It was only announced on October 28th that HyperGames had revamped their Call of Duty roster, but it’s all over before an official game has been played.
HyperGames had recently announced a change in their roster. No one at that moment seemed to believe that the organisation would even think about cutting ties with the sport. But that is exactly what has happened. The organisation has decided to drop their Call of Duty roster mainly due to a cut in their COD budget. Competitive play in Call of Duty Franchise has suffered immensely over the past few months with not many teams and organisations seemingly interested in the sport.
HyperGames bought the exceL eSports lineup and their spot in the European CoD World League Pro Division for a reported $18,000 in April. They went on to place 2nd at the Gfinity Summer Masters, 3rd/4th in the CWL S2 Playoffs and 9th/12th at CoD XP 2016.
The new Infinite Warfare lineup, featuring only Zach ‘Zed’ Denyer from the original Black Ops 3 squad, was announced at Paris Games week on October 28th. It is now believed they’ll be free agents, with a number of organisations already in discussions regarding their services.
