And just like that, the Echo Fox team grows even smaller as fighting game legend Justin Wong announced his departure from the team early Tuesday evening.

"I’m here to announce I am currently a free agent and I have not resigned with @echofoxgg," he tweeted. "They are an amazing team and wish them the best but I want to see what other opportunities are out there. DMs are open for everyone. Please spread the word would love to find a new home."

Justin was one of the three remaining fighting game players under the Echo Fox banner after they parted ways with the majority of their acquired players last year.

Momochi, Punk, JDCR, Scar, Saint, Choco Blanka and Theo were amongst those whose contracts were not renewed by former NBA star Rick Fox's eSports team last year. In addition, Echo Fox also released their entire Gears of War team and their League of Legends head coach in October.

Echo Fox sprung into the fighting game scene with a massive acquisition back in January of 2017 wherein they sponsored some of the absolute best competitors in Street Fighter 5, Mortal Kombat X, Super Smash Bros. Melee and then Tekken 7 at a later date.

We have yet to see anything on the matter from Echo Fox, which now retains FOX|Tokido, FOX|MKLeo, FOX|Dekillsage, FOX|Mew2King and FOX|SonicFox for their fighting game team. You can view Justin's tweet by clicking the thumbnail here:
