Belfast esports firm Gscience acquired by Canadian rival Adamas

Gscience specialised in providing sports science and data analytics for competitive gamers.

BELFAST esports performance company GScience has been acquired by Vancouver-based Adamas.

Founded in 2018, Gscience has grown to a team of ten based out of the Ormeau Baths.

It has emerged as one of the pioneering start-ups in the fast-growing world of esports, providing sports science and data analytics ‘to develop healthier, happier and more successful gamers'.

Adamas has not disclosed the value of the acquisition of its European competitor, but confirmed the Gscience leadership, staff and clients have been absorbed into the Canadian outfit's operations.

Gscience chief executive Ryan Scollan has been appointed Adamas' managing director for Europe.

“Esports orgs, gamers, and coaches are finally recognizing that out-of-game training is a matter of in-game performance,” he said.

“We've admired and competed against Adamas for years, and we're now thrilled to help elevate its already market-leading position across our native territory of Europe, and beyond.”

Adamas said the deal will see it acquire Gscience's entire tech stack and mobile application, bringing the Belfast company's elite, out-of-game performance training to amateur and professional gamers via a monthly subscription service.
