Following a drop in tournament frequency and overall attention for Hearthstone, Dignitas will be withdrawing from the HS scene.
In an extremely short statement, Dignitas announced via their website that they will be releasing the entire Hearthstone roster consisting of 4 players.
They stated that “Today we regret to announce that we have decided to close our Hearthstone squad and release the players from their contracts with immediate effect. We have decided to no longer support Hearthstone moving forward.”
