The Elevate Call of Duty team has announced the release of two players from their Call of Duty roster after a disappointing finish to the Infinite Warfare season.
In preparation for the release of CoD: WWII, numerous high-level roster changes have taken place within the community during the 'off season.'
Changes, such as Cloud9 fully disbanding
, Team EnVyUs dropping three players
, along with Patrick 'Aches' Price announcing a prospective roster
filled with veterans, continue to take place almost daily.
Announced on September 1st, Elevate would be parting ways with Zach 'Zed' Denyer and Ben 'Desire' Wright following a 17th-24th placing at the 2017 Call of Duty Championship, with their run coming to an end after being disqualified
against Mindfreak Black due to a controller issue.
Josh 'Watson' Watson and Jordan 'Reedy' Reed will remain with the organization for the upcoming season, with Elevate affirming that the full roster will be revealed in the future.
Dexerto was able to receive a statement from Zed regarding the decision, stating that the team began to see less success after the departure of Sean 'Seany' O'Connor to Red Reserve.
"As soon as Seany left the team, it was always going downhill. I should have left with him, everyone lost trust in each other, and it was just a waste of time. Right now, I have no plans but as long as I get a team with players who don't make excuses and want to win, I'll be fine."
At the time of writing, it is unknown which players will be joining Elevate, along with the future plans of Desire.
Call of Duty: WWII is set to release on November 3rd.
