Esports organisation Rogue has announced that it will part ways with its current Overwatch roster after not being named one of the inaugural teams in the Overwatch League.

Rogue posted a statement on Twitlonger this morning, describing the situation:

The Rogue team had a good deal of first place finishes to its name in 2017, including wins at the BEAT Invitational Season 2 and the Overwatch PIT Championship last April. Most recently, the squad closed out its Overwatch Contenders run at 5th place.

All 12 teams have been officially locked for the Overwatch League's start date on January 10, 2018.

The buy-in, reportedly set as high as $US20 ($26) million, will establish regional teams in areas like Dallas, San Francisco and Shanghai, as well as a developmental minor league.
