As revealed by ESPN, IMTs would have made the best offer to purchase Infinite Esports, a company that controls Optic. In addition to the purchase price, estimated at between 35 and 45 million dollars, the Immortals will take on all the pending debts of Infinite against the various leagues.
The company that owns Optic and Houston Outlaws has so far poured about 8 million dollars out of a total of 13 million dollars into the pockets of the LCS, with the remaining 5 million.
Instead, 10 are paid to the Overwatch League, exactly half of those due in total. This included also the LCS slot and the return of the League of Legends in the maximum North American league in 2020 together with the Dignitas who had recently purchased the Clutch Gaming. Not, however, the Overwatch League slot.
The Immortals already own the Los Angeles Valiant property, which is why the Houston Outlaws will follow a separate sales process. However, the Optic brand will not disappear. It will continue to remain active on Call of Duty in the name of its history but under the aegis of the IMTs.
If the Immortals were able to get a slot in the new Call of Duty World League franchise, they would participate with the Optic name and logo.
