Some interesting news just dropped on Twitter courtesy of Mad Catz’ Mark “MarkMan” Julio. According to the community and sponsorship manager, official pages for Evo 2013 champion Xian and Gackt have been removed from the peripheral manufacturer’s website, suggest a parting of ways. Both players were sponsored by Mad Catz through Desperation Move, a competitive gaming organization based in their home country of Singapore.

While little information has been provided as to why the duo is no longer sponsored, the split appears to be amicable, with Julio sending them well-wishes in an as-of-yet unannounced new venture.

We would like to wish all the parties involved the best of luck as they move forward.
