Call of Duty roster would be sold individually, addressing the speculation in a live stream.
The two-time Call of Duty World Champion, Crimsix has been a core member of OpTic Gaming and has won multiple championships with the organization since the start of the Advanced Warfare competitive season.
OpTic Gaming has been the biggest name in competitive Call of Duty for years.
OpTic Crimsix addressed these rumors in a recent Twitch stream, explaining how he was never told directly or heard talks within the organization that the players would have been sold individually, “Not once have I ever heard of any talks about that.”
Crimsix followed up by saying that these rumors, which were shared by the CoD burner, were all new to him and after talking with some people within the organization, he found out that the rumors were in fact inaccurate, saying, ”To me that’s new, after I talked to some people, it’s not true.”
The world champion then explained that the people he was talking to within the OpTic organization were also unsure of what was going on and claimed that the rumors were started by someone in order to divide to current team.
“The person who said it has an agenda or something that they want to happen […] whoever that person is, somehow wants to get us, by creating drama or paranoia in our team,” he said.
