Singapore-based Resurgence announced a rebrand following another successful year that saw it cement its place as one of Southeast Asia’s major esports outfits, with a projected three-fold increase in revenue.
The organisation revealed its new branding on its official Facebook page on Wednesday (18 November). Now going by ‘RSG’, the “new name, logo (“Respect All. Fear None”), website, and team jerseys are to better align the company’s brand collaterals with RSG’s stance, offerings, and direction”, the organisation said in a statement.
“The rebrand reflects our on-going commitment to innovate and evolve ahead of the pulse of the esports scene,” said RSG founder and CEO Jayf Soh, who started the organisation in 2017. “We started with a mission to empower and nurture aspiring players by creating opportunities for sustainable esports careers in Singapore.”
“Today, we are on track to achieve a projected three-fold increase in revenue for our financial year, despite the pandemic’s impact,” Soh said.
“RSG is dedicated to showcase Singapore esports to a regional stage and raise the bar, as we scale up and diversify our offerings to other synergistic aspects of the gaming and esports market.”
In addition to Singapore and Malaysia, RSG recently set up operations in Vietnam and Myanmar, with the organisation targeting to reach 150 million of the gaming audience in Southeast Asia next year.
“As we extended our presence to more markets, we realised that our fans started to affectionately abbreviate our name to RSG. So naturally, they should have the final say,” Soh said of the rebrand.
