Reunited have announced via a heartfelt message that all operations have come to a halt, meaning that all players are also moving on.

"There is a range of reasons as to why this is happening now," Frederik Kragh Christensen, Founder & CEO of Reunited, writes. "The main reason, however, is the timing of the Overwatch League conflicting with our internal financial model, as we are running out of money. Earlier this fall, the news surfaced that we were in talks with several large sports entities, however, none of these were successful due to the uncertainty surrounding the acquisition of league spots. To be very clear: we are not opponents to Blizzard's work with the league and actually believe that this is what the industry needs to push forward. However, in the case of Reunited, the timing came at the worst possible moment. We look forward to following the league and cheer for the boys as they enter the most ambitious stage in esports history."

It was only a few days ago that Reunited lost two players and recruited two new ones: Normunds "sharyk" Faterins and Ruben "Rubikon" Zurabyan. Hendrik-William "vallutaja" Kinks, another Reunited Overwatch player, has said on Twitter that the whole team is staying as a complete unit in the future, including Andrei "uNFixed" Leonov, Thomas "Morte" Kerbusch, Harrison "Kruise" Pond, and coach Elliot "Hayes" Hayes.

Where next for the team? Let us know your thoughts below.
