Psalm is quitting Fortnite in order to pursue a professional career in Valorant, the recently released first-person shooter made by Riot Games.
Before his retirement, Harrison “Psalm” Chang had reached the top level of competitive Fortnite, placing second at the Solo Fortnite World Cup finals in 2019 to win an impressive $1.8 million prize. In the tweet that announced his retirement, Psalm thanked Epic Games and Fortnite for the opportunity to play professional and expressed a desire to start playing Valorant competitively.
Psalm is not the only former Fortnite professional to leave the scene for opportunities in Valorant or other games. Jake “Poach” Brumleve, a member of Team Liquid’s Fortnite team, made an announcement on March 30 that he’d be stepping away from Fortnite to explore opportunities in other games.
Psalm has already made a name for himself in other games, such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2, and Heroes of the Storm, but still wants to establish himself as one of the most decorated competitors in the history of gaming.
While Counter Logic Gaming has not yet officially announced a plan to develop a competitive Valorant roster, more information on Psalm’s situation will most likely be available near the end of April as teams begin to set their lineups for a potential competitive Valorant season.
If signed, Psalm would join the likes of Braxton “Brax” Pierce, who had already signed with T1 as a professional Valorant player and content creator for the organization.
