Parasite is officially entering the Call of Duty League. The 2013 Call of Duty world champion has signed a two-week contract to join the London Royal Ravens, the organization confirmed today.
“While we continue to deal with immigration issues for ‘Zer0,’ we’re relieved we could find such a great player to help us fill the gap,” said Michael “ODEE” O’Dell, chief gaming officer at ReKTGlobal. “It’s a challenging situation, but we’re incredibly optimistic for this team, and excited to give ‘Parasite’ a chance to shine on the global stage once again.”
Parasite spent the Modern Warfare season looking for a professional contract, competing in Challengers events but never cracking a CDL roster. This is a great chance for the former world champ to prove he can still hang with the best.
London reportedly had top amateur player PaulEhx at the top of its wishlist for a roster spot, but the player declined a 14-day contract.
The Royal Ravens have been playing with Parasite in scrimmages for "a little over a week," so he should have no issue sliding in and playing at a high level.
London's first match of the 2021 CDL season is on Sunday, Feb. 14 against the Seattle Surge at 2pm CT.
