While the organization has announced that rhyme and luckeRRR are to join the NiP roster, the rest of the team has not yet been announced. The organization seems to have high ambitions for the Valorant scene, with Jonas Gundersen, COO of Ninjas in Pyjamas, stating that:
“We strive to be the best team in the world at everything we do and the road to achieving that in Valorant is both new and incredibly exciting. It will require us to keep working towards the performance and roster philosophy we have across all our teams and at the end of the day, it’s our ability to attract, inspire and retain the best players that will be at the heart of our esports setup, giving them all the support needed in order to fulfill their potential.”
NiP also revealed that they would be releasing their Paladins roster, emphasizing their focus on Valorant moving forward.
