DreamHack Dallas’ tournament featured battle royale title PLAYERUNKNOWN’s Battlegrounds while Atlanta’s game of choice switches to the ever-popular Fortnite when DreamHack descends upon the city in November.
In Dallas, teams of two signed up to compete in heats which took place on Friday and Saturday. Winning teams then advanced to the final round where the Chipotle Challenger Series Winner was crowned on Sunday. However, things will look slightly different in Atlanta.
Chipotle and esports:
This is far from Chipotle’s first foray into the world of esports. In 2017 the company made headlines as one of OpTic Gaming’s main sponsors and the Chipotle logo was on proud display when the organization’s Call of Duty roster took home the trophy at the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship.
In 2018 Chipotle became a title sponsor of Team SoloMid’s competitive Fortnite roster, specifically the TSM Fortnite house in California. This has led to various collaborations, including one of the world’s most recognized streamers, Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, creating his own burrito inside a Chipotle store.
The Chipotle Mexican Grill brand is now linking up with more esports royalty in the form of DreamHack – an esports tournament and convention organizer with roots that stretch back to the 1990s.
