Polish jungler Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski has been among the best players in the history of European League of Legends. Jankos started his professional gaming career in 2013 at the age of 17. His most successful periods were under G2 Esports.

With G2, Jankos boasted several regional championships in just over three years. At the tail-end of his career, the 25-year-old might move to North America for a brief spell.

A year back, the veteran jungler said that although he was happy to stay with G2 Esports, he wasn't sure about the future. He also mentioned that if G2 didn’t succeed that very season, he might retire. Jankos added that the organization would benefit from the addition of new names to the roster.

But even after G2's consistent silverware hunt, it seems like Jankos' time with the European League of Legends champions has finally come to an end.

Cloud9's midlaner Luka "Perkz" Perković, in a recent Twitch live stream, mentioned that Jankos will be looking for a NA move in the upcoming League season.

In a previous interview, Jankos mentioned that he would only consider leaving Europe for North America if he found the hassle worth it.

Fans, though, want Jankos to finish his career with G2. Jankos’ departure would mark the end of a glorious era for G2.

The Polish professional also plans to become a full-time streamer once he is done with his League of Legends career. To grow in viewership, Jankos will only stream in English for easier communication with global fans.

With Jankos planning for his future outside the LEC, this might be his last chance to win the World Championship with G2. The European heavyweights came very close to taking home their first Worlds title last year.

They were eventually taken down in the semifinals by South Korea's DAMWON Gaming, the title holders.
