Russian Esports organization Quantum Bellator Fire is exploring a potential return to professional CS:GO with a new lineup, according to multiple sources close to the situation. The organization is in discussions with several young Danish players as well as a few veterans, said those same sources.
The names of potential players for the possible return of Quantum Bellator Fire include but are not limited to: Danny "BERRY" Krüger, Mathias "Maccen" Madsen, Victor "Staehr" Staehr, and Theis "j3nsyy" Jensen. Both Jonas "Queenix" Dideriksen and Danni "smF" Dyg were contacted by the organization said one source, but it is unclear if they have interest in joining the project at this time. Queenix was just released by x6tence who have taken a step back from CS:GO, a move first reported by DBLTAP.
Quantum Bellator Fire is most known for their former lineup's run at the ELEAGUE Major: Boston in 2018, where the team made it to the playoffs of the Valve sponsored event. The last lineup was released in Oct. 2020 after only three months with the organization. The organization was accused of withholding payments from players and coaches in 2019 by members of the team, including now Natus Vincere player Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov. It is unclear at this time if the organization ever reconciled these alleged debts.
The professional CS:GO community received Major news earlier this month with the announcement of the next Major tournament, scheduled to take place in Late October this year. The tournament will be played offline in Stockholm, Sweden and offer a prize pool of $2,000,000 USD and will be presented by PGL. The last Major tournament was the StarLadder Berlin Major in late 2019.
