Fnatic is parting ways with its Rainbow Six: Siege roster
It will be assessing other options and regions in the scene.
Fnatic has announced that it has parted ways with its current Rainbow Six: Siege roster, and that it will now be exploring other opportunities in the scene, including by assessing other regions in the hope of finding a place where it can deliver on long-term sustainability and performance-based success.
Fnatic states: "As an organisation, we are committed to performance and driving value for our fans, but we know we have been falling short of this. As we look to next year, we want to ensure our results match our ambitions to be back in the international circuit and competing for trophies. Which we know is what you, the fans, want to see from us too."
The British esports team most recently had a roster of Japanese players, where it was competing in the Asian and Oceanic region. This decision suggests that Fnatic will be looking to return to the West for competitive Rainbow Six, no doubt with eyes on either Europe or South America, as some of the best and most successful teams in the world tend to be based in these regions currently.
Fnatic has said however that it doesn't want to part ways with every member of its former team, as it is exploring ways to retain Etienne "Mag" Rousseau, and to keep him in the Fnatic ecosystem going forward. We're promised further updates on this front in the near future.
