Update: KennyS confirmed that the leak is false. He tweeted out that he loves played Valorant, but he wants "to grind CS rn", shutting down any speculations about his switch to Valorant.

Original story: Last week we've witnessed the end of an era, with Kenny "kennyS" Schrub being removed from the G2 esports roster after four years, effectively becoming a free agent.

While this was definitely a huge moment for the competitive CS:GO scene and a big change for G2 esports, for people who follow competitive CS:GO this decision will not come as a huge surprise, as G2 Esports was struggling for quite some time now, and kennyS definitely wasn't performing as he was in his days of glory.

And while we already know everything about G2 Esports' future plans and their new roster, kennyS was quite mysterious about his next steps, leaving his fans to speculate and eagerly await any official announcements.

A few days after the announcement of his removal, kennyS is still being quiet about what's next, but speculation and rumours are already starting to surface about his possible future.

A well-known and reliable insider Arran "Halo" Spake has been amongst the first to share some concrete details on kennyS' future, and some of his fans who prefer CS:GO might not like the news.

According to Halo's sources, kennyS is considering transitioning to competitive Valorant, and is currently having a trial with Alliance, a well-know Swedish esports org.

While he is showing a desire to switch games, Halo also emphasizes that "KennyS hasn't fully committed on a switch to Valorant yet with options in CS:GO."

While KennyS is far from his best days of CS:GO, he is still one of the CS:GO legends, present on the scene for almost a decade and with many unforgettable plays made and countless tournaments won.

If this report turns out to be true, it will undeniably be a huge loss for the CS:GO scene and one of the biggest switches from CS:GO to Valorant to date, in terms of player's importance.

Alliance joined competitive Valorant in early December last year, and they are currently showing decent results in VCT 2021 Europe Stage 1, finishing as a Top 4 team in Challengers 2, securing a spot at Masters, which are being held from 12th March to 21st March.

And while Arran "Halo" Spake has a decent history of inside information which were true, it still remains to be seen if kennyS will indeed switch to Valorant or not, so take this report with a grain of salt.
