He teased a move over to Valorant through a video released yesterday.
Proper details about his move will be released soon by the player.

One of the Counter-Strike legends Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund has been absent from competitive CS:GO since September 2020, following Dignitas decision to bench him along with Richard “Xizt” Landstrom. It seems the experienced Swede is ready to finally make some moves in 2021 and it might involve him moving over to Valorant, as teased in a recent video released yesterday.

GeT_RiGhT Teases Moving Over To VALORANT

After having spent around 13 years playing Counter-Strike professionally which involves the legendary '87-0' map win streak under the Ninjas in Pyjamas banner, the 30-year-old is now ready to leave the game behind.

GeT_RiGhT who is considered to be one of the best players to have ever played Counter-Strike has teased a move over to Riot Games’ tactical first-person shooter Valorant. In a video released yesterday titled ‘Coming soon…’ a camera can be seen moving through a dimly illuminated room and coming to a stop on a light post titled ‘Valorant’.

This video comes six days after GeT_RiGhT had released a video where he can be seen turning his back and walking up a path of stairs to the tunes of the song 'Don’t Stop Believin' by Journey. That video had got everyone curious because in it the Swede can be seen dropping the Dignitas CS:GO jersey to the ground as he symbolically turns his back on CS:GO to embrace a new path.

For now, it is unclear if GeT_RiGhT will be moving over to Valorant as a player or a coach. But the even bigger question is if he will be staying with Dignitas moving ahead or join another organization, because despite him throwing away the Dignitas CS:GO jersey in the previous video he still endorses the organization across his multiple social media handles.

It will be interesting to see what the whole announcement is as GeT_RiGhT will soon be revealing the complete details about his move over to Valorant. The CS:GO community will eagerly be waiting to see what the Counter-Strike GOAT has in store for them.
