We’ve seen a massive uptick in games billing themselves as eSports titles in recent years. League of Legends, World of Tanks, and Warface have been some new faces on the scene, while classic eSports titles like Street Fighter and Halo have taken steps to facilitate better competitive gaming experiences with online matchmaking and replay modes.
Looking to the future, a number of purely multiplayer, eSports games have been announced for both PCs and consoles. ShootMania, a fast-paced, multiplayer shooter, is an example of a title that was explicitly made with eSports in mind. In fact, developer Nadeo went so far as to bring professional gamers on stage to demo the game during E3 2012. EVE Online developer CCP plans to support eSports functionality in Dust 514, allowing spectators to place bets on the outcomes of deathmatches. CCP has made several statements indicating that they are planning an eventual launch of a PS4 version of Dust 514, which, coupled with the console's "Share" functionality, should make for some raucous live streams.
