DIRECTV, STAR TV, and British Sky Broadcasting announced today that their e-sports competition, Championship Gaming Series, has come to an end.

"While the concept was ahead of its time and we are extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished, it became increasingly clear as this ambitious project evolved, that profitability was too far in the future for us to sustain operations in the interim.

Our goal was to be ahead of the curve in the e-sports space, and we conceived of CGS as a true sports league.  We invested wholeheartedly in the venture and presented viewers with a top-notch production, but the economics just didn’t add up for us at this time."

The gaming tournament would have been into its third season as the business was launched in 2007. CGS featured internationally favored games such as: FORZA 2, Counter-Strike: Source, DOA4, FIFA 08, and World of Warcraft. BSkyB,

STAR and DIRECTV have stated that even with this announcement they will "continue to be committed to the video games sector, which is an important part of many of our customers’ lives and a great source of entertainment."
