Major League Gaming is "not planning to run" StarCraft 2 at the Pro Circuit Championship in Columbus, Oh. this November, MLG co-founder Sundance DiGiovanni revealed on Twitter this morning.
The tournament, which will run Nov. 22-24, won't feature Blizzard Entertainment's real-time strategy game because it "just doesn't fit into our Cbus plans," DiGiovanni explained in a subsequent tweet.
When asked what MLG's plans look like for the future of competitive StarCraft 2, a spokesperson told Polygon that the organization does "not have any additional information to share at this time."
Just so folks know - we are currently not planning to run SC2 at Cbus. Should that change we'll let you know via official channels.— Sundance DiGiovanni (@MLGSundance) August 8, 2013
MLG hosted the first season of the StarCraft 2 World Championship Series (WCS) America. On June 18, 2013, DiGiovanni announced that MLG would "transition away from operation of WCS America and refocus efforts on producing our own eSports competitions." Later that month, StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm was part of the MLG Spring Championship in Anaheim.
Today on Twitter, DiGiovanni also pointed out that WCS America "isn't going anywhere," and directed readers to the North American Star League, which took over WCS America duties.
