Compete Call of Duty players can jump into ranked playlists sooner rather than later.
Call of Duty Federation General Manager Daniel Tsay announced today that Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Ranked Play is “planned to roll out” in February. Tsay also announced that due to the delay of the second part of Vanguard and Battlefield, CDL teams won’t have custom character skins and weapon cams for the “first few weeks of [CDL] Season.” Team Packs, which allow fans to purchase in-game cosmetics by specific teams, will be delayed until “late February,” according to Tsay.
Regarding the viewership incentives that have become common practice for CDL broadcasts, the rewards fans receive for watching CDLs will be slightly delayed. Rewards from the pre-season Kickoff Classic will be added to fan accounts on January 28, while any incentives earned from watching the regular season’s opening weekend will go to Vanguard’s season two.
Yesterday, Activision announced the delay of season two from February 2 to February 14, which the publisher said was necessary to “fix the stability of the game as well as bugs, to ensure overall level of perfection for the player and provide updates including gameplay optimization and in-game balance. ”
The delay comes behind the heels of Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard on January 18, as well as during several months of public outcry regarding certain controversies involving Activision Blizzard.
CDL’s pre-season Kickoff classic event will begin on January 21. The regular season will begin on February 4.
