Today, the League is announcing it will move pro team competition to PC + Controller beginning with the 2021 season. This means that all pro matches will be played on PC and all pro players must use a League-approved controller of their choice.
As part of this transition, Call of Duty League competition will maintain exclusive use of controllers for the upcoming season. This change provides players with expanded choice of controller, allowing them to select the League-approved controller style that works best for their game. More details and rules pertaining to peripherals will be released at a future date.
For the first time in Call of Duty esports history, competitors will be able to compete online in Call of Duty Challengers on their platform of choice across console and PC. We will continue to test platform hardware and make restrictions if necessary.
This is great news for Xbox, as the competitive scene is not on Playstation anymore. You can now compete everywhere. The switch of the competitive scene and Streamers to Playstation was one of the reasons why Xbox lost its big lead as the COD platform.
CoD marketing got less important today.
