EnVyUs have confirmed their newest foray into CS:GO with the signing of a team featuring the core of the ex-Splyce/boxr squad.
The North American organisation had been away from the CS:GO scene since June, when they parted ways with both rosters following a series of disappointing results.
As part of the announcement, EnVyUs revealed a plan to shift their attention from France to North America and to build "a competitive Counter-Strike presence" for the organisation in the region.
The team will be competing in the next edition of the Pro League as it features Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen, Stephen "reltuC" Cutler and Taylor "Drone" Johnson, who were all part of the ex-Splyce roster that qualified for the prestigious ESL competition after beating Swole Patrol in the relegation tournament.
The trio will be joined by ex-Liquid AWPer Josh "jdm64" Marzano, a former teammate of reltuC on CLG, and by Noah "Nifty" Francis, who has left Renegades after an 18-month spell with the Australian side.
“We’re excited to bring a talented roster of Counter-Strike players together to write the next chapter in Envy CS:GO history,” EnVyUs owner and CEO Mike Rufail said in a statement.
“Our priority was to sign a roster that would compete at the highest level and give our loyal fans a team to cheer on.”
