  • G2 Esports has signed Virtue and CTZN to their Rainbow Six Siege roster
  • Fabian is stepping down from the team, who is currently searching for new opportunities
  • G2 had a disappointing performance at the Six Invitational 2020
  • After a disappointing performance at the Six Invitational 2020, G2 Esports has made some significant changes to its Rainbow Six Siege roster.  

    In attempt to capture the former glories as Six Invitational 2019 champions, G2 has signed Ben “CTZN” McMillan and Jake “Virtue” Grannan to its main roster.  

    British player CTZN achieved success with Natus Vincere who won the Pro League Season 10 finals in Japan last year, while Virtue previously played for Fnatic.  

    Speaking about joining the team, CTZN said: “Joining G2 is a dream come true because ever since I started playing this game I have watched them from the beginning grow into what they are now.  

    “My goals and aspirations are to win every tournament that’s available in Rainbow Six and to recreate the G2 era again with this team. My personal goal is to keep consistency throughout the year and make sure to do my job to the highest level possible.” 

    With these two new additions, G2’s captain Fabian “Fabian” Hallsten will be stepping down from the roster – in what’s described as a decision they both reached “mutually”.  

    Speaking about his departure, Fabian said: “I felt that it was time for me to move on. During our recent performances, the group atmosphere wasn’t great, so I asked to be traded.  

    “I love my G2 teammates as friends but I don’t think we should continue playing together at this point. We’re currently working with G2 on finding me a new home.  

    “The option I was hoping for during this transfer period, unfortunately, didn’t work out, so I’m looking for other great opportunities for me out there, preferably in the EU but possibly other regions if the opportunity is spicy.” 

    Along with Fabian, G2 has also parted ways with Pascal “Cryn” Alouane and Ferenc “SirBoss” Meresz who joined the team on loan until the end of the Six Invitational 2020.  

    You can check out the new G2 roster below.  

    • Niclas “Pengu” Mourtizen 

    • Aleksi “UUNO” Tyopponen 

    • Juhani “Kantoraketti” Toivonen 

    • Ben “CTZN” McMillan 

    • Jake “Virtue” Grannan 

    The team are set to relocate to Berlin to begin practicing together, although we'll have to see whether combining so many fraggers in one team can bring in results for the G2 squad.
