Tokido has parted ways with Echo Fox

Tokido has announced over Twitter that he is no longer "FOX|Tokido." That is to say, that his contract with Echo Fox has expired.

It doesn't appear that Tokido will be renewing his contract with Team Echo Fox. The departure appears to be on good terms as Tokido thanks Echo Fox for everything and stated that it was a good experience.

Most notably, Tokido is often regarded as one of the greatest Street Fighter players in the world. His favorite character, Akuma, was never regarded as a top tier in Street Fighter 5 until Tokido won EVO 2017 with the fighter.

Earlier this month, Justin Wong also announced his departure from Team Echo Fox. This came after Momochi, REC|Punk, JDCR, Scar, Saint, Choco Blanka and Theo also leaving the team.

It isn't just Echo Fox's fighting game division that is seeing these cuts. They also previously released their entire Gears of War team and their League of Legends head coach back in October.

As far as fighting game players are concerned, their remaining members are FOX|MKLeo, FOX|Dekillsage, FOX|Mew2King and FOX|SonicFox.
