Hampshire Director of Cricket, Giles White, said: "Mid-way through the 2018 season Reece made it apparent that he wanted to pursue his career elsewhere – we wish him well."
The former-Essex seamer made three first-class, 11 List A and seven T20 appearances since joining the county at the end of the 2015 season.
Topley has featured in 10 ODIs and six T20Is for England.
