Ghost Gaming has announced it’s parting ways with the vast majority of its CS:GO roster and calling into question whether it'll remain in the CS:GO competitive scene at all.
Josh “steel” Nissan, Ryan “Freakazoid” Abadir, Kenneth “koosta” Suen are all departing the organisation. Matthew “Wardell” Yu is still contracted to Ghost Gaming - having signed a multi-year agreement - but will likely transfer to another organisation in the coming weeks.
According to HLTV’s report, steel has confirmed that Ghost Gaming’s lineup does not intend to stick together, and also alluded to the fact that this news was a long time coming.
Ghost Gaming’s now disbanded lineup had been competing since June 2018 and placed in the top eight at the ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals. Most recently, they earned a fifth place finish at cs_summit 4.
It’s unclear whether the organisation will attempt to rebuild a new CS:GO roster, or leave the scene entirely and try its hand at another esport.
