Unveiled for the first time at the M Summit, a business summit for esports and gaming professionals, MOONTON Games 2023 esports roadmap, which details the publisher's major tournament programming, was released during the conference.
From February to April, the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional Leagues will be held consecutively from Singapore, Malaysia, Brazil, Indonesia, Philippines, Cambodia, and the Middle East. Other major professional tournaments hosted by MOONTON Games, including the Turkey National Championships, the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Super League (Regional League, LATAM), and the North America Challenger Tournament, will also be hosted during the same timeframe. Subsequently, the SEA Games 2023 and MSC 2023 will be hosted between May to June.
During the latter half of 2023, the World Cyber Games and Snapdragon Pro Series MLBB will be held in July, followed by the MPL and National Leagues running between August to October as qualifiers for the M5 World Championship. Prior to the international tournament commencing in December, the ONE Esports MPL Invitational 2023 will be hosted in November.
"Our tournament roadmap for 2023 is our most comprehensive yet, and we hope to introduce more third-party and nationally sanctioned tournaments this year," stated Ray Ng, Head of Esports Ecosystem Lead at the M Summit. "This is an exciting start for us in a jam-packed 2023, and we are open to working with grassroots-level organisers, to professional developers to provide equal opportunities for passionate esports professionals, fans, and players.
The roadmap was launched at the M Summit in Jakarta to bring together esports and gaming professionals to discover various aspects of the industry. The business-centric conference was created for local budding game developers and experts to discuss trends in Indonesia's mobile esports ecosystem, new commercial opportunities in the esports economy, and keys to building a successful tournament model.
