Earlier today the Echo Fox organization released the following statement:
First and foremost, Echo Fox remains committed to its player’s futures – supporting opportunity both inside our organization as well as outside the organization.
It is in the spirit which we have recently granted the option for members of our CS:GO team to explore other organization options if they desire, as Echo Fox continues to make important environmental and structural changes that keep building towards a world-class winning CS:GO team in 2017.
Ryx appears to have been one of the driving factors in getting Echo Fox to grant the option as he has already stated on twitter that he will be looking for a new team.
ShaZam ended up talking about how he is planning to leave Echo Fox as well on one of his streams this past week on Twitch.
Learned a lot as a player this year, ready to move on and hopefully find a nice home🙃

It is not clear yet if any of the remaining 3 members, Freakazoid, Sgares, or roca have any intention on leaving or if they will just be seeking a 5th to replace Ryx.
