Astralis was the first Danish player-owned organization founded in 2016 as a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team by the former all-Danish roster of Team SoloMid. After winning two CS:GO majors, the organization was rumored to be joining the EU LCS as part of the 2019 European franchise program. It was later reported that Astralis' parent company RFRSH Entertainment had acquired Origen and would use their name and brand for their EU LCS entry.
On August 9, 2019, Astralis and Origen had been moving over to Astralis Group, which had split from RFRSH Entertainment.
On September 15, 2020, it was announced that the Astralis Group would merge all activities and teams into the Astralis brand, including the League of Legends team Origen.
