Just one day after announcing the Call of Duty World League, Activision revealed some more important information today when they announced that there will be an age restriction on the players eligible to compete in the new World League.
Activision released an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) post regarding the introduction of the Call of Duty World League. In this post, Activision revealed that players must be 18 or older in order to be eligible to compete in the World League.
Here is the exact question and answer posted in Activision’s FAQ:
Q – What are the age limits to the Call of Duty World League? A – Players that are 18 years of age and over are welcome to participate as part of the Call of Duty World League Pro Division and Challenge Division.
The announcement of the age restriction for the new Call of Duty World League has many of the younger players concerned about their future in the competitive scene for Call of Duty®: Black Ops III.
One of these players in particular is Tommy “TJHaLy” Haly, who currently plays for Team eLevate.
The 18 year old age limit will definitely have some major implications on rosters heading into Black Ops III. Stay tuned for more information about what this age restriction means for the future of competitive Call of Duty.
