Cygames ceases operations on Cygames Beast esports team, releasing Daigo and many more ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Cygames has announced that they are ceasing operations on their Cygames Beast esports team, releasing Daigo and many more into free agency.

Cygames are the developers of the newly released fighting game Granblue Fantasy: Versus along with Dragalia Lost. The reason behind this decision is due to the organization having stakes in the game's success and wanting to avoid a conflict of interest with their players.

Here is the official statement from Cygames


On February 6, 2020, we released the fighting game version of the Action RPG Granblue Fantasy entitled "Granblue Fantasy: Versus" on the PlayStation 4 and entered the world of fighting games as game makers. Under these circumstances, continuing to sponsor players could lead to conflicts or disturbances to the players' future activities which would go against our said goal of supporting them and the fighting game community as a whole. In order to avoid such situations, we have decided to cease our sponsorship activities.

Now, these five high profile players are entering the FGC free agency pool:

  • Daigo
  • Fuudo
  • Infexious
  • GamerBee
  • PR Balrog

I imagine with the notoriety that these names hold, that it won't be long before we see them find new homes with other FGC organizations.
