Activision Blizzard has changed the way the Call of Duty League works under the latest developments in the COVID-19 outbreak.
After cancelling all Overwatch League homestead matches, the company has announced that it's also turning all CoD League live matches planned for 2020 into online-only events.
Here is what the company said:
"The health and safety of employees, fans, players, teams, and partners is paramount to Activision Blizzard Esports.
After careful review and working in close collaboration with our teams, we are shifting all currently scheduled 2020 Call of Duty League live events to online-only competition, effective immediately. For details on previously ticketed events, please visit host team websites and follow their social channels.
The new online-only matches will be broadcast live to fans. Dates will be announced shortly, along with tune-in details."
The Call of Duty League holds tournament-style events across the US hosted by participating teams in their cities. The online-only matches will still be livestreamed on youtube.
