With all the glowing feedback from the gaming community and great ratings, WCG was given the greenlight to produce the second season of WCG Ultimate Gamer. What will season 2 bring is anybody's guess as the production meetings have just begun, but everyone here at WCG are looking forward to another great season and we hope that you will join us.
Just to catch up some of you who may not know what WCG Ultimate Gamer is, here is a brief description. WCG Ultimate Gamer is an exciting 8-episode elimination-style reality series that aired in March and April 2009 on the SyFy channel. As the 12 contestants share a loft in downtown Los Angeles, they were tested in real-life challenges inspired by best-selling game titles, competed in the video games themselves, and ultimately had to avoid elimination in head-to-head battles in an arena filled with hundreds of spectators, reaching for a prize package that includes $100,000 and the ultimate Samsung electronics package.
