Activision, Xbox, MLG, and ESL are all teaming up to keep the push on for Call of Duty in eSports. In April, The Call of Duty Championship presented by Xbox will have 32 competitive teams together all for the $1 million prize. The event will be from April 5th to 7th in Hollywood, CA with more details to come.
"More people play Call of Duty multiplayer every day than watch the average regular season game of the NBA. The scale and passion of the Call of Duty fan base is simply humbling, and yet there is no formal way to find out who amongst those millions of players is the best of the best, until now," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. "Watching the performances of the very best Call of Duty players is already a mass spectator sport on YouTube and Call of Duty® Elite. We are going to bring the best players in the world to Hollywood to compete on the ultimate stage, for the ultimate prize. And we are going to invite our entire worldwide fan base to join in the fun."
Keep an eye on the site located here for all the details on qualifying and signing up to be one of those 32 teams. Once you head over there go grab a free Call of Duty Elite acount and start participating in league play in Black Ops II on Xbox Live. Teams of four will have a chance at an entry into the tournament.
