Cyberathlete Professional League ceases operations
It’s a sad time for professional game players. Over on the Cyberathlete Professional League (CPL) website, they’ve announced that the league will cease operations, and all events scheduled for 2008 would be canceled. More on this after the jump.
Over on the Cyberathlete Professional League website (CPL), it’s been announced that the CPL would be ceasing operations, and that the events slated for the remainder of 2008 would be cancelled.
According to the announcement, the CPL cited “the current fragmentation of the sport, a crowded field of competing leagues, and the current economic climate” as the reasons for the suspension of their operations.
Despite this bad news, the CPL reassured winners of the 2007 circuit. On an addendum note placed on the post, the CPL mentioned that previous winners would still be paid their 2007 World Tour Prizes.
It should be noted that 2006 saw an early end for the CPL as well, though this seems to be more final than the previous announcement.
