Activision Announces Call Of Duty World League

by on 09/24/2015

Perhaps you’ve heard of esports, the rising trend of national competitions that take place within video games. Call of Duty publisher Activision has heard of it, and being the owner of the #1 FPS franchise in the world, it was a no-brainer to grab a slice of the pie. Hence Activision announced today the formation of the Call of Duty World League.
The World League will be divided into two competitions, Challenge and Pro, and take place in four countries. Call of Duty World League Pro Division kicks off competition in January 2016 in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. As for the Challenge Division, it’s a similar competition but less intense, meant for more “amateur” players (but don’t feel too bad, you’ll still be in the running for big cash). The game of choice will be Black Ops 3, which releases November 6, 2015.
If you and your team make it all the way to the finals, you could share part of a cash pool totaling $3 million dollars. This gigantic prize will be spread among series payouts, LAN events, and the Call of Duty Championship, which existed before the World League but has now been folded into it.
Last year the Call of Duty Championship earned its winners $1 million. For details on how to win a piece of a potentially bigger pot this year, keep an ear open — Activision will be announcing how to enter and compete soon.
