Orbit and their CS:GO squad have decided to part ways, team coach Neil "NeiL_M" Murphy has told HLTV.org.
Orbit caught headlines at the end of April when they signed a Benelux-based CS:GO team with three players from the Netherlands and two from Belgium, all well established in the scene.
The move represented a new direction for Orbit as the European organisation had just parted ways with their Swedish roster, featuring players like Alexander "SKYTTEN" Carlsson and Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi.

Under Orbit's banner, Fréderic "Monu" Dewever's men competed in a number of online tournaments, but they were never able to establish consistency against the big teams in the scene.
The players have now decided to cut ties with Orbit as they seek an organisation that can help them make the next step in their careers.
"We have left the organisation on mutual terms," Murphy told HLTV.org. "This was agreed on good terms, and I would like to thank Orbit for their support over the last five months and wish them the best of luck in the future.
"We will stay as a team and we are searching for a new organisation to play under!
"We have already received an interesting offer, but we are of course open to other offers as well! If you are interested e-mail me at [email protected] and we can talk from there!"
The following players are now looking for a new organisation:
Mike "mikeS" Tuns
Joey "CRUC1AL" Steusel
Kaj "kajsk1ng" van Staalduinen
Fréderic "Monu" Dewever
Tom "STRYKER" Colyn
