The Asphalt Franchise – A Roadmap To eSports

The Future of Asphalt – Sourced From Gameloft’s Presentation of 2016

Asphalt as a franchise has been one of Gameloft’s most successful yet. In fact, it is the most recognizable franchise when it comes to the racing genre on mobile. Recently, we announced Asphalt Xtreme and mentioned Asphalt 9: Shockwave but there is much more to the story. Back in March when a Gameloft document was made public, it envisaged the future of the Asphalt franchise in becoming eSports friendly.

This makes a lot of sense considering that the games of this gorgeous series are competitive and can be the first in the racing genre to ride the eSports road. The question we pose right now is which title will be the first to lead towards the competitive world? There are three titles that can potentially be eSports friendly: Asphalt Xtreme, Asphalt 9: Shockwave, and Asphalt StreetStorm.

Asphalt Xtreme is expected to be released this year while Asphalt 9: Shockwave has been set for the 2nd quarter of 2017. Unfortunately, Asphalt StreetStorm remains a mystery. However, the future of the Asphalt brand holds a lot of competition and those of you who have been waiting for eSports to come to the racing genre may not have to wait that long.
