The yearly hosted tournament by Activision has just been announced via Twitter, but with some changes.
The BIGGEST change of them all is the re-location of COD Champs, to Florida on the grandest stage Call of Duty has yet to see from August 9th to 13th, rather than its previous California venue.
The news was announced via Business Wire, with Rob Kostich, EVP and general manager of Activision giving this statement:
“The CWL 2017 season is already shaping up to be the biggest one yet. The live events all over the world, including Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, Paris and Sydney have been incredible, and the Global Pro League has already featured intense match ups with teams going after the big Stage 1 prize purses.
So, the CWL Champs in August becomes even more fitting as the culmination of the best that Call of Duty esports has to offer this year. We can’t wait for Orlando.”
The $1.5 million dollar tournament will host 32 teams from across the world, featuring 16 teams from offline qualifiers and 16 teams from Stage 2 of the CWL Global Pro League.
