Gen.G was founded in August 2017, but despite being a relatively new organization in the esports industry we already have a rich history in gaming. Our founding team has a successful history creating games—developing one of the world’s largest mobile game companies, Kabam, which has over 1,000 employees in seven countries. Kabam developed award-winning games played by 500 million+ people around the world and was acquired by Netmarble in 2017.
Our founders were inspired by the incredible talent of esports athletes in Korea and the passionate fans around the world, with Gen.G's mission soon forming: to bring the greatest esports athletes to a global stage. Originally formed as KSV Esports [Korea + Silicon Valley], we established our first team in Seoul, Korea called “Seoul Dynasty” in the Overwatch League.
Since Gen.G's formation, we've quickly expanded into other games. This includes our world championship-winning League of Legends team, three-time world championship-winning Heroes of the Storm team, championship-winning PUBG team, a Clash Royale team in Shanghai, China, the first all-female professional Fortnite team, a top-ranked Call of Duty team, and most recently an Apex Legends team.
Since our early inception as KSV Esports, we've changed our name to Gen.G (Generation Gaming) and grown to over 120 employees with offices in Los Angeles, CA; Seoul, Korea; and Shanghai, China. Gen.G is now one of the world's top 10 most valuable esports companies, according to Forbes. This is all thanks to our amazing family of teams, players, and content creators, and the millions of fans around the world that support us.
“ We are building Gen.G to serve the generation that is coming of age through gaming and esports. Our mission is to help all people—players, creators, and fans—around the world to achieve their best through the games we love. ”
