Akshon Media has been appointed as the Official Content Production Partner for the 2023 seasons of Overwatch League and Call of Duty League.
This expansion of the Vancouver startup’s responsibilities reflects an exceptional track record in producing and delivering content for global esports leagues.
With a focus on broadcast production support, graphic design, and the production of various video content series, Akshon is set to enhance the viewers’ experience and raise the bar for esports content creation, according to a recent statement from the company.
“The renewed mandate is a testament to the performance and efforts that Akshon has put into the 2022 season,” stated Roger Chan, chief executive. “We’re grateful for Activision Blizzard’s trust in our ability, and we’re excited to continue working with them to produce high quality videos for the new season.”
Akshon Media has established itself as a multi-disciplinary digital media company that produces video content and provides writing services for clients and brands.
The company has collaborated with esteemed brands such as Red Bull and Vancouver-based interior design firm Ark & Mason. Akshon also runs a YouTube channel offering game analysis and esports news that has attracted over 300,000 subscribers and amassed 124 million total video views.
“In addition to a proven track record of adding immense value through consistent quality content production, Akshon has also demonstrated a work ethic deeply rooted in the spirit of partnership, often going above and beyond to support our internal teams,” stated Nik Visger, Senior Director of Broadcast at Activision Blizzard. “Expanding our partnership this year to include more mandates for both the Overwatch League and Call of Duty League was a no-brainer.”
The Call of Duty League features 12 city-based teams across four countries and boasts the participation of the best esports players from around the globe. Launched in 2020, the league’s viewership reached new heights during the 2022 season, with the CDL 2022 Champs playoffs attracting 275,000 peak viewers, according to Esports Charts.
On the other hand, the Overwatch League stands as the first major global professional esports league to adopt a city-based team structure, spanning Asia, Europe, and North America. Blizzard’s iconic franchises have not only laid the foundations of professional esports but also pushed the boundaries of the industry.
Akshon Media was founded in Vancouver in 2016 with offices in Los Angeles and Seoul in South Korea.
