Talon Esports was founded and headquartered in Hong Kong. The organization has teams competing in League of Legends, Arena of Valor, Overwatch, Rainbow 6, Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, and now DOTA 2, Talon. One of the fastest-growing teams in Asia-Pacific like T1, with millions of fans globally.
Talon Esports officially announces their plan to enter into the VALORANT pro scene and recruit a new roster based here in the Philippines.
VALORANT is a logical fit for Talon’s background, with a history of success in the FPS genre with multiple titles inside the Overwatch Contenders and now participating in the APAC North Division for R6.
“We’ve been great fans of the game since its release in 2020, and we had watched VCT’s global success last year.” We believe the Philippines has world-class talent, and we’re excited to help strengthen the country’s international presence,” said Sean Zhang, CEO of Talon.
Signing a VALORANT roster from the PH, can you share a little more about what Talon Esports is looking to achieve in the PH esports scene?
When we enter a market, we invest very heavily into developing infrastructure on the ground to support our players and staff. Thus we will invest a lot of money to ensure a robust storytelling platform, performance and entertainment. For example, we will be building a TalonX creative studio (which we currently have in each of our markets/teams) coming to The Philippines, which will mean a fully fitted out agency with staff placed on the ground in Manila. Also, expect to see content creators further join our platform shortly.
Along with the likes of Nigma Galaxy, Team Secret, and T1, Talon Esports has become another global esports organization that has decided to set up roots in the Philippines.
We’re yet to find out who Talon has signed to their VALORANT roster. One thing is for sure, with the organization’s eye for talent – we expect nothing less than our jaws to drop when we see the announcement.
