After a poor showing at the Overwatch Open, which saw the team failing to qualify to the playoffs, Team Dignitas released Seb “Numlocked” Barton and Artur “Art1er” Bishcof from their contracts, the organization announced today.

“Following disappointing results at both Gamescom and the Overwatch Open hosted by ELEAGUE, the Team Dignitas Overwatch team has decided to make roster change,” announced the organization, before explaining the reasoning behind their decision: “the team communication and strategic development has not improved at a rate that is fast enough for the team’s own high standards.”

“We would like to thank Seb and Artur for their efforts put into the team’s development, and will keep an eye on their careers with great interest,” finalized Dignitas, before adding that they are looking for “suitable replacements.”
