Tempo Storm have released their Heroes of the Storm roster, the organization announced Tuesday evening.

The statement is brief and doesn't include any explanation as to why the change is happening. It does however say that Tempo Storm will not be leaving the HotS scene and that they'll be announcing their new team soon.

Tempo Storm’s current HotS team consisted of Kurt “Kaeyoh” Ocher, Francisco “Goku” Avalos and Thomas “Tomster” Maguire. In May, former teammate Aaron “erho” Kappes left the team while other teammate Brian “Zixz” Skarda retired earlier this month.

The team placed 7-8th at the ESL North America Summer Regional Championship earlier this month, having also placed 3-4th at the Spring Regional Championship in February. They also took home 7-8th place at the 2015 Heroes of the Storm World Championship.

This news comes just a month after Tempo Storm sold their CS:GO roster to Immortals when team owner Andrey "Reynad" Yanyuk felt his team had been excluded from ELEAGUE for personal reasons against him.
