The upcoming season of the Call of Duty League is scheduled to begin much sooner than any of the seasons that came before it.
The season’s tentative schedule will be revealed soon, according to reports. The first major will take place concurrently from December 15 to December 18.
“I have obtained leaked internal documents that appear to reveal the full CDL 2023 season schedule.” An esports reporter, Jacob Hale, tweeted.
Below is a list of the alleged schedule for Call of Duty League:
Major 1 Pro-Am: December 15-18, 2022
Major 2: February 2-5, 2023
Major 3: March 9-12, 2023
Major 4: April 20-23, 2023
Major 5: May 25-28, 2023
CDL Champs: June 15-18, 2023
Ever since they introduced the Call of Duty League in the year 2020, Activision has been busy working to improve the schedule and overall structure.
The global health crisis caused the Home Series format to be scrapped in 2020, but in 2021 and 2022, they began to use online qualifier matches as a stepping stone toward the Majors, which were team-hosted LAN events for every franchise.
Players and fans together have repeatedly offered methodologies to enhance the schedule, along with an early commencement date, tournaments for Challengers competitors to face off against the pros, and several other ideas.
At least according to the records that were leaked, the concerns of fans seem to have been heard.
The full calendar that was found in the leak reveals that there are several bye weeks in between the main events, which take place approximately once every month. According to sources, the season will reach its climax with the CDL Championship Weekend, which will take place from June 15 to 18.
This is going to put the CDL on a very different schedule than it has had in the past, which saw the league beginning in January or February and continuing until August. This timetable is going to be very different. The couple of months that pass between the introduction of a completely new game and the beginning of a CDL season is the rumoured model that would help relieve that concern in a significant way.
According to the report, the CDL as a whole will be in charge of hosting the 1st Major as well as the Championship Weekend. Individual CDL organizations will be responsible for organizing the 2nd through 5th Majors.
The debut of Trendy Warfare 2 is scheduled for October 28. This will allow players and teams to have well over a month of practice time before the first main event of the season begins in December, while also making the most of the excitement surrounding the launch window for the brand new title.
Although reports have confirmed this schedule, it is important to keep in mind that the dates as well as the calendar itself are susceptible to change.
The Call of Duty League stated: “We have been working closely with our teams to finalize the 2023 season schedule, exploring several draft options these last few months. A full season reveal is planned for this fall with more information on dates and locations for each event.”
