Team LDLC has announced their departure from the Call of Duty scene. In a statement posted to their team website, they mentioned, “Today, with the lack of investment from Activision, and with our player’s contracts ending, we prefer to step out of the Call of Duty scene, and to put on hold our activities in the game.” This news comes weeks after the first event (MLG Vegas) of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare cycle.
End of the adventure on Call of Duty. We wish good luck to our players for the future! https://t.co/ZEuvbU202B

- ESWC 2016: Top 16
- Gfinity Summer Masters 2016: Top 12
