DJ Steve Aoki has become part owner of Las Vegas-based eSports team Rogue.
The announcement was made during the DJ’s performance at TwitchCon 2016 on Saturday. After visiting PAX East, Aoki decided he would want to build an eSports team after being invited to play in a Street Fighter V exhibition match.
Rogues European squad recently finished third in the Overwatch Open this week and the team has a relatively new Counter-Strike : Global Offensive team. The CS:GO squad has a currently undefeated record in the ESEA Permier.
Our organization was expanding to the point where we wanted to bring on another partner. We couldn’t be happier that we met Steve when we did. His genuine passion for the eSports scene was exactly what we were looking for.
Rogue will be looking to Aoki for a supportive role in the Overwatch arena and build on their recent success as well as building up the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad.
