Activision Is Being Sued for $680 Million

Major game publisher Activision is currently being sued by a Call of Duty esports team for perpetuating an alleged monopoly over its competitive scene. The Call of Duty games are a hit among pro FPS players, which is why they are crying out over the way the company has been handling tournaments and organized play. Activision's top-tier Call of Duty organized play is currently concentrated in the Call of Duty League, which replaced the Call of Duty World League back in 2020. This new organization followed the format of sister company Blizzard's Overwatch League, which itself took after other professional sports by having city-based franchises. While it didn't take long for fans to sour on the new league, it had been the only option for high-level play since it was established.
