In a statement given to ESPN, the announced that they had already begun talking to investors regarding the Overwatch League, which is yet to announce any real details. However some reports have suggested that league spots could be selling for upwards of $30 million dollars.
“I’m really happy to compete and be on a solid team again” Winghaven said in a statement to ESPN, “”Looking forward to the Overwatch Pit in the next days, where we’re gonna showcase our lineup and we’ll do our best, even though we didn’t have much time to play together with the roster.”
The team will their debut in the European PIT Championship, which kicks off today, and features the likes of Ninjas in Pyjamas, Team Dignitas, and Misfits.
