According to a tweet posted earlier today by Trei “Zer0” Morris, Red Reserve has informed its Call of Duty team that they will have to move out of the organization’s Las Vegas team house due to financial difficulties.
This is the latest in a series of unfortunate events for Red Reserve, who saw a number of players and staff members jump ship in February due to issues with the team’s management and finances. While simultaneously expanding the entertainment side of their company, Red Reserve’s owners reportedly breached their contracts with several players and content creators, leaving them out to dry despite their teams’ continued involvement in professional competition.

Rhys “Rated” Price piggybacked off of his teammate’s tweet to inform fans that Red Reserve had been holding out on its players with both their salaries and their share of the team’s prize money.
The eviction of Red Reserve’s CoD team backs up rumors reported by infamous Reddit leaker CoDBurner that the organization is gearing up to move away from esports entirely. But Red Reserve’s exit doesn’t spell bad news for everybody: According to a report published by Dexerto earlier today, it’s possible that FaZe Clan may be able to return to Call of Duty World League competition by purchasing Red Reserve’s spot in the league.
