Riot Signs $300 million internet broadcasting deal for ‘League of Legends,’ Soylent powder goes back on sale just in time for Christmas, and Activision’s Call of Duty tops sales charts.
Riot Games signed a $300 million internet broadcasting deal with BamTech for online streaming rights to “League of Legends” tournaments, reports Variety. The deal goes through 2023 and gives BamTech exclusive rights to distribute and develop “League of Legends” e-sports tournaments, as well as sell ads and sponsorships.
After recalling a bad batch of its powder due to reported instances of consumers becoming sick, Soylent has put its meal replacement powder back up for sale, reports TechCrunch. Soylent reformulated the powder to remove what it believed to be the problem ingredient, algal flour.
Activision’s first-person shooter video game “Call of Duty” was the number one selling video game in the world this year, reports Forbes. Despite topping the charts, the game’s sales were down from last year, which has caused investment bank Stifel Financial Corp. to lower its revenue forecast for the company.
