Goldhaber discussed the launch in a release: “Esports has grown exponentially over the last decade, but there is still too much friction between becoming a fan of a game, player, or team, and being able to actually follow that esport, We built Juked as a single comprehensive destination with the goal of lowering the barrier to entry to enjoying esports. Our vision is to help every single esports community grow, since it will be a win-win for fans, developers, publishers, and the players who are invested in seeing their scene succeed.”
Here are the titles Juked has officially slated for launch over the next year: League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, Overwatch, Rocket League, Smash Bros. Ultimate & Melee, StarCraft II, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Hearthstone, Fortnite, Street Fighter V, Tekken 7, Mortal Kombat 11, World of Warcraft, Rainbow Six Siege, StarCraft: Brood War, FIFA, Apex Legends, Teamfight Tactics, Magic: The Gathering, and Quake Champions.
“We are excited to launch the open beta to the world today” Chan said in a press statement. “We look forward to Juked helping fans follow the esports they love more easily and to enjoy new esports content they may not have watched otherwise.”
