“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 company said in a statement.
The new online-only matches will be broadcast live to fans. Dates will be announced shortly, along with tune-in details.
“Call of Duty League has seen firsthand the power of our live events in our inaugural season, and will return to city-based competition in front of live audiences as soon as it is safe and logistically possible,” the company added.
With the latest development, Call of Duty joins a growing list of companies who have been moving their events online.
Tencent and PUBG Corporation have also announced that the PUBG Mobile Pro League has been converted into an online competition until further notice due ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
