Dota 2 TI10 prize pool update sees it nearing $40 million.
With Valve extending the Battle Pass after delaying The International 10, the event's prize pool is hitting historic numbers. The Battle Pass extension was announced in tandem with the release of Immortal Treasure III and is currently scheduled to end on Oct. 9. The tournament date is still up in the air, however, and likely won't be happening until August of next year.
Dota 2 TI10 Prize Pool Update: Will Soon Exceed $40M
The Dota 2 The International 10 prize pool currently sits at $39M. Last year's tournament's prize pool was only $34M, albeit with a shorter purchasing window. Also, the prize pool has been steadily increasing over the past few years. Still, TI10's Battle Pass already surpassed TI9's in the same amount of time and is now approaching another milestone.
While The International Battle Passes always rewards the players that purchase them, the primary recipients of this giant prize pool will obviously be the players that compete in the tournament. Half of the massive pool will be split by the winning team.
It still remains to be seen how Valve will treat this situation, though, with the tournament being delayed by a year.
