The owner of the RushB Media media portal Ryan 'RyanAtRBM' Friend said that he learned from the CEO of Cloud9 about the organization's intentions to disband its CS: GO roster. According to him, Cloud9 are going to return to the scene after the end of the COVID-19 pandemic and will focus their forces only on the North American region.
The information was confirmed by well-known insider Guillaume 'neL' Canelo. On his Twitter, he said that his sources are claiming Cloud9's intentions to close its project.
The C9 leadership has not yet commented on this information.
Recall that in mid-2020 it became known that Cloud9 are going to revive their activities in CS: GO and have attracted serious resources for this. Renowned caster Henry 'HenryG' Greer became roster manager and subsequently assembled a roster that cost the organization $ 6,000,000 +. The first to join the team was British ex-Team Vitality player Alex 'ALEX' McMeekin, and later the remaining roster was added around him. By the way, Cloud9 took part in the largest deal in the history of CS: GO. The Danish esportsman cost the club $ 2,100,000, $ 500,000 of which went to Astralis, and the rest was paid for salaries during the contract.
