The inaugural season of the next Call of Duty Championship, renewed from the ground up and based on franchises and a recognizable city identity (exactly like the traditional sports teams), will start immediately with a ” home / away ” format for regular matches. season.
Activision Blizzard is focusing a lot on this new Call of Duty World League and seems to want to do things right from the start, using a system that has by now been tested with the Overwatch League.
The latter, however, will only start from its third season, after being hosted by Blizzard Arena in California for the first two years and after some sporadic experimentation outside the home during this year.
Johanna Faries, the commissioner for export of Call of Duty, recently installed, said: ” We are thrilled that the future of Call of Duty exports will bring more competitive events to fans in cities around the world. “
The new league, at the moment, has seen the signing of seven franchises(which have paid about $25 million for the slot): Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Minnesota, New York, Paris, and Toronto. According to some well-informed sources, they should be at least twelve in all.
Some owners of the franchises of the new Call of Duty World League are the same who already have control of the Overwatch League teams under an initial right of first refusal. These include Atlanta Esports Ventures (Atlanta), Envy Gaming (Dallas) and OverActive Media (Toronto).
