CounterLogic Gaming is releasing its Overwatch team, joining dozens of organisations who have let their teams go in 2017.

CLG announced their acquisition of an Overwatch team in December 2016 at Major League Gaming’s Vegas Overwatch tournament, and the roster has remained fairly stable despite a lack of major success for the team.

The North American esports outfit are now looking to sell off their players to new organisations, with CLG saying in their announcement that several players have already been sold and many other deals are currently being finalised.

"Many teams in the months prior had released their rosters in order to re-evaluate their position in the esport, but we still believed that the Overwatch League could be the right fit for CLG," the team said in an announcement.

"After months of discussion, however, it was determined that entering the Overwatch League does not align with our goals at the present time and that we will be parting ways with our Overwatch team."
