12 teams, US$6 million, one championship.
As we reported earlier, the Call of Duty World League tournament will be changing into a franchise-based league starting in 2020. Activision has finally officially announced the new Call of Duty League and revealed the 12 participating teams’ location of origin.
The teams will come from:
- Los Angeles (KSE)
- Los Angeles (IGC)
- New York
I find it to be a bit unfortunate that we don’t have any teams from Asia, unlike in the Overwatch League but I suppose it’s because the Call of Duty pro scene just isn’t that big in these parts. The tournament’s prize pool totals up to more than US$6 million.
The tournamet’s official description:
“The Call of Duty® League™ is a global, city-based esports league composed of 12 professional teams, representing 11 markets across North America and Europe. In its inaugural season, pro teams compete in 5-versus-5 Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® multiplayer matches, exclusively on PlayStation®4.”
