Popular esports organization OpTic Gaming has been in a bit of turmoil lately and it seems we may be entering the next stage. The Infinite Esports organization has revealed that it’s parting ways with its global initiative and in turn, the teams garnered from it.
In posts to Twitter, the organization posted a thank you message for each of the divisions being released.
- Gears of War (Mexico)
- Southeast Asia Content Team
- OpTic fe CS:GO (Brazil)
These three teams follow in the footsteps of the recently released OpTic India CS:GO roster. The India roster was part of a larger controversy when it was discovered that Nikhil ‘forsaken’ Kumawat was cheating at the eXTREMESLAND 2018 Asia Finals. In turn, the player was released alongside the entire roster. While OpTic insisted that the other members were not aware, the organization thought it best to step away.
You can find the announcements for each division closure below:
“As we part ways with our regional Gears Team, we are thankful for their time and unwavering training to bring the local fans a trophy,” OpTic Mexico tweeted. “We’re proud of their resolve and we believe they will see future success in the Gears Pro Circuit. Thank you.”
“We would like to thank our content team for sharing their creativity and energy with Southeast Asia,” OpTic SEA tweeted. “As the regional teaming comes to close, we know they will continue to drive fan engagement in SEA and we wish them well in future projects. Thank You.”
“Today, we conclude our chapter in Brasil. We are grateful for the competitive accomplishments and professionalism of this regional team and we’re excited to see them push forward with future achievements. Thank You.”
It is unknown whether or not this is the final step in the restructuring of OpTic Gaming following the departure of several high-level members of the organization. Infinite has stated this is due to too large of an initial growth spurt.
