WCG announced plans to become a global digital entertainment platform with the world’s top festival enjoyed not only by eSports fans but also digital entertainment content enthusiasts.

WCG has been recognized for 14 years, as the world’s largest eSports competition since the “WCG Challenge” pilot competition held in 2000 until the Kunshan, China competition in 2013. Many eSports fans were disappointed as the competitions stopped after 2014, so the revival this March after Smilegate Holdings acquired WCG is much anticipated by eSports fans. Following an incubation period at Smilegate Holdings, WCG is preparing to launch as an independent corporation.

WCG revealed a brand new CI to represent its new image. The new CI is a combination of dynamic structure that embodies three-dimensional solid bodies in a two-dimensional plane and various colors full of personality.
