Every year since the rise of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the battle royale genre’s been a stable of streamers everywhere. However, the transition to sustainable esport has yet to come for the genre. Fortnite and PUBG have seen some successful events but nothing’s shown staying power. Ubisoft is now throwing its hat into the BR realm with Hyper Scape, a futuristic battle royale set in a Parisian like city. While it’s not released yet, its technical test saw massive streaming numbers.

Battle Royales are notorious for being massive and hard to follow as an observer. So as people gear up for another major multiplayer release, Norris and Jacob discuss the game’s viability as a pro scene.
