In a recent Twitch stream with popular Russian rapper Morgenshtern, s1mple spoke about the future of Boombl4 in CS:GO.
According to s1mple, rumors point towards Boombl4 moving to an international team which is not likely G2 Esports.
Boombl4 following his controversial divorce had also spoken about his future in esports and CS:GO.

Former NAVI captain, Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhaylov, has now been away from the competitive CS:GO circuit for almost two months. Though he had spoken about continuing his career in esports, nothing substantial has come forward in that regard so far.

During a recent twitch stream by famous Russian rapper Morgenshtern, Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev was seen chilling with the 24-year-old as they spoke on various topics including the future of Boombl4.

Being one of the best CS:GO players in the world and a former teammate, s1mple's statements surely carries a lot of weight and impact, especially in the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) region.

S1mple comments on the future of Boombl4 in CS:GO

Ever since his controversial divorce with Angelika "LiQueen" Mikhailova, Boombl4 has been preoccupied dealing with certain things that have distracted him from focussing on his career in esports and CS:GO.

After he was accused of using drugs by his ex-wife, who shared a video recording of him allegedly consuming a drug called Mephedrone. The 23-year-old decided to pursue legal actions against her by filing a defamation lawsuit, while also sharing a drug test to prove his innocence.

Initial statement by Boombl4

In a former statement about his future, Boombl4 had mentioned that he wants to continue competing in CS:GO. If he was presented with an opportunity, he would play the game without breaking down.

So far, no team has shown an interest in signing him but with the summer player break going on and multiple rosters looking to make changes, this might be Boombl4's best chance of getting picked.

Speaking about his future, s1mple straight as an arrow and without twisting his words said that "I think that....rumors say that he will move to [an] international team - G2 Esports. But...knowing him (Boombl4) I don't think they will take him there. But these are just my thoughts, I always speak my mind."

Since Boombl4's departure, NAVI has competed in two CS:GO tournaments with Viktor "sdy" Orudzhev as a stand-in and it remains to be seen if the Ukrainian organization signs him as a permanent player or not.
