Dignitas has announced that it has folded its men’s Valorant roster. The news follows an initial report from Daily Esports’ George Geddes, with a later confirmation coming from the team’s in-game leader, Rory ‘dephh’ Jackson.
In its announcement tweet, the organisation says that it is “actively searching for a new home” for the roster, while reaffirming that it is “an avid supporter of Valorant,” and will continue to field its women’s squad.
Dignitas’ men’s team struggled to make waves within Valorant. Its crowning achievements were a fourth place finish at August 2020’s Pop Flash tournament, and a second place finish in December 2020’s Pittsburgh Knights Before Christmas event. Its attempts to qualify for Valorant Champions Tour Stage 1 Challengers ended in defeat, while the team’s most recent loss came at the hands of Ghost Gaming in last month’s Nerd Street Gamers monthly tournament.
The full announcement tweet can be seen below.

While Dignitas seeks a new home for its now-defunct roster, dephh states in his tweet that the team will “be competing in VCT as a pug.” The organisation-less group’s first shot will come today with the kicking off of the open qualifiers for Stage 2 Challengers 1.
