Atlanta Esports Ventures announces Atlanta Reign headquarters
On Thursday, Georgia Governor Brian P. Kemp announced that Atlanta Esports Ventures has found a new home for the Atlanta Reign esports team.

Though no location has been determined for the new facility, the new headquarters is said to be in the proximity of a 13,000 square foot commercial property in West Midtown Atlanta and will be under the same name as Overwatch League team Atlanta Reign.

Atlanta Esports Ventures also recently announced Atlanta FaZe, a new Call of Duty League co-owned by FaZe Clan, signaling another leap in the right direction for esports in the Atlanta community. This is also an exciting time for Atlanta Reign, as they also announced the signing of Overwatch standout SharP to the team’s Overwatch League.

Atlanta also recently hosted Hi-Rez Expo and announced the newly formed Atlanta Esports Alliance, a new collaborative effort between hardware manufacturers, game developers, media partners, and professional team owners to bring new opportunities for teams, tournaments, venues, and esports service providers and partners to the Atlanta area.

This year’s DreamHack Atlanta also brought in more than 35,000 attendees to the three-day gaming event.

Atlanta is quickly becoming a major esports hub in the US and an announcement like this coming from the governor clearly indicates the city’s interest in being a part of this project.

Overall, the city has been widely supportive and receiving of the esports community and gestures like this can only be a positive sign for the rest of the gaming community. Atlanta’s gaming scene has grown significantly this past year and with the thriving development in the esports community as a whole, it’s only a matter of time before other cities catch on.
