Jaesun Won announced via Twitter that he is retiring as the general manager of the Toronto Defiant and esports altogether — effective immediately. Won has been the general manager of Defiant since the Overwatch League (OWL) started in 2018. The announcement marks yet another departure from Overactive Media, the parent company of the Defiant, who let 13 employees go in a round of layoffs in April of this year.

Recently, the OWL has struggled, losing players to retirement and other esports titles. Jay “Sinatraa” Won, the 2019 Overwatch League most valuable player, retired from the San Francisco Shock to play Riot Games’ new tactical shooter, VALORANT. Washington Justice saw its team captain, Corey “Corey” Nigra, follow suit on May 8, when he announced that he would also be leaving the OWL for VALORANT.
Jaesun Won declined to comment when contacted by The Esports Observer.
