G2, Invictus Gaming and DOTA2

North American isn’t the only place G2 Esports is making moves and expanding its influence. In China they’ve partnered up with Invictus Gaming and entered the DOTA 2 space. This will be G2 Esports first entry into China as they partner with Invictus Gaming to launch G2’s first DOTA 2 team G2.iG.

This is a major step for G2 Esports who already have a substantial fanbase in China, but until now, there was no local team for their fans to support. With the addition of their DOTA 2 team, they give the fans this opportunity and add yet another esport roster to their incredibly long list of gaming rosters.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for G2 as we continue our global expansion. We could not have found a better partner in iG - we can’t wait to start this alliance together and build our footprint in China,” said Alban Dechelotte, Chief Executive Officer of G2 Esports. “China has continuously been a priority market for us and we’re happy to finally field a local team for our millions of Chinese fans to support.
