Overwatch teams are dropping like flies. This time around, it’s Team Diginitas stepping away from Blizzard’s first-person shooter, the organization announced Monday.

Team Dignitas has released the entirety of their team, which included players Marcel “Veinless” Lehmann, Elvinas “Evokje” Padegimas, Patrick “Wat7” Marwal, Jose Antonio “BromaS” Ramos Gonzales, Joshua “ToxikeN” Campos, and Jiri “LiNkz” Masalin. The players had been with Dignitas since August of last year.

“Team Dignitas is still committed to the game of Overwatch and remains optimistic about the long-term opportunity it presents for teams, players, spectators and fans,” said a statement on Team Dignitas’ official site.

Major esports organizations have been releasing their Overwatch teams in rapid succession in recent weeks, with Splyce, compLexity, and Team SoloMid all stepping back from the game. The reluctance to continue with the esport may have something to do with lingering questions about the Overwatch League. Blizzard responded to some of the rumors surrounding the Overwatch League in a statement sent to the press.

In other Overwatch news, competitive Season 4 will be over at “the end of May.” Meanwhile, Bobby Kotick is looking for revenues similar to that of the NBA or NFL with the Overwatch League. For more, head over to the Yahoo Esports Overwatch hub.
