Call Of Duty League Moves To PC, But Players Can't Use Mouse And Keyboard

The latest Call of Duty League season has made a number of big changes to the format and competition.


The upcoming Call of Duty League competitive series has announced a major platform change. For the upcoming season, competition will take place on PC, with one big catch.

Players must use a controller instead of mouse and keyboard controls. "This means that all pro matches will be played on PC and all pro players must use a League-approved controller of their choice," Activision said in a blog post.

The company said players will have an "expended choice" of controllers, but they must all be approved by the Call of Duty League. Further details about supported peripherals and more details in general regarding controllers will be announced later.

In addition to the platform change, Activision announced that the public competitions series--Call of Duty Challengers--will now support cross-play between console and PC. While there is crossplay, all players must use a controller.

Before this, Activision announced that this year's Call of Duty League competition featuring Black Ops Cold War will bring back 4v4 matches compared to 5v5 for the previous season.

Black Ops Cold War was recently announced. The campaign takes players to 1981 in a story that is a direct sequel to the 2010 original Black Ops. We recently got to see the multiplayer mode, and you can see some footage of the VIP Escort gametype above.
