Veteran Call of Duty pro Brice “Faccento” Faccento took to Twitter last night to announce his retirement from competitive play.


“I will never forget the friendships and memories that came along with [Call of Duty],” wrote Faccento. “With that being said, I’m extremely excited to step outside of my comfort zone and pursue other opportunities in the esports industry!”


Faccento has been a professional CoD player since 2013, with career highlights including a second-place finish at the Call of Duty Championship 2015 with Revenge and a third-place finish the following year with Elevate. He has also played for well-known teams such as Echo Fox, G2 Esports, and Rise Nation. His last event as a CoD pro was with Evil Geniuses’ squad, a fifth-place finish at Checkmate Gaming’s ProDown invitational on Jan. 27.


Faccento plans to stay within the esports sphere for his next step, and indeed, there are plenty of job opportunities for a former top professional. Like many former pros, Faccento might pursue a job as a commentator or analyst. Faccento’s most recent Instagram post shows the player wearing (and promoting) a 100 Thieves hoodie, and a partnership with the organization’s lifestyle brand could help the former pro ease into a career as an esports influencer.


We might not get many opportunities to see Faccento behind the screen in the future, but when it comes to esports, he’s not going anywhere.
