Call of Duty eSports, in official capacities, has been played exclusively on Microsoft consoles starting with the Xbox 360 last generation. This is mainly due to Activision’s DLC and marketing deal with Microsoft which expired this year. Sony revealed at their E3 conference in June that with the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Activision will be partnering up with Sony for future Call of Duty content and marketing.
Till now many CODCompetitive fans were wondering on which console Black Ops 3 eSports tournaments will be played on as the partnership announcement didn’t talk about anything related to the topic. At today’s Black Ops 3 eSports event at Gamescom, Black Ops 3’s Game Design Director revealed that future events will indeed be played on the Playstation 4.
Below is the exact quote:
PlayStation is the new home of Call of Duty eSports.
Time for all Competitive Call of Duty players to get used to the new controllers, eh?
