Esports infrastructure company ReKTGlobal has announced that they have acquired esports organisation Rogue, an organisation with teams in games like CS:GO, Rocket League, and Vainglory and is co-owned by DJ Steve Aoki.
"ReKTGlobal will take Rogue to the next level," said Aoki. "We share the same passion and vision, and we're going to continue to build Rogue as an esports powerhouse through new sponsors, partners and by most importantly, winning."
ReKTGlobal will be providing resources for Rogue to continue expanding, and new investors, sponsors, and partners have already been attracted as a result of this. All Rogue employees will be retained, and the aim is to "upgrade current teams with top players, enter new games and pursue Overwatch and League of Legends franchises in the future," as well as expanding and sharing offices from Las Vegas to New York City.
"The combination of Rogue and ReKTGlobal is unstoppable. We have all the right elements to dominate the industry: a champion esports team, a passionate fan base, exciting and genuine content, events and activations, deep roots in both esports and traditional sports, connections to the right sponsors and partners, and the best management in the industry," said ReKTGlobal founder Amish Shah.
