Once notable esports organization Echo Fox has closed it’s doors. Founded in 2015 by Rick Fox, the company has halted all operations and released all of it’s players and staff. The news was confirmed by an Echo Fox investor via WIN.gg, saying “There is no Echo Fox. All the players were let go. The staff was terminated. The logo and uniform—they’re now a collector’s item.”
Echo Fox was popular within the esports community with several talented teams within different leagues including League of Legends, Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and several individual players in fighting games incluing Dragon Ball Fighter Z, Injustice 2, and Mortal Kombat.
However, the writing was on the wall due to several controversies the organization has faced since its inception in 2015. Ultimately, a lawsuit against general partner Rick Fox was issued in September 2019 stating that Fox was working against the best interest of the company.
This, however, will not be the end of the esports road for Fox as he has now entered into a joint venture with the CEO of Twin Galaxies.
