Michael Jordan has just joined a group of investors in contributing $26 million USD into AXiomatic Gaming. Just days after Drake and Scooter Braun announced the co-ownership of Esports company 100 Thieves, Jordan joins the likes of Peter Guber, part-owner of the LA Dodgers and Golden State Warriors; Jeff Vinik, owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning; and even fellow NBA hall of famer Magic Johnson, for a stake in the world of Esports.

In other gaming new, Nintendo celebrates having over 1,000 Switch titles in new video.
