The GG Group was established in 2018 with the goal of pushing social equity in the esports and gaming world as a resource for good. On the ownership board of the GG Group sits the likes of Logic, Pusha-T, Upscale Vandal, Chris Zarou, Summer Watson, and esports pioneers Billy Levy as well as Zack Zeldin. Now, the GG Group has announced they have acquired Chaos Esports Club, or Chaos EC for short.
GG Group acquires Chaos Esports Club
In an open letter, the GG Group explained the acquisition of Chaos Esports Club, as well as Do Not Peek Entertainment, as they are looking to “organize chaos" in the world today.
The GG Group aims to support those causes who fight for social justice, as well as solve racial issues, especially in the gaming community.
The open letter explains: "The GG Group team has been incredibly inspired by those that have hit the streets to voice their anger, frustration, pain and despair are showing a brave display of the power and energy of organized chaos.
"The youngest of us have harnessed this energy by staging online protests, ruining 'presidential rallies', destroying racist hashtags, and raising money for good causes."
The GG Group wants to initiate meaningful change in the world through esports and gaming platforms, amongst other things.
For Chaos Esports Club fans wondering what this means, it basically boils down to re-introducing Chaos EC with the help of various tastemakers and entrepreneurs on the GG Group board.
GG Group's President, Ramon Gamble, explained: "As we expand Chaos’ non-competitive roster we are committing that a meaningful number of our new signees will be people from underrepresented communities."
Speaking to Complex, rapper Pusha-T explained: "I’ve been a part of this ownership group close to two years now and since the beginning, my main call to action was to focus on the lack of inclusion and diversity in the gaming industry.
"Any business I’m a part of has to be proactive in using its resources and platform to support the fight against social injustice."
Clearly, there are some big things coming in the near future for Chaos Esports Club fans to look forward to. It will be exciting to see what the GG Group has planned for Chaos EC moving forward.
