At the beginning of November, MLG had their final tournament of the year featuring games like League of Legends, Halo 4 & Starcraft 2. Then this past weekend, IPL 5 featured just Starcraft 2, League of Legends & ShootMania. Things seemed better than ever before for the eSports community with IGN bringing in over one-hundred thousand concurrent viewers during the live-broadcasted games for League from Thursday morning to Sunday night.
Just two days ago, the team’s account was still doing business as usual but with the blog not rolling in the last month, it’s not a shock to see such an announcement. The shock is to see it end so quickly. Just a week ago, eSports reporter and former pro Boss Nasti posted an interview of a very confident Mark Ferraz who is the CEO of the gaming team.
The team was made up of sixteen Starcraft 2 players featuring team captain SaSe the famed Swedish Protoss player. Quantic also had one Call of Duty team featuring four players. The final message the team is giving out to the world is simply this: "We love you all, our fans, players, staff, sponsors, and owners... 2012... and forever in the hearts and minds of those touched..." Good luck to the players and support staff! Today, an independant crew working on an eSports Starcraft documentary entitled ‘StarNation’ posted an interview featuring Quantic Gaming’s Mark Ferraz. You can see it above.
