In a move that brings the esports world closer and closer to the forefront, esports infrastructure company ReKTGlobal has acquired Steve Aoki‘s Las Vegas–based esports organization Rogue.
Rogue, once known for its world-class Overwatch team, will continue on with the same staff and employees, according to ReKTGlobal. The organization currently fields teams in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Rainbow 6, H1Z1, Vainglory, and Rocket League. With ReKTGlobal, Rogue aims to acquire Overwatch and League of Legends teams, too, with offices in Las Vegas and New York City.
“Rogue is still a young company, and with all the growth we’ve experienced over the past year and a half, a strategic owner from the sports world makes sense,” Rogue CEO Derek Nelson said in a statement. “ReKTGlobal’s expertise will bring in the right opportunities for Rogue moving forward and help us to continue to grow and dominate in sports.”
