Today Complexity Gaming is announcing the sale of our Call of Duty squad to Team Evil Geniuses. The transaction, which has been negotiated over the past few weeks, is one of the largest of its kind in North American eSports history.
“Both the players and the organization felt it was time for a fresh start,” said Jason Lake, Founder and CEO of Complexity Gaming. “Everyone is happy with the transaction and we’d like to thank the squad for all their hard work and success during our time together. As for the future, Complexity loves COD and intends on building a new #coLofDuty as soon as possible so that we can continue to build on our unparalleled resume in the space.”
“We’re very excited about this acquisition, and we appreciate the commitment Complexity showed throughout the process to putting the players in a new home they’d be happy with,” said Alexander Garfield, CEO of Evil Geniuses. “This is a substantial investment for us (definitely the largest eSports contract buyout I’ve heard of), but we feel that both the accomplishments of the players and the growth of Call of Duty as an eSport warrant this kind of commitment.”
As always, we’d like to express our appreciation for all the support we have received from our fans. Stay tuned to the site for future updates on Complexity and Call of Duty.
