TALON ANNOUNCES ENTRY INTO VALORANT
Talon to recruit roster ahead of VCT 2022: Philippines Stage 2 Challengers
MANILA – MARCH 2, 2022 – Talon Esports officially announces its entry into the VALORANT pro scene and will look to recruit a new roster in the following months based in the Philippines.
Backed by a history of success in the FPS genre with numerous titles within the Overwatch Contenders as well as currently competing in APAC North Division for R6; VALORANT is a natural fit for Talon’s pedigree.
“We have been big fans of the game since its release in 2020 and seen the success of VCT across the globe last year. We know that the Philippines has world class talent and look forward in strengthening the country’s representation on the international stage,” said Sean Zhang CEO of Talon.
Talon entered the Philippines towards the end of 2021 with their DOTA 2 roster and will look to expand its local fanbase with the addition of VALORANT by competing in the upcoming VCT 2022: Philippines Stage 2 Challengers kicking off in May.
