Teams will have a little over a month to learn the new game.
The Modern Warfare 2 season of the Call of Duty League will officially begin on Dec. 2, the CDL announced today. This marks the earliest start date for a season in the CDL’s young history.
Historically, there has been a bit of a gap between the release of a new Call of Duty title and the start of a new CDL season. In previous years, a new Call of Duty game would release at the end of October or the start of November and the professional season would then pick up at the end of January. This left a period of several months between the hype from the games release to when fans would actually get to see their favorite professional teams play.
The CDL has addressed this publicly by announcing the new MW2 season will begin on Dec. 2. MW2 is set to release on Oct. 28, which gives pros a little over a month to learn the new mechanics of the game before competing on the big stage.
