Hector “H3cz” Rodriguez is looking to return to OpTic Gaming full-time, whether alone or in conjunction with another, while at the same time divesting from his current position as Co-Owner and Co-CEO of NRG Esports, according to a report by Adam Fitch of Dexerto.
Currently, Rodriguez is the co-owner and co-CEO of NRG Esports, which owns and operates The San Francisco Shock (Overwatch League), OpTic Chicago (Call of Duty League), and various other teams in titles such as Rocket League and Fortnite, but his heart has always been with the OpTic brand. If Rodriguez is able to divest himself from NRG, it is possible that he has negotiated a deal that sees him take OpTic Chicago with him.
Rodriguez has been synonymous with OpTic since 2007 — OpTic which started out as a Call of Duty team — when the organization was handed over to him after the exit of Ryan “J” Musselman.
After creating one of the winningest and most popular Call of Duty brands in the world, Rodriguez sold a majority of the company in 2017 to Infinite’s Chris Chaney and Texas Rangers Co-Owner Neil Leibman. Infinite would then offload the brand to the Immortals Gaming Club, and then from there Rodriguez reacquired the brand in November 2020.
