Chicago Huntsmen release Arcitys and Prestinni from CDL roster

Prestinni and Arcitys on Chicago HuntsmenChicago Huntsmen

Longtime duo and Professional Call of Duty twins Alec ‘Arcitys’ and Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson have been released by Chicago Huntsmen, the organization announced on Tuesday, September 8.

Arcitys played with the Huntsmen from the very start of the 2020 season, while Prestinni joined his brother mid-way through the season, after leaving Florida Mutineers.

Reuniting as a duo, the pair improved the Huntsmen squad overall, but it wasn’t enough at the final event of the year, where they just fell short of the mark, eliminated by Atlanta FaZe and bowing out in third.

Prestinni joined the Huntsmen from the Mutineers.

Other than Prestinni’s time at Mutineers, the pair had never not played together on the same team in their professional careers.

Being released simultaneously could mean that they plan to stick together on their next roster too, perhaps finding the time apart from each other not conducive to their performances.

Huntsmen thanked the pair and wished them the best for the upcoming season.

After the announcement, Arcitys thanked his now-former teammates. “It sucks that’s how that year went with no LAN, online, switching back to 4v4, you guys always made it blast to scrim and I would’ve lost my mind if it wasn’t for y’all ily guys.”

He also thanked team co-owner H3CZ and the fans for their support throughout the season. “Thank you to all the fans, team and owners,” he wrote on Twitter. “Appreciate all of them for the opportunity and for respecting the decision of me wanting to switch to a main AR for 4v4. I’ve been a professional for 4 years and haven’t had a full year running main. Thank you”

Arcitys and Prestinni were both top performers in the Modern Warfare season, and so will be expected to land on top rosters for the upcoming Black Ops Cold War.
