After merging with OpTic in November, Frisco-based OpTic Gaming changed its name from Envy Gaming and acquired the startup Botisimo.

Snoop Dogg, Monstercat, and Dude Perfect are just a few of the 30,000+ streamers who use Botisimo’s tools to reach more than 36 million unique viewers each month. According to OpTic CEO Adam Rymer, who joined the startup’s board last year, it’s one of the most effective tools a creator can use to engage with their audience.

One of the biggest esports and entertainment companies in the world, OpTic, based in Frisco, has announced the acquisition of Botisimo, a multi-platform chatbot tool for streamers. Less than two years after its debut, Botisimo exits with the deal, the terms of which were not made public.

Given that OpTic has been using Botisimo’s technology for its content creators’ and players’ streams ever since it was known as Envy Gaming before merging with OpTic and rebranding as a result, the move makes sense.

The esports organization, which continued to operate under the name Envy Gaming, contributed to Botisimo’s Series A funding round last year. As a result, Rymer joined Botisimo’s board and the company started developing features geared toward the esports sector.

With tools for livestream marketing, analytics, and audience engagement, Botisimo’s technology integrates with a wide range of platforms, including Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and Discord. Rymer claimed that OpTic’s efforts to diversify revenue opportunities and deepen its involvement in streaming will be aided by the acquisition of Botisimo thanks to these capabilities.

Oscar Armstrong, the founder, and CEO of Botisimo, will become OpTic’s new executive vice president of technology as a result of the acquisition.

The end of 2020 saw the launch of Botisimo, with Mason Bridge, a Dallas-based operating partner, and advisory firm, providing $700,000 in initial seed funding. Over 30,000 streamers have joined the company’s platform since then, including well-known figures like Snoop Dogg, Monstercat, and Dude Perfect. More than 36 million unique users interact with Botisimo’s tools each month, the company claims.
