XSET announced on Monday that they will be stepping back from the Rainbow Six Siege competitive scene. Despite this, the organization is currently preparing for 2023 with the potential development of a new Rocket League team, the addition of a new Apex Legends player, and the creation of three additional esports teams.

The franchise made the announcement via Twitter.

“Hey XSET fam! We have a lot of exciting announcements coming up in 23′ regarding 3 new esports teams – so keep your eyes peeled,” the North American franchise said.

“With that being said, XSET has decided to no longer participate in Rainbow Six Siege and we are exploring a new Rocket League roster. We truly appreciate both the R6 and RL teams commitment to XSET and wish them the best going forward. Here’s a little teaser – with our most recent signing, we’ll be entering Apex Legends with a badass sqaud! Stay tuned and rep the set!”

As XSET will officially be leaving the competitive R6S scene, their North American League roster has been disbanded. They have also released their 2022 Rocket League roster, bidding farewell to Oliver “percy.” Ortiz, Jalen “rapid” Parker, Jordan “Evoh” and Canadian coach Trey “Trey” Hubatsch.

XSET first entered the Rainbow Six Siege competitive scene in 2020, quickly establishing themselves as a formidable team in the North American region. Over the past two years, they have consistently placed in the top tiers of various tournaments, including the Six Invitational and the North American League.

XSET’s withdrawal from the Rainbow Six Siege scene may be related to the recent unveiling of the Rainbow Six Esports Global Circuit, which will include a closed North American league starting in 2023. Given they qualified for both Majors and the Six Invitational, which is scheduled for February 2023, the team’s departure is sure to leave a void in the competitive landscape.

Recently, XSET have scaled back their involvement in various esports titles. The organization has disbanded its main VALORANT team and Game Changers roster after failing to secure a VCT partnership for 2023. In the summer, the entire Halo roster also departed the franchise. Currently, the organization only fields active rosters in Apex Legends and Splitgate, but it seems likely that this will change in 2023.

Although it has a limited number of active esports rosters, XSET has a large number of streamers and content creators, including some well-known sports stars and musicians. The organization has also participated in games such as Fortnite and CS:GO in the past.
