The Call of Duty League’s champions are being honored at Verdansk Stadium in Warzone
The champions of the first season of the Call of Duty League are being honored in a unique way: with their faces plastered at the stadium in Call of Duty: Warzone.
Today, Activision revealed that the front entrance to Verdansk Stadium in Warzone will soon display a giant rendition of the CDL trophy, along with pennants featuring all five members of the Dallas Empire who have crowned champions for the 2020 season.
It’s a unique kind of crossover and an example of how game developers and publishers are able to leverage popular games to promote esports.
But this move by the CDL is more akin to traditional sports, where championship banners are raised in local stadiums.
It also makes a lot of sense for Activision to leverage Call of Duty’s incredibly popular battle royale spinoff: Warzone currently boasts more than 100 million players.
