Consequently, we announce that Ninjas in Pyjamas will be evaluating the strategy for presence in the game. This means releasing Anastasios â€œYungâ€ Timpanidis, one of the players who were with us since the teamâ€™s inception. We would like to take the time to thank Yung for his time in Ninjas in Pyjamas. We wish you good luck in your future esports career. Let us hope our paths meet again.
We will be keeping Max â€œGoofyâ€ Rosenlind in the organization and are letting him explore other options as we evaluate Fortnite and our approach to it for the long-term.
We are not closing the door on Fornite and will keep our eyes on the gameâ€™s development. However, it seems clear to us that there is currently a low focus from the publisher side to develop and nurture a functioning esports ecosystem. As the economics of the scene are currently functioning, organizations including ourselves will have to look into the casual aspect of the game and what opportunities that brings.
