The Mysterious Tale of EON Interactive in COD
Eon Interactive was supposedly founded by Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, owner and CEO of OpTic Gaming, and Michael “Hastr0” Rufail, Owner and Managing Director of Team EnVyUs. Under the premise of being an advertising agency, Eon was meant to be representative of both talent and branding.
Big-name CEOs like Dale Petroskey and Dante Simpson apparently also worked with Eon. With such a reputable team, the aforementioned organization worked in collaboration with “clients” such as Activision, Gamma Labs, Astro Gaming and Gunnar Optiks, and other personalities such as Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, Trevor “TmarTn” Martin and Tucker “Jericho” Boner.
Although such a talent pool of names apparently worked together to “emerge” esports as "one of the major televised sports," it has yet to be determined whether or not they’ve accomplished anything substantial to contribute to the esports industry. If it’s true that they’ve impacted any esport at all, their unsung humility is admirable.
The question remains: what happened to Eon Interactive and why hasn’t there been much talk about an agency meant to facilitate the propulsion of esports into a reputation as “one of the major U.S. Sports”?
There is very little information available in the public domain that can decipher what exactly Eon Interactive was, and what happened to it - which makes it so intriguing yet suspicious.
