Call of Duty Esports: Team Space Acquired by Gen.G Esports

Professional Call of Duty squad formerly known as Team Space has found an organization after months of waiting. Michael “Spacely” Schmale, Chance “Maux” Moncivaez, Michael “MajorManiak” Szymaniak, Colt “Havok” Mclendon, and Jared “Nagafen” Harrell have been picked up (finally) by Gen.G.

Team Space previously competed as Str8 Rippin’ at CWL Vegas this past December. After Vegas, however, they called themselves Team Space for the CWL Pro League Qualifiers this January. After a somewhat rocky qualifier, Team Space advanced far enough to capture one of the final Pro League spots. Without a formal organization backing them, Team Space became one of the most attractive free agent squads in Call of Duty.

Gen.G Esports, a Korean esports organization, formally announced the signing of Team Space on January 31. Gen.G owns the Overwatch League’s Seoul Dynasty, and they also field teams in League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm and PUBG. They are ranked the seventh most valuable esports organization according to Forbes. Gen.G’s acquisition of Team Space marks their competitive Call of Duty debut, and they will begin play on February 4th in Division A alongside powerhouses OpTic Gaming and Luminosity.
