The Call of Duty League is on the verge of changing in a big way, as things are about to switch over to World War II during the offseason. Before Call of Duty: Vanguard releases, though, it's time to crown a champion for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The Call of Duty League Championship Weekend 2021 is already underway and is being held live from the Galen Center in Los Angeles, CA. Shacknews is here with everything you need to know.


Before venturing into the prize pool and all of the COD championship details, we wish to acknowledge the continuing situation at Activision Blizzard. As a show of respect to the employees, we would like to take a moment to repost their demands that they made public prior to their walkout. Furthermore, we would like to encourage our readers to donate to the following charities: Black Girls CODE, FUTURES, Girls Who Code, RAINN, Women in Animation, and Women in Games International.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
