MLG Pro Circuit Championship in Columbus drops StarCraft 2

StarCraft 2 is no longer a featured game at Major League Gaming's Pro Circuit Championship event, planned for November 22 - 24 in Columbus, Ohio. MLG co-founder Sundance Giovanni took to Twitter to make the announcement, stating the game "just doesn't fit" into what MLG has planned for the show.

Earlier this year, MLG hosted the first season of the StarCraft 2 World Championship Series, which spans 13 events across several regions, culminating in a final event at Blizzcon. Following the first season's conclusion, MLG handed duties over to North American Star League last June, in favor of producing its own eSports competitions.

MLG, founded in 2002 by Sundance Giovanni and Mike Sepso, is the most widely recognized eSports league in the world. Supported games include Infinite Crisis, Halo 4, League of Legends, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and more.
