Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, announced that eight slots of the new franchise-based Call of Duty league have been sold so far.
Therefore, the news is that another seven are added to the seven already confirmed organizations, whose name currently remains a mystery. Could it be an Asian franchise or another European one? We’ll find out soon.
The CEO has also formalized the name of the league (it will be called, apparently, Call of Duty Global League ). Activision also confirmed a report that the teams will already be able to play home games next season.
Activision Blizzard, then, while confirming the eighth team, as we said it has revealed neither the investor who bought the slot nor the city that will host the organization.
The new franchise, however, will be joined in New York, Los Angeles, Minnesota, Dallas, Toronto, Atlanta, and Paris, which have paid about 25 million dollars to acquire the slot in the league). 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).
