TSM expected to enter Indian Free Fire scene 


The Indian Esports scene has been rocked by the Free Fire phenomenon in the past year. While the Free Fire Continental Series Asia 2020 attracted 1.5 million peak viewers on a Hindi stream, the Free Fire World Series 2021 broke all records and drew 1.9 million peak viewers (which is the highest ever for any single stream/language) on Hindi stream. The domestic tournament Free Fire India Championship 2021 also saw more than 220K Peak Viewers. These numbers have attracted a lot of attention in the west.

Andy Dinh, CEO of TSM, tweeted a few days ago that Mobile Esports will have more viewers than PC within 5 years.

Ryan Wyatt, Head of YouTube Gaming, replied that in some cases they already do, mentioning India's name, Andy responded to this by stating that he will definitely explore possibilities.
