu ikke fået handlen godkend, men det forventes at ske i løbet af årets andet kvartal.

I en pressemeddelelse sendt til Gamereactor fremgår det, at ESL's infrastruktur skal kombineres med FACEIT's "best-in-class tools for competitive games" om at skabe et slags esportskonglomerat:

"Our mission remains unchanged: to create a world where everybody can be somebody. Our merger with FACEIT, along with the backing of SGG, will give us more know-how, capabilities, and resources than ever before to deliver on this vision. Whether you are competing or watching, doing so socially or at a professional level, every stage of the pathway will be improved through this merger. For gamers, publishers, and partners, this is a hugely exciting proposition, to be able to take everyone on the journey from your first step into competition to playing on the biggest esports stages globally," siger Craig Levine, ESL's CEO.
