On February 17, OS Studios announced the promotion of Will Abreu to head of broadcasting. Abreu is a seasoned professional in the gaming and broadcast industries, and has produced more than 150 events during 11-year career in gaming and esports. They include (RED) Creator Cup 2021, NYXL Homestand 2019, Arena World Championships and Mythic Dungeon Invitational at BlizzCon 2018, CWL Champs 2017 in Orlando and MLG Columbus CS:GO Major 2016.

Abreu started out as a fan of StarCraft: Brood War after living in Korea for a summer. That was the catalyst for his career in the gaming industry. He started in 2011 at MLG, where as a technical director he worked on the esports report out of MLG’s New York studio. At the same time, he also produced the MLG pro circuit for titles including StarCraft, Call of Duty, Gears of War and CS:GO.

In 2016, Abreu joined Activision-Blizzard and focused on Call of Duty and World of Warcraft, revitalizing World of Warcraft’s esports scene and launching a new competitive community with Mythic Dungeon Invitational (presently known as Mythic Dungeon International). From there, he went to Esports Engine in 2019 as a founding employee in the role of Senior Live Producer, where he worked with clients such as Andbox, the Houston Outlaws, Team Liquid and Call of Duty Mobile.

As head of broadcasting, he will expand the broadcast team and continue to stage major events.

On Abreu’s new role, John Higgins, CEO of OS Studios said, “What an exciting time this is for OS Studios. We are starting 2022 on a high note with one of the most seasoned producers leading our broadcast team. The momentum this year will be extraordinary, from control rooms to more producers to activate on new shows.”

Abreu said, “I’m honored to be taking this role with such a team of creative rock stars. When I joined OS, it was immediately apparent how passionate and talented the broadcast team was. I’m looking forward to building this group up and continuing to have a hand in the way stories are told in the world of esports.”
