Call of Duty League cancels tournament events, shifts to online-only

The Call of Duty League (CDL) has officially canceled physical tournaments for the rest of the year. In a tweet sent on Thursday, the CDL explains that the tournaments will be played online. This is to ensure the safety of the players, staff, and fans. Homestead tournaments that had been scheduled for the remainder of the year will no longer take place.

Novel coronavirus COVID-19 has affected esports titles all over the world, with the Overwatch League canceling home tournaments and CSGO‘s IEM Katowice being played without fans in the stands. Now the Call of Duty League will go on with all of the players competing over the internet. And it’s of course not just the esports scene that’s being affected by this pandemic. Most traditional sporting events have been canceled or suspended, and beloved gaming convention E3 will also not be going on this year.
