Game Over for the CPL

By Deane Barker on March 13, 2008

The CPL Ceases Operations: Put away your X-Box, folks. The first professional gaming league has shut its doors.

Effective immediately, the Cyberathlete Professional League (CPL) will cease operations. Therefore, all CPL events currently scheduled for 2008 are hereby canceled.

[…] the current fragmentation of the sport, a crowded field of competing leagues, and the current economic climate have prompted the CPL to suspend its pro-tournament operations. The CPL regrets that this news will disappoint those that were planning on attending the summer and winter events this year.
