4Kings Close Their Doors Until 2010
UNITED KINGDOM -- Four Kings have shut their doors temporarily due to "internal problems over the past few months".
The organization has stated they will return, but not before at least 2010. They have promised that they will come back "stronger, more resilient, and worthy of your support".
While it is unknown what exact problems made them shut down, CEO of 4Kings, Andréas "fisk" Johansson said that it was due to internal problems over the past few months.
The TrackMania team and the FIFA09 team will retain their contracts. Surprisingly, however, the Four Kings contract with their Counter Strike: Source roster will not be renewed and they are apparently already being transferred to a new organization.
