It is official. Team Secret is entering the realm of Filipino Esports. The European esports organization, which is known for its popular Dota 2 roster recently confirmed that they will be officially "settling down" in the Philippines.

Earlier on Tuesday, Team Secret’s social media pages posted that they were “settling down in the Philippines.” 

Team Secret also opened up an official “Secret Philippines” group on Facebook. CEO John Yao has already begun hosting giveaways in this group and asking "what team you want us to form in PH".

In the giveaway post, Team Secret's CEO asked fans for their opinions on which game title they want to see a Team Secret roster in, which confirms that the European organization might not necessarily be looking to be picking up a Dota 2 roster in the Philippines. This might even be a Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) team, a PUBG Mobile team, or a roster for some other game.

Earlier in September, Team Secret’s social media pages posted a quick teaser that contained a 16-second video of Team Secret’s logo shrouded in the colors of the Philippines flag. The caption read: "Pilipinas... Handa na ba kayo sa parating na sikreto?" which literally translates to "Philippines ... Are you ready for the upcoming secret?" It finally looks like Team Secret have revealed it, well at least a little bit.

Earlier we had speculated that Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) might be one of the game titles that Team Secret might consider getting their hands on.

However, with the release of Wild Rift just around the corner, Team Secret will have the chance to gauge the popularity of the game title, compare it against MLBB and perhaps then consider picking up a roster in it.
