Another one of Sony's Paris Games Week surprises appears to have been spoiled. The company is reportedly gearing up to announce its own competitive gaming platform called PlayStation Plus League.

As discovered by IGN, a French website for the league went up recently, revealing dedicated online leagues for games like Street Fighter V, Battlefield Hardline, FIFA 16, Rocket League, and Project Cars, among others. The Project Cars website appears to confirm this. It also reveals that players will be able to win real money if they place high enough in the tournament series.

Given its name, it would appear that PlayStation Plus League tournaments will be available only for paying subscribers, though further details are not available at this time.

It appears these pages have gone up ahead of time, as they feature broken links and missing content. Presumably, more details will be announced during Sony's Paris Games Week briefing today. The show kicks off at 10 AM PDT / 1 PM EDT, and you'll be able to watch it in its entirety right here on GameSpot.

Sony has said it plans to announce new games during the briefing, one of which could be Driveclub Bikes, which leaked earlier. Check back with GameSpot later for all the news as it's announced.

In other recent competitive gaming news, publishing giant Activision Blizzard has announced the formation of a business unit dedicated entirely to esports. This division is being run by the former presidents of ESPN and MLG.
