Activision has today officially announced details about this year’s Call of Duty Championship, which will play host to 32 of the best COD teams from around the world, who will compete on Call of Duty: Ghosts for $1 million.
The tournament takes place from March 28-30 in Los Angeles, and will be played on the Xbox One.
“Last year’s championship came down to the final minute of the final match with everyone holding their breath to see who would win. The skill, passion and energy brought by these teams and the crowd looking-on showed just what makes our community the best in the world,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “Call of Duty is more than a video game. It’s a pastime shared by millions. It’s exciting to play and fun to watch, and we can’t wait to see what this year’s event has in store.”
The tournament will also be streamed live on Xbox Live and on MLG.TV.
Teams from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia will contend for the right to be called COD champs, and qualifying events hosted by eSports organizations will get started in February and conclude in early March.
The tournament is open to all players, pro or not and details on which maps, modes and travel accommodations can be found at http://www.majorleaguegaming.com/news/qualify-for-the-call-of-duty-championship/.
