Riot Games has opened a 50,000sqft remote broadcast centre in Dublin, Ireland, as the first part of the company’s Project Stryker, and its European Headquarters.
The Dublin HQ will serve as a central broadcasting hub for regional and global live esports productions across the three Riot titles – League of Legends Esports, Valorant Esports and Wild Rift Esports.
Broadcast feeds from live esports competitions happening around the world can be sent to the Dublin centre where content is produced, broadcast and distributed in multiple languages to millions of esports fans around the world.
The additional remote broadcast centres that make up Project Stryker will be based eight hours apart to allow for 24/7 production, with one in Seattle, and another in the Asia-Pacific region.
John Needham, President of Esports at Riot Games, says: “Project Stryker has come a long way from a visionary concept three years in the making, to this incredible state-of-the-art creative space, complete with a disco ball, that further extends Riot’s footprint in the city and showcases the deep ties to entertainment and innovation found in Dublin. We could not have selected a better location for our European headquarters for Project Stryker.”
