FaZe Clan, an American organization that is mostly known for its Call of Duty achievements, has bought out the G2 lineup for an undisclosed fee.
Mikail “Maikelele” Bill’s team have been part of G2 since September 2015, which was when the Kinguin company decided to support the team by becoming a title sponsor of the organization based in Spain.
In recent days rumours began spreading about the team moving to FaZe Clan, who are one of the biggest organizations in Call of Duty, however both parties never commented on the matter up until now.
