Former Overwatch pro and popular streamer Felix "xQc" Lengyel is leaving the Sentinels esports organization.
xQc was part of Sentinels for a year and a half. He started out as an Overwatch pro and content creator but started streaming for the organization in the fall of 2019, quickly becoming one of the biggest streamers in gaming. On August 26, xQc requested that he be released from the team.
Sentinels confirmed that they had granted his request, effective immediately, "so that he may pursue new opportunities."
“While we hate to see xQc leave, we couldn’t be more excited about his future. His time as a Sentinel was cherished by everyone in the organization, and we know he will continue to find success in whatever he does next. We’ll always be there in chat spamming xQcL. Thank you, xQc. Once a Sentinel, always a Sentinel," the organization stated.
Sentinels also shared a short montage of xQc moments with the organization.
