Who We Are

As fans of Esports, we have envisioned virtual stadiums and a 3D viewing experience from the moment consumer Virtual Reality (VR) arrived. With the Virtex Stadium application launching in 2021, we make that dream a reality allowing Esports fans to view gameplay live, in 3D in the center of a virtual stadium. Something that's not been possible before in any other medium. Partnering with publishers and organisers, we are working towards providing a virtual stadium experience for all the top Esports games.

Virtex Entertainment is headquartered in London, UK with fully remote team members in various European countries.

Vision & Mission

We want to contribute and make VR an exciting place, because we believe it is the future of gaming and entertainment. Creating a VR experience for Esports feels like a perfect fit, because all of our favourite games are already 3D, whether they are a PC, console or a mobile game.

So far we have just been playing and viewing games through 2D screens. Imagine you could only ever watch a football match on TV and never live in front of you in a real stadium?

We want fans to experience the intense excitement and joy only a live event with with a crowd can provide. VR is the ideal platform to deliver this wherever and whenever but we wouldn't be doing it any justice if we stopped there. In fact, this is where our mission starts as a virtual stadium allows us to create previously impossible experiences and opens up completely new territory with endless creative opportunities.

With everything we do, we aim to bring fans closer to the shows, games and teams that they love.
