Splitgate Pro Series 2022 Winter Season: What you need to know
The 2022 Splitgate Pro Series will kick-off between the 5-6th February with a mouthwatering weekend of doubleheaders to start the winter season.
The games will be streamed live on the title's official Twitch channel.
The Splitgate Pro Series will comprise three competitions, divided according to the results of the first Splitgate esports tournaments: the regular season of the Pro Series, the promotion phase of the Challengers Series, and the season's final events.
Splitgate Pro Series: Format
The regular season of the professional series will last from 1 to 2 months. Seven days will be dedicated to the Round Robin stage to determine the participants and seeding for the quarterly tournaments at the end of the season and the relegation phase.
The new season will be developed with the help of Logitech Esports Services, a branch of Logitech focused on creating custom tournaments for customers.
Ian Proulx, the co-founder of 1047 Games, commented on the partnership, saying, "Our first season of professional competition was a huge success thanks to the talented team at Logitech."
