Overwatch pro player joins Valorant esports team

Overwatch pro player Jay "Sinatraa" Won has left the game to join Sentinel's Valorant team.

As announced on the firm's website, Won is one of four players to be signed with the search for a fifth teammate ongoing.

"The move to Valorant is no doubt a huge step in my career, and I couldn't be more excited about the opportunity," said Won.

"When I saw the team that Sentinels has put together, with so much experience from different esports, I knew that this was the right place to go and I'm excited to be at the front of it. To all my fans who have supported me over the years, the future feels really bright right now, and I can't wait to show everyone what we can do."

Sinatraa was the star player for the San Francisco Shock. He led the team to victory in the Grand Finals of the 2019 Overwatch League. As a result, he was named the Most Valuable Player of the season.

Won is joined by Apex Legends pro-Jared "Zombs" Gitlin and two Counter-Strike players, Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan and Hunter "SicK" Mims.

Earlier this month, Riot Games teamed up with ESPN for Valorant esports. To better appeal to broadcasters and sponsors, the American firm has removed blood from competitive matches for the tactical shooter.

Furthermore, it wants Valorant esports to "grow naturally." The game will be fully released in the Summer.
