Late last month, Skyesports had surprised the entire Indian esports industry by introducing CS:GO and Dota 2 as part of the Skyesports Championship 4.0, announcing the two titles despite them not being too popular in the country.

Additionally, Shiva "Marvel" Nandy - CEO and Founder of Skyesports even went ahead to publicly share that the company will further invest a minimum of $500,000 USD (INR 4,08,57,750) in 2023 towards the upliftment of both these titles within India.
