Splyce Drops Their CS:GO Roster – Calls It Quits For the Game Entirely

The Franchise has revealed they will be focusing on other games in the future.

A surprise announcement from over the weekend, as Splyce CEO Marty "Lazerchicken" Strenczewilk revealed that the organization will be pulling out of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Esports scene. The intention is for the organization to focus on other Esports titles that they are involved in, such as League of Legends, Call of Duty, Halo, and Rocket League.

This news comes less than a week after it was announced that Splyce would be receiving quite a large investment from the OverActive Media Group (Formerly The Ledger Group) to the tune of $1.5 Million. In the investment announcement, Adam Adamou, Chief Executive Officer of The Ledger Group had this to say, “Our initial investments in Enthusiast Gaming and Askott Entertainment, and now Splyce, firmly position us to capitalize on a portfolio of some of the industry's leading companies.  We are adjusting our focus to better provide Canadian investors broad ownership exposure to this exciting and growing opportunity.” These investments will likely be used to help Splyce bolster their application to the European League of Legends Championship Series, a task that is taking a lot of resources from Splyce’s end, as seen in the video above.

Splyce’s track record in the CS:GO scene hasn’t exactly been stellar, with the team mostly sitting in the lower tiers of competition for quite some time. In contrast to this, their League of Legends team finished third in the EU LCS this season, and their Halo squad managed to take down the former world champions and claim the title as the 2018 Halo World Champions.

While the news will undoubtedly be disappointing for fans of the franchise, Strenczewilk urges fans to keep faith with the organization as they continue to make inroads in the other major Esports.
