Warner Bros. has just announced that Injustice 2, which isn’t even out yet, is going to have an eSports championship series with a total prize pool of $600,000. Registration is open now.
As a comparison, prize pools for big League of Legends or DoTA tournaments can exceed several million. For the uninitiated, when we say ‘total prize pool’ it doesn’t mean that the top prize is $600,000, but that all the prizes accoss the different series’ add up to that.
The Liga Latina series, for Latin America, has a pool of $5k; Path to Pro, for European fans who can’t participate in the full pro series, has one of $20k; the Gamestop Hometown Heroes does the same for US players, with a pool of $5k; finally the Injustice 2 Pro Series 2017 scoops up $300,000+. All four brackets are presented by PS4, and feed into the Grand Finals to take place in Autumn.
