2020 13" MBP not recognizing Razer Core v2

I got a 2020 13" MBP last week for work, but I am planning to also use it for World of Warcraft since I really hate Windows and want to sell my old Windows machine. I already had a Razer Core v2, and I have an MSI Armor Radeon RX580. When I connect the Core to the MBP it seems to turn on momentarily, but then the lights on the Core shut off. The MBP is able to charge when connected to the Core, but it is not recognizing the GPU or USB ports on the Core at all. I am using Mac OS, not Bootcamp. The OS has all current updates for Catalina. Can anyone help me troubleshoot this? I have looked on the forums here and on Reddit, but I can't seem to find anyone with that exact same hardware combination having the same issue.

@nytemare, Open System Information and click on the Thunderbolt tree to see whether your Razer Core V2 shows up.
