Brandon “Seagull” Larned is well known for being part of The Overwatch League and his streams. Now the professional player has announced his departure from the league in favor of streaming.

The announcement was made on the official Overwatch League page directly from Dallas Fuel.

“The birdman’s last flight on the professional Overwatch stage is coming to an end. Dallas Fuel player Brandon “Seagull” Larned, a fan favorite with one of the largest followings and most decorated resumes in competitive gaming, is retiring from professional Overwatch effective immediately. Seagull plans to focus on streaming and building his community, which already counts more than 750,000 followers on Twitch.”

Owner and CEO of Envy Gaming stated:

“Seagull joined us at a time when Team Envy had the most dominant roster in North America in Overwatch and helped contribute throughout the ups and the downs of our first Overwatch League season as the Dallas Fuel. We support Brandon in his decision and he leaves us on good terms. We’ll always be pleased that he chose to make his final act in professional Overwatch with the Dallas Fuel.”

Overwatch is now available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
