OpTic reportedly out of VALORANT franchised league

The best team from North America might be absent next year.

OpTic Gaming is reportedly out of contention for the VALORANT franchised league for 2023. 

The runners-up at VALORANT Champions Istanbul will not be one of the 30 partnered teams in the initial franchised league, according to Kevin Hitt. This information comes alongside OpTic in-game leader Pujan “FNS” Mehta posting a goodbye post, thanking his teammates on Instagram earlier today. 

OpTic quickly rose to become one of the top teams in VALORANT this year after winning Masters: Reykjavík, coming in third at Masters: Copenhagen, and finishing second at VALORANT Champions. This was coupled with a dominant performance during the regional Challengers leagues where they placed second back-to-back.

This is a breaking news story with more details to follow. Updates will be added as soon as possible.
